Description

Introduction: The tear film is the host environment for the contact lens. Alterations in the normal tear film due to systemic disorders, chemicals, allergic reactions, and environmental factors can affect contact lens wear. In addition, both over the counter and prescription medications can affect the eye in a variety of ways. This two-hour course will explore the various systemic and anatomical disorders the contact lens practitioner might encounter in their practice.

Objectives

Objectives
Upon completion of the course the participant should be able to: identify the various systemic disorders and their potential impact on contact lens wear; recognize lid and corneal pathology and their potential influence on contact lens wear; conduct proper decision-making concerning contact lens complications; list three indications for a scleral contact lens; list three reasons for aqueous tear deficiency; name two potential ocular manifestations related to diabetes.
