Winners of Valley Contax Custom Stable Cup Receive Scholarships




(PRESS RELEASE) SPRINGFIELD, OR – Valley Contax, a custom contact lens manufacturer, held the Custom Stable Cup Challenge at Optometry’s Meeting 2018 in Denver, June 20-24. Current optometry students and alumni were encouraged to participate by visiting the Valley Contax booth where they partnered up and applied the Custom Stable lens with NaFl. Participants then used TelScreen’s dynamic imaging system and slit lamp to evaluate the lens on eye and record an estimated central clearance. Next, the fitters moved to an Optovue OCT and used its vault mapping software to record the actual central clearance. Once finished, the scorecards were turned in. The school with the lowest average difference between the estimated and actual central clearance, and with at least 10 participants, was to be declared the winner.

Over 100 students and alumni from many different schools of optometry participated. First place was awarded to Southern College of Optometry who received two $500 scholarships and the coveted Custom Stable Cup. The second place winner was Midwestern University Arizona College of Optometry who was awarded a $500 scholarship. Valley Contax, Menicon, Contamac, Optovue and TelScreen were all contributing sponsors along with special support from the AOSA.

Josh Adams, vice president of Valley Contax, said, “The Custom Stable Cup Challenge is always a fun way for students and alumni to come together and compete in a relaxed setting. This year’s event at Optometry’s Meeting was a big success and it was very encouraging to see such a high level of scleral lens knowledge. We know scleral lenses have a bright future with these specialty fitters leading the charge.”
