John Mountford is retiring mid 2018 and will be a great loss to us specialty contact lens practitioners.
This is a quick blog to pay a debt of gratitude to an absolute legend of our specialty contact lens space – John Mountford. For the best part of half a century he has dedicated his time and efforts into optometry and teaching. He is one of my mentors and started the ball rolling for my (not as) long history in fitting ortho-K, scleral contact lenses and RGP lenses. He was one of my teachers in the QUT School of Optometry and showed me the difference scleral lenses and specialty contact lenses can make to someone’s life!
We wish you all the best mate!
