Discussion workshop: Retention - disaster to master!
Join us as we look at reasons as to why patients may drop out of contact lens wear at the beginning of their journey. Delegates will need to consider all options to ensure maximum retention of contact lens patients. The session will cover cases where delegates will identify various possible reasons that may lead to the early discontinuation of contact lens wear and how to address them before they become a concern.
