Lyndon Jones, a Professor at the School of Optometry and Vision Science, and Director of the Centre for Contact Lens Research at the University of Waterloo, has been awarded a Fellowship of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS).
Induction as a Fellow is “considered one of the highest honors within Canada’s academic community. CAHS Fellows, who serve as unpaid volunteers, are nominated by their institutions and peers and selected in a competitive process based on their internationally recognized leadership, academic performance, scientific creativity and willingness to serve.”
Lyndon is also a Fellow and Diplomate of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO), and he has been awarded a number of national and international awards, including the 2014 “Glenn Fry Award” from the AAO, 2014 “Donald Korb Award” from the American Optometric Association, 2013 “Max Schapero Award” from the Cornea and Contact Lens Section of the AAO and the 2011 “George Giles Memorial Lectureship” from the British College of Optometrists.
“The CAHS is a prestigious organization with people from many sectors of health science and I feel very honored to be inducted as a Fellow. This fellowship is a reflection of not only my own achievements, but also those of my former graduate students, post-docs and colleagues who I have had the privilege of working with over the past 25 years, particularly my colleagues within the Centre for Contact Lens Research and the School of Optometry and Vision Science at the University of Waterloo", said Lyndon.
Congratulations Lyndon and thank you for your leadership and dedication! We wish you continued success from everyone at the UWaterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science.
