Attention Optometry Students:

Posted by Mark Andre on Thursday, December 24, 2009

Do you have a burning question about contact lenses? Did a recent lecture leave you wanting to know more? Are you interested in learning a key way to differentiate yourself in the interview process? Or learning how to be proficient in fitting contact lenses to drive value to the practice you will join or lead?


Well, here’s your chance. We’ve got our resident expert, Mark Andre, on hand to entertain and answer your questions. Here’s what he has to say:


My name is Mark Andre and I'm an associate professor at Pacific University School of Optometry. I have been a clinical instructor of contact lenses for the last 24 years and a consultant to CooperVision for the last 17 years.

My primary responsibility with CooperVision is to promote and provide contact lens education to students and eye care providers. As part of my duties, I conduct workshops on toric and multifocal soft contact lenses at the schools and colleges of Optometry.
I am constantly searching for better ways to provide educational support to the schools and the students. I'm hoping this blog will give us the opportunity to share ideas that will lead to the development and implementation of new educational programs at the schools.
I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say and answer any questions that you might have.
