Problem Solving for Uncommon Prescriptions
Diane Drake, LDO, ABOM, NCLEM
2 Hours Level III ABO

Some prescriptions don’t exactly fall into the average column. This course will introduce the participant to prescriptions that are not common, as well as prescriptions that may appear common, but lifestyles that require uncommon solutions. Discussions will include analyzing the prescriptions and the patient’s lifestyle and deciding on the visual correction that will best suit their needs. Included in this presentation will be ophthalmic optics. The last portion of this class will include group breakouts. Both spectacle and contact lens options will be included in this discussion.

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.

What Would You Do? Triaging the Ocular Emergency
Speaker: Mile Brujic, OD
2 Hours Level II NCLE

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. This course will take the attendee through the process of triaging those cases that are emergencies and proper protocols for those patients.
