Corneal Cross-Linking and Contact Lenses: The Decision-Making Process

Tuesday, December 20 | 8:00 pm Central
presented by Dr. John Gelles

The management of keratoconus is ever-evolving. This course aims to address the comprehensive visual needs of the keratoconus patient and the importance of both surgical procedures and contact lenses in a very simple 1,2,3 step process. It will review the management and treatment of patients with keratoconus with new and innovative therapies with an emphasis on crosslinking to stop progression and contact lenses to correct vision.

This activity, COPE Activity #125091, is accredited by COPE for continuing education for optometrists. COPE Course ID: 81083-TD

The GP Lens Institute has gratefully received commercial support from Contamac and Acuity Polymers, Inc. for this activity in the form of unrestricted educational grants.
