RGP Fitting For People Who Don't Fit RGPs
This lecture was filmed live at The Eyecare3000 Contact Lens and Anterior Eye Day - September 2010
Are hard lenses as difficult to fit as everyone in the 'RGP in-crowd' likes to make out? Do you have to know tonnes of maths and optics to fit them? Can you only fit them if you are an independent with long appointment times? No. We've all had times when we know we should fit them to a patient, but we just don't have the confidence to know where to start or what to do when things don't go to plan. With practical tips and some straight talking advice, this lecture will give you all the information you need to start fitting RGPs and solve the common fitting complications even if you've never touched one since pre-reg.
