Primary Eyecare Network (PEN), a division of ABB OPTICAL GROUP, is offering a workshop on scleral lenses on Saturday, Feb. 9 from 8am to 1pm, at the Crowne Plaza Concord in Concord, CA. This hands-on, comprehensive workshop is designed to cover all bases of scleral lenses from fitting to billing and will be led by internationally recognized specialty lens authority, optometrist Melissa Barnett, OD, FAAO, FSLS, a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and the Scleral Lens Society. Participants will learn about the major disorders for which scleral lenses are prescribed, selection and follow-up care, troubleshooting and lens fit modifications, managing patients with chronic and complex eye disease, and appropriate billing and coding. The workshop will also include a scleral wet lab that will focus on patient fitting, insertion and removal training, and troubleshooting. The event is pending approval for two hours’ worth of continuing education credits from the Council on Optometric Practitioner Education (COPE).
