The British Contact Lens Association 2015 Clinical Conference & Exhibition kicks off tomorrow. If you will be in Liverpool, be sure to visit the Volk booth.
Another part of the event not to miss is the poster presentation evaluating the accuracy and repeatability of the Volk Eye Check, an electronic handheld ocular measurement device for contact lens fitting.
Capable of a number of key measurements including pupil diameter, horizontal visible iris diameter, interpupillary distance, margin reflex distance, pupil eccentricity, and strabismus angle, Volk Eye Check helps practitioners screen, diagnose and document ocular characteristics for contact lens fitting and general diagnostic purposes.
The following poster will be presented at BCLA:
Clinical Evaluation of the Volk Eye Check Contact Lens Device Poster # 55; Hall 2 – Saturday May 30th, 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm.
- First author: Chad Rosen, OD, FAAO; Michigan College of Optometry, Ferris State U.
- 2nd Author: Stephanie Ramdass, OD, MS; Michigan College of Optometry, Ferris State U.
- 3rd Author: Craig Norman, FCLSA; Michigan College of Optometry, Ferris State U.

Lastly, at BCLA, Volk will also be previewing Volk Eye Check’s new Best Fit Analysis feature, rolling out in the next few months. When stopping by the Volk booth, make sure to ask about how the Best Fit Analysis uses measurements taken with the Contact Lens Module to recommend specialty contact lens styles either by contact lens manufacturer or by brand from its integrated library. A very convenient feature for getting the fit right the first time!
