The 200th STAPLE Program at

the InterAmerican University of 

Puerto Rico on March 1, 2017

The Soft Toric and Presbyopic Lens Education (STAPLE) Program is a collaborative effort on behalf of Alcon, Bausch+Lomb, CooperVision, and Johnson & Johnson Vision Care.

This program provides hands-on soft toric and soft multifocal workshops to optometry students in the United States and Canada. In these workshops, students have an opportunity to fit a product from all four companies on patients recruited specifically for the event. 

The goal of these multi-company workshops is to provide generic education that will benefit the student through a valuable lens fitting experience in the soft toric and multifocal lens categories.
