Dominican Republic Trip

Posted on: December 18th, 2009 by G. D.

Dr. Don Sanders  of Medlens Innovations and I had the opportunity this month to visit the Laser Center of Santo Domingo (http://www.centrolaser.net/) and teach a workshop on scleral contact lens fitting.  We were able to successfully fit many patients.  They have excellent doctors and staff who are now trained and equipped to help patients with scleral contact lenses.
