Hoya to sponsor ABDO College
Students at ABDO College will be learning all about lenses in the Hoya Ophthalmic Lenses Lab, thanks to sponsorship from Hoya.
Andy Sanders, Professional Services Director at Hoya, says, “With innovative optical lens solutions we believe that eyecare providers’ education is key for patient care and Hoya is committed to training, education and upskilling. Valuing education so highly, Hoya is proud to support ABDO College and the education of students to ultimately support the profession and maintain high professional standards.”
Hoya will be refreshing the room with new posters. Students will also have supporting materials from Hoya, a Sensity 2 Lens display, a Myself demo display, a Progressive portfolio display, a mirror and polarised display and a thickness display, and more equipment will follow in 2022.
Dr Robert Cubbidge, principal of ABDO College says, “It is with great pleasure that I thank Hoya UK on behalf of the students and staff at ABDO College for their generosity in providing materials which will support our students in their optical education and for their sponsorship of the Hoya Ophthalmic Lenses Practical Laboratory at the College. Links with industry help our students to gain a wide product knowledge which now includes the innovative product portfolio from Hoya.”
