Build and grow your specialty lens practice
Breakfast Talk: Thursday, January 19 | 7:30 – 7:55 AM
With Dr Murray Johnson and Dr John Samsssedi.
In today’s eye care environment, patients are looking for specialty services and products that go beyond what they might find at other practices. One key asset that can help you grow your patient base and stand out from the competition is specialty contact lenses.
In this session we will discuss practice management strategy on the subject of specialty contact lenses: how do I build a specialty lens practice or efficiently incorporate these lenses into my practice? How can technology become the catalyst in this transformation? What are best practice methods to differentiate yourself effectively?
The Future Of Specialty Lenses Is NOW
Breakout session: Thursday, January 19 | 1:30 – 2:30 PM
With Dr Melissa Barnett (Moderator), Dr Barry Leonard, Dr Sheila Morrison and Dr Chris Sindt.
Some 10-15 years ago there were only very few specialized practitioners fitting these lenses and a few laboratories producing them. Now, specialty lenses are much more ‘mainstream’ and multiple manufacturers offer very innovative designs and technologies to solve many different ocular conditions and diseases.
In this session we will discuss all the innovative technologies that are available already now and are transforming specialty lens fitting: Highly customizable scleral, orthoK, RGP and soft lenses; wavefront correction; centered and decentered multifocal optics; corneo-scleral orthoK; empirical fitting; corneo- scleral Profilometry and instrument-based fitting; and much more.
