Peer review: Don't stop me from wearing my contact lenses!
According to the BCLA CLEAR publications, a large number of eyes can be fitted with mass-produced contact lenses. However, the selection process and determining suitability can be a clinical challenge. In this peer review session, we will delve into how clinical observations, patient feedback, and ocular surface health can impact our decision-making when fitting contact lenses and will explore strategies to improve contact lens performance for patients at a higher risk of dropping out, including those with ocular pathology.
Registrants will understand the appropriate investigation and management opticians for contact lens wearers presenting with red eye and/or visual issues
Registrants will understand learnings relevant to contact lens practice from the Contact Lens Evidence-based Academic Contact Lens Reports (CLEAR) and Tear Film & Ocular Surface Society (TFOS) publications to help maximise success with contact lenses
Registrants will understand how to communicate effectively with symptomatic contact lens patients.
