Helping Patients See and Feel Better in Glasses

By Deborah Kotob, ABOM

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the basics of lens optics.
  2. List how lens performance is improved with lens enhancements such as premium AR.
  3. Explain the benefits of premium AR relative to visible light transmission (VLT) and high-index materials
  4. Explain how AR will make the patient see, look and feel better.

Course Description:

In this course, we will review corrective lens basics: who needs them, how they work, and the options by type, material, and lens enhancements. And, since AR is the number one choice for improving lens optics and visual comfort, we will delve into premium AR; how it enhances the vision experienced by the wearer while increasing lens longevity. Once we better understand how premium AR works and other lens enhancements, we will be more inclined to offer the best options to every patient because we want to deliver the best product. After all, who doesn't want more UV protection for their eyes in their everyday pair of lenses? Who doesn't want to see better when driving at night? Who doesn't appreciate higher contrast and detail and reduced eyestrain? The list goes on, so let's jump in and learn why patients deserve the best lenses and lens enhancements for the optimum visual experience.
