C-50979. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Contact Lenses), Dispensing Opticians (Contact Lenses) and Contact Lens Opticians (Contact Lenses). There are many factors that affect the performance of a contact lens on the eye. Material properties such as modulus, wettability, coefficient of friction and oxygen transmission all affect the way the lens behaves on the eye. But which of these properties has the most effect on wearer comfort? This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Comfortable Patients (CET)

C-51645. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses) and Contact Lens Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses) only. Practitioners are well aware of the importance of comfort in successful contact lens wear. This course will discuss the communication, patient and environmental factors that can impact on this and what the practitioner can do to address them. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Common Systemic Diseases (CET)

C-51956. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for optometrists (Ocular Diseases, Standards of Practice) and dispensing opticians (Ocular Abnormalities, Standards of Practice) only. As Eye Care Practitioners we are taught to take a careful general medical history and note down medication taken by the patient. But how many of us consider the effect of that medication and the condition it is treating on the patient’s general health. In many cases the ECP may be the only health professional that the patient has consulted within a 12 month period. Having a basic understanding of common systemic conditions and their treatment allows ECPs to spot potential problems and refer them to the patient’s GP before they begin to adversely or permanently affect the patient’s health. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Contact Lens Aftercare (CET)

C-56331. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses), Dispensing Opticians (Standards of Practice, Communication, Contact Lenses) and Contact Lens Opticians (Contact Lenses, Communication). Contact lens aftercare provides an opportunity to review the progress in wear of a patient. It allows the practitioner to review the fit of the lens and the health of the eye and to review how well the lenses meet the patient’s expectations and requirements. It is also an ideal opportunity to reinforce important care messages and to make recommendations for new products or upgrades. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Dry Eye (CET)

C-56330. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Contact Lenses, Ocular Examination, Ocular Diseases), Dispensing Opticians (Contact Lenses, Ocular Abnormalities) and Contact Lens Opticians (Contact Lenses, Ocular Examination). Tear deficiencies are often described under the umbrella term of “dry eye”. This term encompasses a large number of conditions with a wide range of symptoms and varied aetiologies. In this course we will review the causes, the diagnosis and the treatment of a range of dry eye conditions. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Fundamentals of Presbyopia

C-52155. This course is accredited for non-interactive CET points for Optometrists and Contact Lens Opticians only. Changing demographics, modern attitudes, more active lifestyles and the fact that many new presbyopes are existing contact lens wearers are all driving growing demand for a spectacle-free solution to presbyopia. This course consists of two modules which covers the fundamentals of presbyopia and reviews the correction options available. They serve to help you appreciate how little patients know about presbyopia and the vision correction options available. This course should take approximately 40-50 minutes to complete. Please complete all modules to obtain 1 CET point, which is available to Optometrists and Contact Lens Opticians only.

Low Vision (CET)

C-51137. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Optical Appliances, Assessment of Visual Function) and Dispensing Opticians (Low Vision, Refractive Management) only. Eye care practitioners often see patients who have lower than normal visual acuity. Helping these patients has never been easier. As well as providing advice on lighting and contrast there is now a vast choice of readily-available hand magnifiers, stand magnifiers and electronic devices such as smartphones, e-readers and tablets that can be used to enlarge or enhance text and images. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Managing Contact Lens Complications (CET)

C-56329. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses, Ocular Diseases), Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses, Ocular Abnormalities) and Contact Lens Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses). Advances in modern contact lens materials and contact lens care solutions means that contact lens wear results in fewer serious contact lens complications than ever before. However, managing complications including discomfort, inflammation, hypoxia and deposition remains a core function of the contact lens practitioner. In this course we will review some of the most common complications and discuss how to manage them. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Managing the Monthly Contact Lens Wearer (CET)

C-56569. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for optometrists (Standards of Practice, Ocular Examination, Contact Lenses) and contact lens opticians (Standards of Practice, Ocular Examination, Communication, Contact Lenses) only. Whilst monthly contact lens wear in the UK is in decline, some patients will still prefer this option, whether from a financial or habitual point of view. Recent research shows that a significant proportion of current monthly wearers experience declining performance over the month, which presents a risk for drop out of contact lens wear. This online leaning module will review the science behind why monthly wearers may experience this decline in performance and what can be done to prevent it. This course is made up of six modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all six modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point. The assessment is spread throughout the modules.

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Contact Lenses, Communication), Dispensing Opticians (Contact Lenses, Communication) and Contact Lens Opticians (Contact Lenses, Communication). This VRICS excercise highlights different considerations for successful multifocal contact lens wear. Cases will encourage you to consider the ocular changes that occur with age and how these changes could impact on successful contact lens fitting. You will be given one attempt only at the assessment.
