Global Specialty Lens Symposium 2010

I just back from the 2010 Global Specialty Lens Symposium that was attended by over 350 contact lens specialist from over 20 countries. A significant portion of the conference was devoted to scleral contact lens fitting. I gave a lecture: Troubleshooting complications of scleral lenses used for ectasia. Dr. Christine Sindt, from the University of Iowa, and I conducted a scleral contact lens fitting workshop. One of the major topics of discussion was the future development of instrumentation that will allow us to more acurately measure the sclera, which may change the way we fit scleral contact lenses.
