Scleral Lenses: Basic Fitting to Advanced Problem-Solving with optional scleral contact lens workshop COPE 58921-CL

Join the Scleral Lens Education Society for a 2-hour COPE 58921-CL course, which includes a comprehensive discussion of fitting and evaluation of scleral contact lenses. The course will include patient selection, pre-fitting diagnostic evaluation of the patient, specialty testing, initial diagnostic lens selection and evaluation, lens ordering, follow-up care, modification of the fit, problem-solving, specific care and handling of the lenses, and in-office management tips. 

Immediately following the COPE-58921-CL lecture, attendees have the option of attending a product-specific, non-COPE scleral contact lens workshop hosted by B+L Specialty Vision Products.
