Online peer review for independent practitioners: The lifestyle choice



Where: online

Interactive CPD points: 3

This peer review is delivered in partnership with the Vision team at Johnson & Johnson and is for AOP members working in independent practice.

The evening will begin with a short update from the AOP and will be followed by a peer review led by Johnson & Johnson MedTech that will encourage delegates to consider ways in which they can identify and maximise contact lens patient satisfaction, specifically in patients with demanding lifestyles and needs.

By working through patient examples, delegates will be encouraged to reflect on their current history taking and consider ways in which they can effectively elicit relevant information from the patient. Delegates will discuss investigative methods that they have available in practice and how patient behaviour and lifestyle choice can directly or indirectly impact ocular surface health, and therefore, influence contact lens wear.

With an ever-increasing variety of contact lenses available on the market, this interactive session will explore ways delegates can adapt a patient-centric approach to contact lens recommendation and management.

Please note: This peer review was delivered at 100% Optical 2024 so is unsuitable for delegates who attended the same session at that event.
