Behavioural optometrist Liz Jackson delivered to popular acclaim the Keith Mackriell Lecture on accommodation and convergence in children.
Optometry Tasmania president Brett Jenkinson was presented with the Chains of Office during the dinner, which was sponsored by CooperVision and held at the Museum of Old and New Art.
