Historic & Modern Inspo to Scleral Lenses

Welcome to the Try Not 2 Blink Podcast, where Roya and Sheila explore the latest developments and expert insights in contact lenses. In this episode, they dive into the world of bandage contact lenses, discussing their uses, FDA-approved options, and pearls for successful use. They also examine the latest technology in this area and address potential risks.

Next, they introduce their guest, Dr. Kishan Patel, a rising star in contact lenses and resident at a prestigious institution. Dr. Patel shares his favorite episode from the TN2B archives, “Don’t Go The Extra Step,” with Dr. Stephanie Schumacher, and explains why he believes it’s essential listening for anyone in the field.

The conversation then turns to Dr. Patel’s expertise in fitting scleral lenses in Texas, his thoughts on whether a contact lens residency is worth pursuing, and tips for new residents. He also offers valuable tips for thriving in the industry and living well with the demands of this profession.
