By Rhiannon Riches


Professor Barry Collin presented the research medal named in his honour to Professor David Atchison at SRC. Professor Atchison gave a lecture on his research on optical models of human eyes.

SRC 2015 welcomed 825 delegates from Australia and New Zealand at the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre during the three-day congress.

Organised by Optometry Victoria, the dual-stream program credited with up to 55 CPD points featured speakers from interstate and abroad, as well as local experts. Delegates had the opportunity to meet international speakers Professor Blair Lonsberry and Professor Chris Lievens during the congress.

Ninety students from both the University of Melbourne and Deakin University attended the Student Careers Expo, where they had the opportunity to meet with potential employers and hear from recent graduates.
