Cornea and Contact Lens Residents Celebrate at the 8th Annual Residency Summit.
Valley Contax, in partnership with their generous sponsors, Contamac, eyeXY, Ocusoft, OVITZ, and Tangible Science, recently held the company's Eighth Annual Residency Summit in Oregon's beautiful Willamette Valley. The residents arrived from across the country for learning, socializing, and relaxation to celebrate the completion of their residencies. The three-day event included scleral lens education and fitting, time spent in the manufacturing facility, a taste of Oregon's famous wines and microbrews, and a trip to the Oregon Coast. The education at the event was led by Professional Relations Manager Adeline Bauer, OD, FAAO, FSLS. The focus was on practical scleral lens fitting, new products, and the next chapter of a Cornea & Contact Lens resident's career.
Josh Adams, vice president of Valley Contax, said, "We always enjoy hosting our annual Residency Summit. It's a premier event, and the residents are always so enthusiastic and refreshing. This year was exceptional for all of us since the residents have had few in-person meetings to attend and get to know each other. It was especially gratifying and heartwarming to extend an invitation that we knew would mean so much to everyone in attendance. We're very thankful to be able to support and encourage these superstars as they launch their new careers.”
