Art Optical Contact Lens, Inc., a leading provider of custom contact lenses, has announced a travel grant opportunity for Optometry students and residents for 2023.
As a dedicated supporter of optometric education and to encourage students with an interest in specialty contact lenses, Art Optical will award up to 6 travel grants, valued at $750 each, to attend a specialty contact lens meeting. Grants will be awarded to 4 winning Optometry students and 2 winning Optometry Residents. Art Optical’s technical team will review all submissions and select winners based on the relevance of the topic to current or future trends in specialty lens fitting, practice, or research. Additional details and grant applications can be requested from the Cornea and Contact Lens Chief at each U.S. and Canadian Optometric University or by contacting Art Optical.
Bruce Morgan, OD, FAAO, Art Optical’s Executive Director of Research & Clinical Support, noted “The Specialty Contact Lens Student Grant Program is a nice addition to the extensive educational resources we provide at Art Optical. Encouraging the next generation of OD’s to embrace specialty contact lenses by giving them a chance to witness a professional meeting and interact with other specialty fitters will be an invaluable experience in their academic career.”
