    Course Description

    Soft Contact Lenses

    best understand the art of fitting soft contact lenses is to first understand
    the criteria of an optimal fitting scenario. Many techniques for lens
    evaluation have remained unchanged since the inception of hydrogel lenses.
    These evaluations include the characteristics of lens centration, corneal
    coverage, lens movement, tightness, physical comfort, visual acuity,
    and visual quality. When fitting hydrogels, a diagnostic lens fit will
    expedite and optimize the results. Selection of the diagnostic lens
    is based on material and parameter availability.

    A diagnostic
    lens should meet the requirements predetermined by the subjective and
    objective measures in the pre-fitting examination. There are literally
    hundreds of hydrogel lenses available. Using diagnostic lens sets allow
    for ease of fitting without creating an excessive inventory. The fitter
    should document the lens fitting characteristics that are consistent
    and reproducible. An optimal fit is well-positioned, centered, and moves
    well without hesitation (more on this later). A more precise method
    is to describe the specific characteristics in detail, such as lens
    position in primary, upward, and lateral gaze, decentration, tightness,
    and surface quality.
