ODMA visit Sydney 2017!

 

The Clarity team hit Sydney recently to look at whats hot in frames and equipment recently at the ODMA fair.

Hosted by the Optical Distributors & Manufacturers Association of Australia (ODMA), the ODMA Fair is a trade event held every two years. Since 1979 the ODMA Fair has been a vital resource for the industry.

ODMA2017 took place 7 – 9 July in Sydney at the new and stunning International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour. Not held in Sydney for the past 6 years, there is much anticipation for ODMA2017 to return to the harbour city.

ODMA2017 had an array of new interactive features, major networking events and strong educational content including revamped Masterclasses and Spotlight Seminars.

Recently, ODMA members have been surveyed and have provided constructive feedback to help reshape and improve outcomes of participation in the industry fair. Being back in Sydney, in a stunning new venue with many new initiatives, ODMA2017 promises to deliver the very latest in fashion, innovation and technology and be the best to date.

Watch out for new frames that will be arriving in practice very soon!

We will be doing features on new ranges as they arrive.

Queensland Vision Research Summit 2017

 

About 40 research optometrists, private practice optometrists, ophthalmologists, ophthalmology registrars, orthoptists, biomedical scientists and students attended the first Queensland Collaborative Vision Research Symposium at QUT.

They discussed potential topics for collaborative research including myopia, amblyopia and microbiota and the eye, and potential research questions that could be answered by cross-professional clinical trials.

Dr Ann Webber was the main organiser of the event on 27 June, in partnership with Queensland University of Technology School of Optometry and Vision Science, and Queensland Eye Institute (QEI).

Dr Webber said the goal of the first program was to foster networking among QUT vision scientists, biomedical scientists, optometrists, and ophthalmologists interested in clinical research.

Ann presents at American Academy of Optometry

Ann presented a poster covering research that she and her colleagues have been working on recently at the American Academy of Optometry meeting in Anaheim, USA, in November.

The topic of the poster was " Amblyopia Affects Visual Attention, Visual Search and Scanning in Children".

It was a project of the School of Optometry and Vision Science and the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation at QUT. 

                                         

The poster was very well received and Ann was able to also catch up with her Alumni friends from the University of Houston College of Optometry!

Well done Ann!
