IACLE 2022 Award Winners Announced

The International Association of Contact Lens Educators (IACLE) has announced the winners of the 2022 IACLE Contact Lens Educator of the Year Awards and the 2022 IACLE Travel Award.

Contact lens educators from three countries – India, the United States, and the United Kingdom – received the prestigious IACLE Contact Lens Educator of the Year Award to recognise their achievements in contact lens education.

IACLE has served as a sounding board and a resource for fresh ideas and perspectives on how we can deliver contact lens education to our students, no matter where in the world we teach

This year’s award recipients were:

Dr Lindsay Sicks, Illinois College of Optometry, Chicago, US – IACLE Americas Contact Lens Educator of the Year,

Lavanya Kalikivayi, Ahalia School of Optometry, Kerala, India – IACLE Asia Pacific Contact Lens Educator of the Year, and

Carole Maldonado-Codina, University of Manchester, UK – IACLE Europe/Africa – Middle East Contact Lens Educator of the Year.

The 2022 IACLE Travel Award, to support educators attending major international events, was awarded to Asif Iqbal from Sankara Nethralaya in Chennai, India.

“I am honoured to be chosen as IACLE’s 2022 Contact Lens Educator of the Year for the Americas,” said Dr Sicks. “During the challenging pandemic times, IACLE has served as a sounding board and a resource for fresh ideas and perspectives on how we can deliver contact lens education to our students, no matter where in the world we teach.”

The three IACLE Contact Lens Educator of the Year Awards are sponsored by CooperVision.

“We are proud of our continuing partnership with IACLE to support these awards. Eye care professionals around the world are indebted to the talent, enthusiasm and experience of hundreds of contact lens educators. We congratulate the recipients of this year’s awards and thank them for their tireless efforts to inspire the next generation of professionals,” said Karen Walsh, Director, Global Professional Affairs – 1 Day & FRP Brands for CooperVision.
