Adlens® to run ABO course

Adjustable lenses: a new lens technology

Adlens®, the global leader in variable focus eyewear, is proud to announce its affiliation with ABO courses. The first Adlens® ABO course will be run during Vision Expo West in October 2013.

The American Board of Opticianry (ABO) is the largest and most prestigious Opticians' certification organisation in the world, recognising individuals whose opticianry skills and knowledge meet predetermined standards of excellence. ABO certifies opticians, their certification exams are continually refined and updated to reflect current practices and to ensure that they are fair and accurate measures of professional competency. As a result, ABO certification is highly regarded nationally and internationally, earning recognition from state licensing boards, the U.S. military, and public and private corporations.

 

The lecture and discussion about adjustable lenses, the topic of Adlens®' first course, will be held by Dr Graeme MacKenzie, Director of Industry Affairs, and addressed to opticians and optometric, para-optometric and ophthalmic staff. The objective of the lecture is to provide all the required information about how variable focus eyewear work, how they can be applied to enhance the lens product mix and how developments in adjustable lens technologies can meet the needs of the market in the future.

 

This represents another important step for the UK based company as it underlines the growing importance of variable focus eyewear in the industry and the value of Adlens® innovative products.

 

Dr Graeme Mackenzie comments: "Adjustable lenses represent the first fundamental shift in consumer lens technology in over 50 years and there is tremendous interest in how they will impact the optical industry in years ahead. Presenting an ABO certified course at Vision Expo West will give us the opportunity to demonstrate the great benefits of variable focus eyewear to the ECPs, as well as how to make the most of this technology to better their customers experience.
