According to a recent study, 25 percent more people globally are expected to become presbyopic by the year 2020. This is incredibly significant given that the pool of presbyopes is already estimated at more than one billion worldwide.
Is your practice ready?
Many eye care practitioners find that multifocal contact lenses can be hard to fit, and that success with patients is not always a guarantee. And given the limited daily disposable options for presbyopes, it has been hard to build out a robust multifocal practice for some eye care practitioners.
CooperVision is offering this free webinar on fitting multifocal patients with Proclear® 1 day multifocal contact lenses on May 30, 2012 at 9:00 pm EST. The webinar will introduce a new, simple to fit, daily disposable multifocal lens that you can use to build out your multifocal practice.
CooperVision’s Senior Manager of Clinical Research, Paul Chamberlain, will go over the basics of this exciting new product and answer all of your questions about this new contact lens option for your multifocal patients. Make sure to register here for your chance to learn about this innovative new contact lens and expand your practice.
