By 2020, there will be approximately 126 million people with emerging or established presbyopia in the United States!
In this webinar, Pamela Lowe, OD, FAAO (past president of the Illinois Optometric Association) will join us to discuss how to best service this exploding population, which can represent an important growth opportunity for your practice.
We'll talk about:
* How to best raise patient awareness of presbyopia, and present their correction options
* How to identify good candidates for multifocal contact lenses
* How to get your staff to actively engage with presbyopic patients and help educate them
We'll also discuss "The Alcon Multifocal 3:2:1 Advantage", and the materials, replacement schedules, and designs of their current multifocal lines.
A Q&A will follow the talk, don't miss it!

Soft contacts frequently decenter temporally, which can lead to sub-optimal visual outcomes.
In this ODwire.org webinar, Drs. Matt Lampa and Stephanie Ramdass discuss the science behind this decentration, and how the NEW OptiSync Technology allows you to offset the multifocal optics from the center of the lens and target alignment with the patient's visual axis.
Registered ODwire.org members can comment on the technology (and multifocal fits in general!) in this thread.

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.
