Scleral Lens Education Society: Basics of Scleral Lens Fitting It’s As Easy As 1-2-3
This two and a half hour presentation is an interactive, workshop format where basic principles of large diameter, rigid, scleral contact lenses are discussed. A didactic portion is followed by hands-on practice with insertion, removal, and fitting of scleral lenses. Instructors who are Fellows of the Scleral Lens Education Society will provide hands on fitting experience using scleral lenses from several different lens companies.
Course Learning Objectives
To provide participants with knowledge and training of scleral contact lens fitting and management of a wide range of medical conditions. Fitting guidelines and problem solving tips can be applied to the practice of participants. Even practitioners who have never fit a scleral lens should feel comfortable starting a scleral lens practice after the workshop.
