'Comfortable vision' for your toric wearers - Alcon

This session is now fully booked

About the session

CPD ref: C-103448


We will be exploring the concept of comfortable vision for toric wearers, assessing their current needs and if we are currently meeting them. 

Studies show a lot of contact lens wearers with astigmatism are not satisfied with their visual experience so we will aim to enlighten ECPs on the importance of understanding the design and surface technology of a toric lens. This will not only increase the ECP’s confidence but will effectively manage the wearer’s evolving visual needs and improve their CL experience.
