Did you know that over twelve million Australians suffer from long term eye conditions?
However, over 90% of these are preventable or treatable.
Two nights ago, Tania and I were proud to attend a special launch at The University of Western Australia.
UWA launched the very first Doctor of Optometry degree in WA.
The new course will produce optometrists with a focus on early detection, diagnosis, treatment and management of eye diseases.
But where does Ezekiel Eyes fit into this?
Damon is ideally placed to teach Doctor of Optometry students, and offer real world experience at Ezekiel Eyes.
Students will get the opportunity to learn about a variety of soft and rigid contact lenses from Damon.
UWA course coordinator Prof Garry Fitzpatrick and myself:
Got a minute to watch a video? Here’s more from UWA about the course.
Together, we can feel proud of the ongoing work of UWA and the Lions Eye Institute.
At Ezekiel Eyes, we look forward to helping more people to see and improve their quality of life.
