(Press Release) CORAL SPRINGS, FL – ABB Optical Group, in partnership with Paragon Vision Sciences, announces the three winners of the Optometry Student Challenge, a program designed to support optometry students and foster the study of contact lenses.

Through the Optometry Student Challenge, third- and fourth-year optometry students who registered were asked to create an abstract focusing on study projects or student-based case histories related to contact lenses. From more than 40 submissions, five finalists were chosen. The five students were required to convert their abstracts into scientific posters and from there the judges selected the top three posters.

The lead authors of the top three posters were Sara Siebert, Indiana University School of Optometry; Kimberly-Anne Llamzon, New England College of Optometry; and Michael Kreuzer, University of Waterloo.

Siebert, a third-year student and secretary of the Contact Lens Club at Indiana University, presented on utilizing corneal and scleral topography to aid in predicting scleral toricity for the purpose of fitting scleral lenses. 

Llamzon, a fourth-year student and former member of Student Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity at the New England College of Optometry, covered the topic of keratoconus and scleral lenses. 

Kreuzer, a fourth-year student and former Interprofessional Liaison of the Canadian Association of Optometry Students at University of Waterloo, presented on reducing scleral lens fogging with an impression-based design versus a conventional lens.
