Contact Lens Discomfort

It is evident that contact lens discomfort has a significant impact on the overall success of this form of vision correction and a dramatic impact on the size of the market. 

This presentation will discuss the impact of contact lens discomfort on contact lens patients and practices, and will aim to improve the confidence of delegates in managing these cases in order to improve patient satisfaction and reduce contact lens drop out. Clinical causes for contact lens discomfort will be detailed, along with methods of assessment and management strategies that can be implemented by eye care practitioners. Common contact lens issues linked to discomfort will be discussed.

The presentation will emphasise the importance of detecting contact lens discomfort and practical approaches to management that are suitable for community optometric practice.
