C is for Compliance, but A is for Adherence: Helping contact lens wearers score an A


Talk Description

90% of contact lens wearers report hearing information from their practitioner, yet 80% of wearers are non-compliant.  In this presentation, we will discuss tools and skills to better communicate contact lens compliance along with the latest corneal infection risk factor data, from behaviours to immune defences with microbes taking advantage of both. Find out why we are campaigning to change the term compliance to adherence and what this might mean for your practice. 

Learning Objectives: 
  • Recognise the modifiable and non modifiable risk factors for contact lens associated corneal infection. 
  • Design strategies for communicating healthy contact lens wear
