CORE expands specialty contact lens expertise

April 27, 2022 Posted by CORE


The Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) has appointed Rosa Yang (see picture), OD, FAAO, as a clinical research associate, a move that supports the growing use of specialty contact lenses worldwide, according to a recent announcement. Dr. Yang also serves as a clinical instructor at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry & Vision Science and is a practicing optometrist in the Greater Toronto Area. CORE’s specialty contact lens-related work spans a range of program areas, including design optimization for orthokeratology, scleral lens physiological performance, and the impact of scleral lenses on ocular surface disease and dry eye management.

“Rosa’s work on improving the clinical efficacy of specialty lenses through optimized design and auxiliary technologies—especially for myopia control and visual rehabilitation—is a natural fit with CORE’s growing work in these sectors,” said Dr. Lyndon Jones, CORE’s director.
Dr. Yang’s cornea and contact lens residency at the University of Waterloo focused on managing patients who exhibited corneal ectasia and severe dry eye with specialty contact lenses, as well as myopia control therapies that included orthokeratology. At the 2020 Global Specialty Lens Symposium, she was lead author on the first place poster in the clinical category, " Special Considerations in Managing a Patient with Penetrating Trauma Using Gas Permeable Contact Lens."
