Scleral contact lenses for the regular eye
Please note we are currently delivering our webinars with speakers and the technical support team working remotely from each other. We aim to maintain our usual high standard of delivery but thank you for your understanding in the event of technical hitches.
In this webinar Katie Harrop will introduce you to the use of scleral lenses for the regular eye. It will help you to provide alternatives for patients who are not well served by more commonly fitted contact lenses modalities. You will be introduced to the benefits and limitations of scleral lenses and will also be taught generalised fitting strategies that you can adapt to your chosen lens if you choose to fit scleral lenses in practice. You will also learn about safe handling, both within a fitting appointment and for the patient.
You will be able to claim one interactive CET point after attending this live session.
