Kids, Teens & Contact Lenses
Contact lenses can make a big difference to a child's life and the motivating factors are similar to those for adults: cosmesis, sport, and improved visual function. But each of these factors is more likely to apply to a child than to an adult. The presentation will emphasise clinical relevance. In particular, throughout the talk the content will be related to the practitioner in the consulting room with the patient. Tips will be given for handling the child patient, and explaining the benefits of contact lenses and the essentials for safe wear to both child and parent.
