The Brien Holden Vision Institute has launched new Grading Scales that provide optometrists with an easy to use consulting room guide for the monitoring of common contact lens complications, and can be downloaded for free from the Brien Holden Vision Institute Academy website.
The Grading Scales are used as an in-practice reference tool by optometrists and provides a guide for determining the severity and progression of complications such as bulbar redness, limbal redness and corneal staining as well as descriptions and photographs of adverse effects associated with contact lens wear. The easy to use Grading Scales also allows optometrists to make consistent clinical management decisions.
The new Grading Scales can be downloaded for free from the Institute’s education website,academy.brienholdenvision.org. The Academy provides educational support to eye care personnel, optometry students and optometry schools.
