Would you be able to confidently describe why one contact lens would suit their ocular health and lifestyle better than another? Using practical demonstrations, this fast-paced, 3-station session, will take a detailed look at how a patient-centred approach, factoring in lifestyle, ocular health and contact lens material properties, can help to ensure you provide optimum care for every patient.
