Meeting Minutes: 1/12/16

Dr. Nicky Lai spoke to us about his career at the College of Optometry and his story of how he got to be where he is today. Dr. Lai graduated from Ohio State in 2003 with an OD/MS degree. He gave us advice on how to succeed with the difficult course work of optometry school and the process of finding a niche within optometry. Dr. Lai concentrated on contact lenses and did a cornea contact lens residency. He is now the Chief of Contact Lens Service and told us about the various contact lens courses he teaches. Advancements in the area of contact lenses were also discussed, such as how scleral lenses can incorporate more correction for different refractive needs.
