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.
