Contact lens fitting allows us to put known optical principles to work in a creative way. It can be a fun challenge if we start with a healthy understanding of what data is needed to put our best foot forward.
While many patients and practitioners believe soft contacts are only for mild to moderate refractive errors, nothing could be further from the truth.
