This is the first module of a new series on contact lenses covering the core skills required to examine patients to assess their suitability for contact lenses, to fit a range of RGP and soft lenses and to conduct successful patient aftercare. Expert presenters discuss and demonstrate the techniques and a series of videos provide 'on eye' images, that a practitioner would see on the slit lamp. This programme is particularly suitable for those new or returning to contact lens fitting.

Topics: Contact lenses, Slit lamp, RGP, Rigid gas permeable, Soft, Tear assessment, Dry eye, Record keeping, Grading scales, Keratometry.
