(PRESS RELEASE) SPRINGFIELD, OR – Valley Contax, a custom contact lens manufacturer, recently held the Custom Stable Cup Challenge at Academy 2019 in Orlando, Oct. 23-27. Current optometry students and alumni were encouraged to participate by visiting the Valley Contax booth where they partnered up and fit the Custom Stable. Once finished, the school with at least 10 participants that had the lowest average difference between the estimated and actual central clearance was to be declared the winner.

Hundreds of students and alumni from more than 20 schools of optometry participated. First place was awarded to Michigan College of Optometry who received two $500 scholarships and the coveted Custom Stable Cup trophy. The second-place winner was SUNY College of Optometry who was awarded a $500 scholarship. Five $100 gift cards were also awarded to Kaitlyn Arnold, Ferris St; Amalia Burrell, PCO; Makayla Porter, SCO; Elise Hoi, SUNY; and Inlanders Coulanges, U Montreal. Along with Valley Contax, Menicon, Contamac, Optovue and TelScreen were also contributing sponsors along with special support from the AOSA.

Josh Adams, vice president of Valley Contax, said, “The Custom Stable Cup is an incredible way for students and alumni to work together and compete in a fun setting. This year’s event at the American Academy of Optometry’s 98th annual meeting was once again nothing less than spectacular. I’m continually blown away by the expertise and determination that our future scleral lens fitters demonstrate.”
