Description

Introduction: The incredible advances we’ve seen from the contact lens industry have created a heightened awareness and even a buzz about contact lenses. Patients perceive them as being healthier. They may even assume that now they can push the limits of contact lens wear without the fear of consequences they had in the past, and that’s just not true. We still have just as many CL complications as we did with HEMA lenses! The goal is not to run down every detail of every complication; But to identify some of the common causes of a red eye and their related symptoms and to offer increased confidence in how to respond. If a patient walks into your optical with some kind of issue, I want you to know what questions to ask and what to look for to help determine if they need to be seen immediately. If your doctor’s not there, do they need to be sent elsewhere right away, worked in tomorrow, or will the next available slot be good enough?
