2015 Edition

 

On 30th September 2015, on the occasion of the opening of the academic year 2015-16, the Terrassa School of Optics and Optometry presented to professor Lyndon Jones, of the University of Waterloo (Canada), the Optometrist of the Year Award, in its first edition.

Professor Lyndon Jones offered attendees the conference titled "Happiness through learning and education". 

In the course of his conference, professor Jones encouraged students to work very hard to obtain their goals, to never stop asking themselves questions, and to search answers not only in books, but in their colleagues, teachers and in scientific evidence. He described the path to happiness through devoting his life to work for others as an eye care provider and in learning new skills each day to apply to his clinical practice.
