Medically Necessary Contact Lenses (ELC63005)

Contact lenses are often seen as an elective mode of vision correction, but there are many conditions for which contact lenses are considered a medical necessity for visual improvement. This elective course is meant to help the optometry student integrate the information presented on contact lenses and anterior segment disease. Information will be presented in a practical and clinically-orientation manner to aid the student in the decision making process as it relates to disease process review, patient evaluation, lens modality selection, fitting principles, follow-up goals, and monitoring disease conditions.
