Fit multifocal lenses for older and younger patients
Fit multifocal lenses for older and younger patientsBecoming an experienced multifocal contact lens fitter allows ODs to address visual needs for two patient populations: presbyopes (and emerging presbyopes) and myopic children. Knowing when to choose a soft multifocal vs. a gas permeable or specialty design will increase fitting success for the OD as well as patient satisfaction.
Sizing up daily disposable contact lensesMost ODs could list all the missing items in their contact lens supply line. They could construct a wish list of products they would like to see available in the future. On days when we find ourselves ransacking the contact lens trial room, ODs may think technology is moving too slowly. Perhaps it’s time for some needed perspective.
Preparing your patient for PRKPhotorefractive keratectomy (PRK) was the original excimer laser procedure approved by the FDA—and is still a safe and effective treatment of refractive errors. PRK has the benefits of no-flap creation; therefore, there is no risk of flap complications.
Developing contact lens technology at Global Contact Lens ForumAt its fourth annual gathering at Vision Expo East, the Global Contact Lens Forum addressed developing technologies with research and development (R&D) scientists, evidence-based eye care, and contact lens practice settings.
Upgrade your patients to new technologyWith much of the digital revolution occurring after 2008 and most contact lens technology developing well before it, there is an inherent design feature mismatch. The majority of the available contact lenses are not designed for how patients are using their eyes.

Q&A: Mary K. Mercado, digital marketing manager for CooperVision, Inc.I always had in my head that I was going to be a doctor.
