Lifecycle of the Progressive Lens Wearer

Tuesday 15th November 7pm Sydney Time

“My patient’s add has only gone up by 0.25D but they don’t like their progressive lenses anymore!”

Does this sound familiar? Be comforted to know you are not the only one to have a patient reject their progressive lenses with only a small add change whilst every other parameter had remained the same.

This 1 hour webinar is suitable for optometrists, dispensing opticians, optical dispensers and optical assistants where you will learn about the lifecycle of the progressive lens wearer from early presbyopia to late presbyopia, and how add changes impact the design of a progressive lens. By understanding the lifecycle of the presbyope, you will be better equipped to prescribe progressive lenses effectively to maximise your patient’s visual outcomes. Keynote speaker is ophthalmic physicist and 2022 International Optician of the Year, Grant Hannaford. 1 clinical CPD hour accreditation pending with OA and GOC.

On completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

1. Understand the impact of presbyopic refractive changes on progressive lens designs

2. Learn how to prescribe progressive lenses effectively in practice to enhance patient visual outcomes

3. Troubleshoot cases where a progressive lens has failed for a patient
