Inventor of Rose K Lenses

enthrals delegates at Ansal University

The Sushant Menicon Centre of Excellence was launched at the Ansal University campus in September 2018 in collaboration with Menicon Ltd UK. The academic, research and referral centre, located in Gurgaon, benefits patients with corneal abnormalities who are referred to it from across the region.

Certain disorders and injuries can cause the cornea to lose shape or transparency. This in turn leads to visual impairment which cannot be best corrected with spectacles. The most common condition seen in clinical practice is keratoconus. It usually begins at the age of puberty and is progressive, such that the vision continuously deteriorates. The eye needs special lenses to be worn during the day which can restore vision. Corneal transplant surgeries can be averted in more than 80 per cent of patients as they achieve vision with these lenses.

The Sushant Menicon Centre of Excellence uses the Rose K family of lenses for such patients. These lenses have been invented and designed by Dr Paul Rose, a specialist in keratoconus and irregular cornea patients. There are innumerable patients who have had their vision restored and lead a normal life thanks to these lenses.

Dr Paul Rose was awarded the “Creative design and process award” by the

CLMA (USA) in 2000 for innovation in lens design and manufacturing process, and in 2007 by EFCLIN, the largest association of contact lens manufacturers in the world, for his contribution to the contact lens industry. Dr Paul’s lens designs for irregular cornea are now fitted in over 90 countries and the Rose K brand is currently the most prescribed brand for irregular cornea in the world. These lenses fit well, giving comfort, vision and health by restoring normal vision in almost all the patients.

In February this year, Ansal University, in partnership with Menicon Ltd UK, organised a seminar for eye care practitioners on ‘Restoring Sight with Contact Lenses in Patients with Irregular Cornea’ at its Gurgaon campus. The more than 200 optometrists who attended the event were indeed fortunate to attend three-hour training and live fitting sessions conducted by the eminent Dr Paul Rose.

Dr Rose along with a Menicon team from Japan discussed cases, conducted a live review of Rose K patients and counselled them at the Sushant Vision Care Centre. They were welcomed by the college’s optometry students who had the privilege of celebrating Dr Rose’s birthday and gifting him a handmade greeting card. Dr Rose toured the campus and planted a tree as a token of his visit. He expressed his thanks to Prof Monica Chaudhry, director, Sushant School of Health Sciences, Ms Jyoti Dave-Singh, the mentor of the centre, and the clinic team.

Captivated audience

Prof Chaudhry has over three decades of experience in fitting irregular corneas. Both Prof Chaudhry and Ms Jyoti Singh together conduct training sessions for optometrists and ophthalmologists. The training is part of the optometry curriculum and is nurturing many young optometrists to serve those with irregular cornea conditions.

While doing live fitting cases of keratoconus post-graft at the clinic, Dr Rose explained each step of the process. Prof Monica Chaudhry and Ms Meenakshi, clinic head, assisted Dr Rose in the live fitting of lenses.

At the launch of the seminar, Dr DNS Kumar, vice chancellor of the university, welcomed Dr Paul Rose and his team in his address to the gathering. In his speech, Dr Rose said, “Creating awareness about such pressing concerns has become imperative nowadays and I appreciate the commendable initiative taken by Ansal University to conduct such a workshop. Educating the future of the country will provide a vision to the entire country and pave a path for the eye care practitioners to build a healthier tomorrow. The aim is to provide a clearer

vision to everyone and walk the road to mutual growth and good health.”

The delegates were riveted during Dr Rose’s keynote speech on dispensing and how the Rose K XL (Cornea Scleral Lens) is an advantage over normal scleral lenses.

Dr Srilathaa Gunasekaran, consultant, cornea, cataract and refractive surgery services at Medanta, presented an overview of ‘Cross linking and irregular cornea’ and medical management of the disorder. Ms Jyoti Dave-Singh introduced the importance of care and maintenance in contact lens. Prof Monica Chaudhry spoke about how eye care professionals can play a major role in corneal diseases management by training optometrists and providing professional care to the patients.

The mega event was a huge success and the presence of Dr Paul Rose made it very special. The general consensus was that it was an enriching experience with a lot of new learning which can be used in the contact lens practice.
