We must take a systematic approach to patient training during the initial contact lens evaluation. Ensuring that patients are comfortable with handling their lenses.

Developed to meet the needs of practicing optometrists, the curriculum has been designed to enhance understanding of contact lens practice and enable graduates to increase their competency through theory and the development of appropriate skills.
