This year has seen the discontinuation of a number of popular brands of contact lenses. But what happens when that extended-range parameter lens your patient loves gets discontinued?

You’ve put a lot of time and effort into making your patient happy, and now you have to start all over again. Worse yet, the “recommended replacement” may not fit well and will take 4+ weeks to arrive. You don’t deserve to waste your time and your patients don’t deserve to compromise their vision and/or comfort, just because a big corporate lab decides to discontinue a product.

In this ODwire.org webinar, Dr. Barry Leonard, Director of the California Keratoconus Center, joins SpecialEyes fitting consultant Korinne Ladyzhensky to share strategies for successful refits in a custom soft design.

We'll review several real-life case studies involving patient refits, and have a live Q&A at the conclusion where we can discuss techniques for dealing with this increasingly common issue.


*** SNEAK PEEK ***
Webinar attendees will also get an exclusive "sneak peek" at SpecialEyes’ new monthly lens design, which will be available soon to practitioners. Come to the show & learn all about it!

This one should be interesting -- time marches on, the issue is how to keep people happy when their favorite product disappears....

Just want to remind everyone about the webinar tonight, should be an interesting one, as more lens designs exit the market.

I don't know if this trend is being accelerated by boomers aging out of their old designs, and manufacturers d/c'ing them on that basis (which would make sense demographically).

see ya there
