The International Association of Contact Lens Educators (IACLE) has a new Bronze Sponsor – Ophtecs Corporation, a contact lens care solution manufacturer based in Japan.
IACLE President Professor Philip Morgan welcomed the Association’s new sponsor, saying, ‘It’s fantastic news for IACLE and our members that we welcome Ophtecs as a new sponsor. The sponsors are an integral part of IACLE activity, and the Executive Board regularly speak with our sponsor colleagues to update them on our work, and to discuss issues facing our members. With this in mind, we look forward to working with our colleagues at Ophtecs and all our sponsors to continue our work towards IACLE’s mission of developing outstanding contact lens educators.’
Founded in 1981, Ophtecs aims to provide comfortable lens wear for all types of contact lens wearers. This has led to the company developing unique and innovative contact lens care solutions which are distributed in over 15 countries. The company’s corporate mission is to ‘Contribute to the Global Ophthalmic Field’ and they continue to develop new products by having the care for contact lens wearers at heart.
CEO and President of Ophtecs Joe Yoneda commented, ‘We are very excited to be a part of IACLE’s activities and we look forward to working closely with the Association.’
CTO and Executive Director, Mr Fumio Saito said, ‘We are happy and honoured to be a part of this worldwide organisation. We are looking forward to working with IACLE and its members for a long time.’
IACLE Vice President Dr Shehzad Naroo also said, ‘IACLE is very pleased to announce our new sponsor. Ophtecs are a provider of contact lens care products based in Japan with a global reach. This comes at an exciting time for IACLE as we start our plans to grow our membership and develop more educational resources. Partnerships like this are the key to our success.’
