    Brief Course Description

    Contact Lens Patient Selection

    The following subjects are covered in this course. Applying them in practice will
    increase the likelihood of a successful fit and a happy patient.

    The first contact person sets the tone for the examination and the aftercare.

    A survey should be used to collect pertinent information regarding health (systemic
    and ocular), occupation, hobbies, previous eyecare and/or correction, contact lens use (if
    any), and insurance coverage.

    The psychological and motivational aspects of contact lens wear are the most important
    factors in long-term success.

    A patient who is verbally interactive and able to reason is never too young for contact
    lenses. The limiting factor is the patient’s ability to understand the need to follow a
    maintenance schedule or to comply with a set wearing and care schedule without deviation.

    The cylinder sensitivity test determines the patient’s appreciation for uncorrected
    astigmatism in spectacles and contact lenses.

    By interrelating the patient’s needs with clinical experience and knowledge, the choice
    of contact lens design and material becomes streamlined.
