Review of Modern Contact Lenses and the Management of Commonly Associated Complications
Primary care practitioners are often the first to evaluate patients with contact lens-related complications. Although many of these conditions require referral to an optometrist or ophthalmologist, familiarity with present-day contact lenses and their associated complications will ensure prompt diagnosis and management. This CPD module – comprising one long article with images – will give both primary care and general practitioners an overview of the various types of contact lenses, and a detailed account of complications – ranging from mild to sight-threatening. Conditions covered, among others, are contact lens-induced papillary conjunctivitis, asymptomatic infiltrative keratitis, contact lens-induced peripheral ulcer, and bacterial keratitis.
The Review of Modern Contact Lenses and the Management of Commonly Associated Complications CPD programme, if completed successfully, will enable healthcare practitioners to earn 3 (three) CPD points.
