The IOptoSS would like to congratulate all 2nd and 1st year optometry students for managing our exhibition and stall during IKOD 2010, till the end. Even though we were lacking committees, but we're still able to make it a success. Yes, our teamwork did make it real.
Opto Stall - Lucrative business. It's worth to invest into this project with you guys. Great effort!
Optometry Exhibition - Not enough materials for exhibition doesn't mean that we can't convey the message to the public well! You've just proved it wrong.
3rd year and final year students: We do believe, without your support, it means nothing. Thanks a lot
Lets continue this in the next IKOD..yeah!

Previously, we has discussed on how near work can induce myopia. Have a look at this again. Clinicians have long recognised that sustained periods of near work tend to induce myopia in susceptible individuals. Many researches suggest that accommodation plays a critical role in the progession of myopia.
There are few alternatives that practitioners or you can do beside using optical form of therapy. Try this, Visual Hygiene.

Our department received a Hari Raya postcard from Sr. Ilya, don’t know how long it is hanged on the opto board at the ‘old clinic’. I post it here, so that everyone can read it. She is now pursuing her study at University of New South Wales, Australia and is expected to come back to Malaysia on December 2010 or January 2011, Insya-Allah. ‘Good Luck!’
For sure, all first year students might not know her, she will be your lecturer soon. ‘yang garang plak tu’..haha… not really, she is friendly.
Thanks Sr. Ilya for the postcard, it’s such a great pleasure to hear it from you. Ingat dah lupa Malaysia, sebab kawan dengan kanggaru je.
Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir dan Batin. We’ll post lemang and dodol later!

Kita mencari hanya yang tulen dan jati
sekadar hidup mengerti dan berbudi
dan bumi akan subur, makmur dan mewah
jika kita bekerja dan berikrar hidup bersama
tanah air memberi banyak
mesra mendakap kita
kemerdekaan mendorong kita berdiri dan berbakti
dan dalam alaf baru
semangat kita wajar padu berjalan kita
atas nama tanah air dan bangsa
bangga kerana merdeka
megah kerana bahagia.
