MANCHESTER, N.H.—Blanchard Contact Lenses, a leading scleral lens designer and manufacturer in North America, has launched the Onefit Scleral Lens Excellence Award student program, in partnership with optometric educational institutions in the U.S., according to an announcement from the company. This program will provide students with a variety of vital learning opportunities to develop and enhance their experience with scleral lenses. Third or fourth year optometric students who complete each element of the four-part program, will be presented with the Onefit Scleral Lens Excellence Award, along with a certificate redeemable for their choice of a Onefit or Onefit MED diagnostic fitting set.

“We are very excited to be working with optometric schools to bring students this valuable learning opportunity” said Richard Dorer, senior regional manager for Blanchard Contact Lenses, who designed the student program. “This program was carefully crafted to be challenging yet attainable, while also extremely valuable and rewarding,” he said.

Any student in their third or fourth year, from any optometric school across the U.S., is eligible to participate. Information and an outline of the program requirements should be available directly through optometry schools. For more information, call Blanchard at (800) 367-4009 and ask for Beth Clark, director of marketing communications.
