Online peer review for independent practitioners
Interactive CPD points: 3
This peer review is delivered in partnership with Johnson & Johnson Vision.
The evening will begin with an update from the AOP’s clinical and regulatory team and will be followed by a peer review led by Johnson & Johnson Vision, which will consider the fact that despite ever increasing advances in technology, 50% of toric contact lens wearers cite poor vision as their reason for discontinuing contact lens wear. With the challenging demands of modern lifestyles, the benefits of satisfying our toric contact lens wearers have never been greater.
This peer review will encourage practitioners to think beyond the refractive requirements of their astigmatic patients, to consider how the design and material properties of the soft toric contact lenses they fit will influence their patients’ overall wearing experience, ensuring their patients enjoy wearing their toric contact lenses for the long term.
This session is for AOP members only, working as an optometrist in independent practice.
