    Hello all!

    I am looking forward to connecting with all of your at GPLIwire2017 in just one month!


    This course is designed to help attendees understand how scleral lenses can help patients with dry eyes. It introduces attendees to the history of scleral lenses, as well as a description of different ocular surface diseases in which scleral lenses can be an effective treatment. Appropriate fitting techniques of scleral lenses will be reviewed, as well as tips and clinical pearls applicable to patients with ocular surface disease. Common troubleshooting points and recommended care products related to utilizing scleral lenses for eyes with ocular surface disease will be discussed. We will also cover how long term scleral lens wear can affect corneal sensitivity and lacrimal gland function.
