Contact Lens Practice

Contact Lens Practice - CPD accredited course at City University London

The contact lenses are part of initial qualification obtained by optometrist. It is important to be aware of the potential problems with short-term and long-term changes.

The module enables optometrists to effectively manage patients in the community or hospital setting.

The module also provides an in-depth understanding of the specialist contact lens fitting such as regular and irregular astigmatism, presbyopia, myopia control and orthokeratology, and additionally the complications caused by contact lens (CL) wear.

· You should normally be a UK registered optometrist satisfying all legal requirements to be eligible to practise in the UK.
