BLOG: Wearing contact lenses – the key questions answered 

Why do people choose to wear contact lenses? Why do people choose to stop wearing contact lenses? They are the two questions every eye care professional would love to know the answer to – and the wait to find out may just be over.

An exclusive session to be held at BCLA UK will provide visitors with the opportunity to understand more about the current contact lens market in the UK.

The session, to be held by Shehzad Naroo (pictured), editor-in-chief of Contact Lens & Anterior Eye, will help eye care professionals ensure patients are directed to contact lenses that fit into their lifestyle – boosting both take-up rates and retention rates.
The workshop will provide you with four key learning objectives:
1. To understand the physiological effects of putting a contact lens on the ocular surface
2. To realise what steps can be taken by a clinician to ensure the ocular surface remains healthy in contact lens wear
3. To be able to manage contact lenses patients with a compromised ocular surface
4. To realise how better management of contact lens patients is better for the optical practice

BCLA UK will be split over two cities for the first time this year, with the first session being held on Monday, 4 June at Conference Aston in Birmingham and the second scheduled for Sunday, 10 June at IET Savoy in London.

CET points will be available across the programme.
