Contact Lens Institute Names 2024 Visionaries

Nineteen established and emerging eye care community leaders have been named as Contact Lens Institute 2024 Visionaries. The diverse group represents a range of practice settings, research interests, and specializations. The program, established in 2021, has expanded its reach this year to include the United States and Canada.

Each Visionary has demonstrated a commitment to raising awareness of recent advances in soft contact lenses and prescribing benefits to the patient and practice. Selected in part for their ability to connect with professional colleagues, they will participate in initiatives that promote best practices, tools, data, and clinical and practice management insights through the Contact Lens Institute’s The EASY Way and See Tomorrow initiatives.
