One Way or Another - Part 3 Poor Lens Care

More Resources

This is part 3 of a 3 part series on contact lens compliance. Each module consists of a 1000 word article and a 10 minute video.
The article in this final module presents research to quantify the risks of poor lens care. Reasons for poor lens care are explained. This could be development of bad habits and short cuts, forgetting what to do or being unaware of updated advice such as case cleaning. The article goes on to propose methods that can be used by the ECP and the wider practice team to identify the non-compliant behaviour and then reinforce the message that adherence to lens care regimes is important. Effective ways to modify patients’ behaviour are proposed, including communication, changing lens modality and/or lens care regime.
