VISIONARY SCLERAL LENS WORKSHOP

Visionary successfully held their first in-house Scleral lens fitting workshop on October 6th. The unique and intimate workshop was specifically planned so that only two practitioners were in each instruction session. By the end of the day, Dr. Gloria Chiu, an SLS fellow and expert in the field of irregular cornea and ocular surface disease, had guided 16 Scleral lens fitting neophytes through the Scleral lens fit and evaluation process. John Belliveau, Visionary consultant and manufacturing expert held multiple “How To” sessions on lens insertion and removal as well as sharing care and handling tips. Special thanks to Aaron Elders at Optovue for contributing an OCT for use in the lens evaluation process.  Due to the success of the workshop, another workshop is planned for late February.
