I remember my first contact lens clinic: I had been in the practice having started my pre-registration on the Monday, and Thursday that same week I had to cover the CLO’s clinic because they called in sick. How do you go from spending 1 hour per patient in university to 20-minute appointments on your first attempt in clinic?
I found I had to conduct my contact lens examinations confidently, efficiently, and fluently, whilst keeping my patient’s needs as the focus of my consultation. Chair time gets wasted when you are not listening to what they want and what their problems are, so always recommend and fit contact lenses based on patient requirements, and always focus on giving optimum comfort.
This contact lens book aims to give you a breakdown of what to perform in your contact lens routine, as well as what to do in the event you spot a complication.
