[Optometry Today – Aug 2014] – Optometrist Dr Simon Barnard and IRISS chief executive Yuval Yashiv speak to OT ’s Ryan O’Hare about developing their new diagnostic tool

Dr Simon Barnard and Yuval Yashiv are two of those looking to apply a little more science to the art. The pair are
part of the team behind the Volk Eye Check, a diagnostic device aimed at optometrists and ophthalmologists. Read More.
