Dr. Chad Rosen and Dr. Joshua Lotoczky, from the Michigan College of Optometry at Ferris State University, were selected for the second consecutive year to share their knowledge about scleral lenses at the American Academy of Optometry Meeting in November.
“The American Academy of Optometry Meeting is one of the most highly-respected meetings in the world for optometry. To be selected for the second straight year, to provide a continuing education lecture, is a great honor,” Lotoczky said. “Despite being one of the smaller colleges of optometry in the country, our faculty work hard to represent Ferris and MCO at as many meetings as possible and we strive to show we are among the experts in our field.”
Lotoczky is an associate professor at MCO and cornea and contact lens chief at MCO’s University Eye Center. He received his doctorate in optometry from MCO in 2004 and became a full-time faculty member in 2006.
Rosen shares his colleague’s enthusiasm about presenting at the meeting.
“Being accepted to lecture at the American Academy of Optometry is a great honor,” Rosen said. “Being one of the largest optometry meetings in the world, it gives the Michigan College of Optometry and Ferris State University exposure on not only a national, but an international level.”
Rosen has taught at Ferris since August 2013. His focus is on specialty fitting contact lenses for eyes that are misshaped. He also focuses on medically-necessary contact lenses for patients who have had surgery or suffered an injury.
The American Academy of Optometry hosts the Academy Annual Meeting to provide continuing education and current vision science research. The meeting also features groundbreaking research in optometry in vision science and relevant education on the latest optometry practices. This year, the conference is being held in Denver, Colo.
