Independent ECP event - Manchester



Where: The Studio, 51 Lever Street Manchester M1 1FN

Interactive CPD points: 6

Johnson & Johnson Vision logoThis session is delivered in partnership with Johnson & Johnson Vision.

Delegates will benefit from an AOP peer review led by members of the AOP clinical & regulatory team and enhance their skills with an interactive discussion workshop with Johnson & Johnson Vision.

Patient retention of contact lens wearers is an industry wide challenge. This discussion workshop encourages delegates to consider their current contact lens knowledge or ‘contact lens operating system’ they are using when making choices about the lenses they fit their patients with. Where did this operating system come from and when was the last time they updated their contact lens product knowledge? Do they consider material properties and contact lens design in full and match these properties to each individual patient. Through peer-to-peer discussion, practitioners will have an opportunity to reflect on their contact lens practice, gain insights about any gaps in their knowledge and consider how they can ensure they are fully informed about the lenses they are fitting and able to articulate the features and benefits to their patients. In this way we can continue to meet our patients needs and maximise retention.
