Menicon UK is hosting two seminars in June focused on fitting keratoconus patients with its Rose K2 XL semi-scleral contact lens.

The event will feature live fittings and a Q&A session with the inventor of the Rose K lens design, Dr Paul Rose.

Speaking about the contact lens, Dr Rose said: “The Rose K2 XL corneo-scleral lens provides much greater tear exchange and oxygen to the cornea than conventional scleral lenses but requires a different fitting philosophy. I will be explaining the subtleties involved in achieving a successful fit and why this design causes less corneal stress, avoiding for example, midday fogging and conjunctival prolapse.”

The first event will take place at Menicon’s headquarters in Northampton on 4 June at 6:30pm with a second date at an unconfirmed venue in London on 5 June at 6:30pm.

UK and export sales manager for Menicon’s speciality lens division, Gill Narramore, said: “We know from talking to optometrists and contact lens practitioners that fitting specialist lenses can be challenging. These workshops are designed to provide additional hints and tips for a smooth fitting.”
