iacleis our feature introducing an IACLE member from a different country each month. We are looking for more members to take part. Contact your regional / country coordinator here for details. Meet optometrist Pietro Gheller, Professor at the Università di Padova in Monterenzio, Bologna, Italy and, since 2015, a visiting lecturer at Aston University in Birmingham, UK. Contact lenses are his professional interest but, outside work, Pietro’s passion is dancing the tango! His career spans 10 years in an eye clinic and 30 years in contact lens practice. ‘I try to teach my students clinical aspects as well as theory. IACLE has made educating easier and helped me deliver programed teaching,’ he says.
