It’s not too late to register to attend a free webinar on the application of extended depth of focus (EDOF) optics to contact lens designs.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday 17 June at 6.30pm (AEST), and is being hosted by SEED in conjunction with the Cornea & Contact Lens Society of Australia.
Titled Extended Depth of Focus Optics for CLs: The Philosophy and Technology, it will be presented by Professor Arthur Ho, Chief Scientist Innovation Officer at Brien Holden Vision Institute. Prof Ho has worked with students since the early 90s in areas such as understanding the optics of the eye, designing instrumentation, understanding the clinical aspects of the instrumentation and statistical analysis.
The webinar… will discuss EDOF optical technologies, how they differ from standard multifocal optics and the rationale for their application to presbyopia and myopia control
During this webinar, Prof Ho will discuss EDOF optical technologies, how they differ from standard multifocal optics and the rationale for their application to presbyopia and myopia control. Register Now.
Earn Up to Three CPD Points
The webinar will run for 60–90 minutes, including a Q&A session. It has been accredited for two CPD points with a further CPD point available for those who correctly answer the accompanying CPD assessment.
Why EDOF for CLs
Traditional soft multifocal contact lenses are designed to image distance, intermediate and near light on the retina at the same time. Many optical principles and designs have been used for presbyopic correction including aspheric optics, concentric optics and several alternating annular zones.
While EDOF optics have been successfully applied to IOL designs for some time to elongate depth of focus, until recently, the same technology had not been applied to contact lenses.
Now soft contact lenses with EDOF optics are available for commercial use, providing presbyopic patients with clearer vision over distance, intermediate and near distances. Additionally, this innovative technology has been shown to be an effective treatment for myopia control.
