Description:

Scleral lenses are the fastest growing segment of the gas permeable (GP) contact lens industry, and for good reason.  From keratoconus to trauma to healthy eyes, sclerals are making a profound impact on our patients' quality of life.  This course is for optometrists whose goal is to learn how to fit scleral contact lenses and grow their scleral lens practice.  It will present information on patient recruitment, optimal patient flow, use of technology, optimal scleral lens fitting procedures, and how to troubleshoot the most common complications.  It will discuss the latest scleral lens research and utilize patient cases to enhance clinical understanding.
