Episode 36: How to Improve Patients' CL Comfort

by Dave Kading, OD, Mile Brujic, OD

Mile Brujic, OD, and David Kading, OD, discuss the challenge of evaluating the comfort of patients’ contact lens-wearing experience in the context of dry eye disease. It is important not to silo patients and instead consider both their individual CL needs and ocular surface health. New lens materials and modalities can enhance comfort; however, performing a detailed ocular surface examination is key. Include staining, evaluate the TBUT, use point-of-care tests, check for blepharitis, and be sure to flip the lids!
