Course Description

A patient can experience complications at any time during contact lens use. It is vital to determine if these complications can be self-limiting or if they can potentially lead to vision loss. Since contact lens complications can constitute a public health problem, this course covers quick, efficient assessment and treatment by an eye care professional (ECP).

Course Objectives

  • Identify numerous contact lens complications 
  • Recognize the physiological signs and symptoms of complications
  • Analyze the causes that lead to potential complications
  • Assess the best course of action to correct a complication
  • Determine appropriate follow-up care
  • Apply the proper treatment and discussions with the patient

Course Assessment

There is a 40-question test at the end of the course. A successful passing score of 80% is required on all ABO-NCLE continuing education courses in order to earn the designated number of credits. You will know your grade instantly after completing the course.
