“Ask questions to find out something about the world itself, not to find out whether or not someone knows it” – says John Holt
In the Optometry world, ESO is known for its legacy and leadership. It was time again on the 19th November, 2017 to prove ESO’s quality and competence when the ESO’s Quiz team comprising four Optometry Interns, Mr Jude Remedios Menezes, Ms Mehal Prasan Rathore, Ms Vidhyasri, and Ms Gowsalya witnessed glorious victory during the Ahalia’s CME program (ACME III) conducted at Palakkad, Kerala. With participation from 22 Optometry colleges across the country, and 900+ audiences, ACME III had series of guest lectures by eminent Optometry clinicians and researchers. Not to everyone’s surprise, all the speakers were alumni of ESO, currently holding key positions in various institutions across India.
The quiz had preliminary round short listing 7 teams from 30 teams, and ESO made it to the finals by going through the tough prelims. In the Preliminaries, each team was challenged with 3 questions each against the timer of one minute. ESO got into finals despite some nerve-racking moments.
In the Grand Finale of the Quiz, ESO demonstrated a cool and composed lead, and displayed their fine academic spirit. The rounds of Optics, Anatomy, and Ocular Diseases and Clinical examination, being the Quiz master’s favourite hats, ESO emerged victorious taking the first place after four intense rounds. ESO’s team was followed by two teams from Vasan Institute of Optometry, Chennai. The audience and delegates were all in praise for ESO and the team.
The ESO and SN family takes pride in congratulating the students for standing up to ESO’s legacy and wishing them great success in all future endeavours!
Three cheers to ESO!
