Educating others on Keratoconus Contact Lens Fitting

Dom, Heidi and Jackie spent a sunny Sunday in September at an old stomping ground – the University of NSW. Only this time Dom and Heidi were the teachers instead of the students.

The day was jam packed with lectures, live contact lens fittings and interactive workshops with the aim of educating optometrists on the art of fitting specialty contact lenses for eye diseases, such as keratoconus.

Among the presenters were some optometry legends: Paul Rose (the brains behind Rose K lenses for keratoconus), Alan Saks (Kiwi guru and author) and Emmanuel Calligeros (taught Heidi about contact lenses at University).
