Understanding the Tear Film to Improve Patient Satisfaction with Dr. Krisopher May [#R020]

The health of the tear film is one of the most important ocular surface issues that you’ll face in practice.

Problems with the tear film can lead to contact lens dropouts and decreased patient satisfaction.

In this ODwire.org Radio show, Dr. Kristopher May steps us through:

  • The science of the tear film (including modern updates to the classic “three layer” model that you probably learned in school!)
  • Common issues that impact tear film stability
  • How to prevent tear film issues & improve surface wetting
  • How the latest innovations in contact lens materials interact with the tear film & promote stability, which can reduce dropout.

If its been a while since you’ve studied the tear film (or just want a quick brush-up to help you in practice), you don’t want to miss this show!
