The Who, Why and How of Scleral Lens Fitting
Melissa Barnett, OD, FAAO, FSLS
Karen Lee, OD, FAAO, FSLS
Many of us have heard about scleral lenses. What are scleral lenses and why are they becoming so popular? Who can benefit from a scleral lens and how do you fit them?
This three hour course will answer all those questions and more, as Dr. Barnett and Dr. Lee delve into the art and science of scleral lenses. After starting with a comprehensive discussion of scleral lens design, nomenclature, and fitting philosophy, the course will identify those who can benefit from scleral lenses and guide the practitioner through every step of the fitting process. Finally lens application and removal tips and proper lens care solutions will be discussed.
