Dr. Desmond Fonn retired in December 2010 from the Waterloo School of Optometry & Vision Science. Since his arrival in 1986, he established himself as an outstanding leader, teacher and researcher in contact lenses.

In 1988, Dr. Fonn acted as founding Director of the Centre for Contact Lens Research (CCLR) - now called the Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) – establishing their mandate to become an international leader in contact lens research.  Through Des’s leadership, the CCLR has accomplished their goal by building a strong team and by partnering with industry.
