Setting Up Your Staff For Success

A specialty contact lens practice is only as successful as a dedicated and knowledgeable staff. This module provides videos to assist in performing important tasks such as contact lens verification as well as patient education. A comprehensive “white paper” – which provides important information pertaining to caring for soft lenses, rigid gas permeable (GP) lenses, scleral lenses, and hybrid lenses – is intended to be a very good starting point in both understanding the available care regimens as well the information that would be invaluable in educating your contact lens-wearing patients.
