Episode Show Notes

“The future will definitely be customized lenses” says our guest, Daddi Fadel, who works as a clinical scientist with the research team at the Centre for Ocular Research and Education or CORE and as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Daddi is a Fellow of the Scleral Lens Education Society, Fellow of the British Contact Lens Association, Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and a Fellow of the International Association of Contact Lens Educators. Before moving to Canada in the fall of 2022, Daddi ran a very well-regarded specialty lens practice in Italy. Finally, I should say that she is well known worldwide for presentations, publications, books and courses she organizes.

Daddi and I will spend some time on the future of specialty lenses and technologies that are important now and are the bedrock for the future. There are a couple surprises in this conversation so listen carefully.

One of the courses she founded is the highly regarded European School of Scleral Lenses (EUROSCOLE). At the end of the podcast you will hear a special announcement regarding future courses right here in North America.
