Malaysian member awarded Honorary Membership

Dr Sharanjeet Kaur began her teaching career in 1986 at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in Bangi, Malaysia. In 1995, she founded a resource centre at UKM using IACLE resources and was appointed the first coordinator for the centre, named ‘UKM-IACLE Resource Centre’. Although Sharanjeet would love to continue teaching, residents in Malaysia who reach 60 years of age must take mandatory retirement. Sharanjeet has held IACLE membership for 27 years and due to this and her retirement, IACLE awards her with Honorary Membership. ‘The resources provided by IACLE are very helpful and up to date. I am truly happy to be a part of the organization’, says Sharanjeet. 


MEET A MEMBER

Introducing Feiruz Hamid Umar Bahasywen (pictured above), a junior lecturer at STIKes Binalita Sudama Medan in Indonesia, specializing in contact lenses and binocular vision. Feiruz Hamid Umar wanted to be an optometrist since she was nine years old due to regularly accompanying her sister, who works in patching therapy for amblyopia. She believes IACLE has helped her expand her knowledge, especially in the complications surrounding contact lenses. IACLE has been her ‘go-to resource’ to find information about contact lenses as there are very few journals and articles in Indonesia due to the limited amounts of people who specialize in contact lenses. ‘I believe teaching is a work of love. Those who teach with love will teach children to love learning, and that’s all that matters’, says Feiruz Hamid Umar.

Have you advanced the teaching of contact lenses in your institution/company over the past year but have already taken part in Meet a Member? We’d like to hear about your achievements and share them with our membership. If IACLE colleagues would like to connect with other members, we can arrange this by simply emailing us at iacle@iacle.org.

Image of the Month

Professor Guilherme Cassiano from the Brazilian Institute for Training and Research of Contact Lenses captured the above images using a Huvitz HIS5000 slit lamp with a Canon EOS 600D camera. The patient has pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD), a degenerative corneal condition, often confused with keratoconus. It typically presents with painless vision loss affecting both eyes. Rarely, it may cause acute vision loss with severe pain due to perforation of the cornea. It is typically characterized by a clear, bilateral thinning (ectasia) in the inferior and peripheral region of the cornea, although some cases affect only one eye. The cause of the disease remains unclear.
