The first half of the course will provide an overview of corneal topography and review a few cases that utilize various contact lens options available for keratoconus patients. The second half of the course will start with an overview of myopia progression and the current management methods, with a focus on orthokeratology. It will also include two cases of orthokeratology fittings in patients with high astigmatism.
• By the end of this lecture, attendees will be able to understand the design of orthokeratology lenses.
• By the end of this lecture, attendees will be able to differentiate an acceptable orthokeratology outcome from a poor one.
• By the end of this lecture, attendees will be able to identify when to use a toric versus a spherical lens when fitting a new patient in orthokeratology lenses.
• The attendee will be better able to analyze corneal topography data and understand when to select between corneal vs. scleral gas permeable lenses.
• The attendee will be able to identify the type of specialty contact lens a keratoconus patient may benefit from.
• The attendee will be more comfortable with assessing and managing specialty lenses for
• keratoconus patients with ancillary testing already available in the office
