Systemic conditions can critically affect the successful wearing of contact lenses and should never be underestimated.
Optometrists embrace daily disposables but shun contact lenses for myopia control.
RGP lenses are minimally invasive, affordable and reversible.
Myopia is the most common refractive error being treated with orthokeratology.
How do they perform in a conventional lens design?
There are challenges associated with fitting contact lenses following penetrating keratoplasty.
Complex contact lens fitting involves trial and discovery, especially when there is corneal disease.
Tony Phillips shares three interesting contact lens cases with useful lessons to be learned.
Close collaboration with a lens laboratory resulted in a clever solution for a patient with pinguecula.
A fellow eye in a patient also turns out to be keratoconic, with the cone far enough below the visual axis so that it does not interfere with his vision or distort the keratometer mires.
This case demonstrates the importance of thorough after-care for contact lens patients before providing a renewed prescription.
Jillian Campbell describes a case in which miniscleral contact lenses provided an improved outcome over the previous GP lenses.
Fitting a gas permeable lens to an already compromised keratoconic eye is the optimal long-term outcome.
A patient who had lost vision in one eye after a penetrating eye injury presents for prosthetic lens fitting.
A scleral lens fitting for a presbyopic anaesthetist with Salzmann’s nodular degeneration took nearly two years to get to a point where I was happy.
