Visual Fields in the OCT Era: Dr. Graham Lakkis (55861-GL)
Although significant developments have occurred in the structural analysis of glaucomatous optic neuropathy using OCT scans, research into functional visual field testing continues with the development of new techniques and refinements of existing strategies to maximise efficiency of testing and accuracy of progression analysis.
Practical guidance will be given that can be applied during encounters with glaucoma patients.

Have you experienced the frustration of toric multifocal lenses that don’t adequately solve the unique optical challenges of your astigmatic presbyopic patients?
Maybe a minus distance over-refraction improved distance vision but ruined the crisp near vision your patient loved, or perhaps you increased add power to improve the patient’s near vision but caused distance vision to suffer.
These struggles can make toric multifocal contact lens fittings painful and time-consuming, leading you to question whether the technology even works and worry about your ability to deliver what you’ve promised: functional vision at all ranges. Does this resonate with you?
In this ODwire.org Webinar, Dr. Doug Becherer explains why these struggles may be happening and how the SpecialEyes 54 Multifocal Toric, a unique pupil-optimized lens with customizable optics, can be a solution for you and your patients.
