On 1 December Nicholas and Lauretta Ridley visited the David Apple Laboratory at Heidelberg University Hospital to meet with Prof Dr Gerd Auffarth and Donnie Munroe. The laboratory's work involves research into lenses and equipment associated with IOL implants. Nicholas had an attempt at cataract surgery using the laboratory's phaco simulator and realised that he had not inherited his father's surgical dexterity! Strong links have been established between the Laboratory and the Ridley Eye Foundation, especially in connection with training for sustainable cataract surgery at Harpur Memorial Hospital.
