Quantum technology has the potential for application in a wide range of disciplines, including vision science. Dr. Ben Thompson of the University of Waterloo’s School of Optometry & Vision Science recently spoke about how the technology has impacted his work at the launch of a new quantum research program.
Waterloo alumnus Kristine Dalton (OD ’07, MSc ’10) is helping to develop a sport-specific classification system that will level the playing field (or in this case the ski hill) for Paralympic athletes.
The American Academy of Optometry held its 98th annual meeting (along with the 3rd World Congress of Optometry) in Orlando, Florida last week and the School of Optometry & Vision Science was well-represented. Both students and faculty shared their research and expertise over four days of lectures, workshops and poster presentations. In addition, a number of our members receive awards, designations and other recognition and we welcomed 200 people to our annual Canadian Alumni and Friends reception.
