Tips for Working with Higher Powered Spectacle Lenses

Speaker: Laurie Pierce, LDO, ABOM, NCLEC
2 Hours Level II ABO

As frame fashions increase in size we must review the optical concepts that ensue. The majority of optical aberrations occur in the periphery of the lens. When we dispense smaller eye sizes, this is not as urgent. However, as eye sizes increase, so do optical aberrations. This course will focus on the major optical aberrations and prismatic effects that occur in larger lenses, and their optical solutions. In addition, we will discuss the optics of higher powered lenses, the optical problems, and the solutions.

Opticians are challenged with a number of clinical scenarios on a day to day basis where they have to determine the urgency of the case and determine proper triaging protocols.
