Contact Lenses for Astigmatism: Free Webinar, 9 & 16 June 2021

Do you believe astigmatic contact lenses are less comfortable than spherical lenses and take longer to fit?
In a free webinar, titled Let’s Unmask A Stigma, optometrists Judy Kwan and Hirdesh Nair from Johnson & Johnson Vision will dispel the myths, by presenting on the benefits of prescribing astigmatic contact lenses – especially for low amounts of astigmatism.

Accredited for one clinical hour of CPD through Optometry Australia IoE Quality Assurance and 0.37G in New Zealand, the webinar will explore different astigmatic contact lens designs and the designs may impact clinical performance, visual comfort and physical ocular comfort. To support their presentation Ms Kwan, Mr Nair along with fellow guest optometrists will share case studies highlighting the benefits of prescribing for low amounts of astigmatism.
