  • Hear from myopia experts Dr. Monica Jong, Professor Mark Bullimore, and Dr. Bruce Koffler as they discuss and debunk myopia misperceptions that you can take back the next day to augment the way you manage myopia in your practice. Hear the latest updates in the field and join in the discussion in an interactive session that includes myopia risk factors, the role of axial length in monitoring myopia, the relationship between light and near devices in myopia, and the role of contact lenses in children.

Track: Manufacturer Talk

Every child with myopia deserves to be protected. Every parent deserves to know. Learn how to simplify your approach to start treatment as quickly as possible with MiSight 1 day.


Join us to explore the ease of fit that the ™ Scleral lens offers, and how it can be combined with the simple and powerful xwave System from Ovitz to give your patients the clearest vision possible.

Track: Manufacturer Talk

TruForm Consultant George Mera will demonstrate using the online DreamLens portal to design lenses for new patients. He will also cover converting prior ortho-k patients to the DreamLens, a proven design for your myopic patients.


This study evaluated the optical characteristics and visual performance of a unique contact lens designed with a catenary curve-based extended depth of focus (EDOF) optical profile on mature presbyopes’ functional vision. The defocus curves generated indicated the study lens provided a full range of functional vision, providing better than 20/40 binocular vision with a 3.00D optical vergence demand. The catenary-curved based extended depth of focus lens provides a universal Add for emerging to mature presbyopes while maintaining clear distance vision.

The concept that all forms of contact lens wear are intrinsically inflammatory is discussed in the context of specialty lens fitting.

  • To understand the sub-clinical inflammatory nature of contact lens wear
  • To consider whether this sub-clinical inflammatory nature of contact lens wearis protective
  • To discover the implications of the sub-clinical inflammatory nature of contact lens wear for specialty lens fitting

In 2001, Professor Nathan Efron predicted the virtual demise of rigid (gas permeable) lenses over the next decade, whereby only about 1% of lenses fitted would be rigid lenses, and wrote their “obituary” in 2010. Indeed, rigid lens fitting in most countries has declined to less than 10% of all lens fits. The annual Contact Lens Spectrum International Contact Lens Prescribing Survey demonstrates that rigid lenses comprised about 10% of lens fittings overall from 2007-2017 although some countries reported much higher prescribing rates. However, there has been a resurgence of rigid lens fitting over the past three to four years (now at about 14% of overall lens fits in 2022 internationally) secondary to renewed interest in orthokeratology for controlling myopia progression, and advances in scleral and corneo-scleral lens options. Professor Bennett, Executive Director of the Gas Permeable Lens Institute, returns to debate Professor Efron once again on the benefits of gas permeable lenses in the contact lens practice and argues that they are not dead.

  • Learn about historical prescribing rates of rigid and soft contact lenses
  • Understand advances in rigid lenses that contribute to increased prescribing trends
  • Understand safety, limitations and indications for rigid and soft lenses for correction of refractive error
