CLToday Fitting Tip of the Month

March 2004

Contact Lenses Today® is edited by Dr. Joseph T. Barr and the staff of Contact Lens Spectrum.

Using Color Lenses for Fun
We realize that contact lens patients love options and now, with the availability of tinted lenses in many new designs and colors, the opportunity has never been greater. The biggest obstacle is getting practitioners to offer the option when discussing the availability of lenses. The diagnostic process is easy -- especially if the patient is already wearing a design that offers tinted lenses. To simplify the process, ask if the patient desires a dramatic or subtle change, decide on the preferred color choices and let your trained professional assistant have fun. Practitioners can quickly verify the fitting aspects and reinforce the compliance requirements. The enthusiasm that tinted lenses bring to a patient and a practice is contagious and everyone benefits.
