Lens trial drop-outs

Lens trial drop-outs.

The reasons:

There are two clear reasons why new contact lens patients drop-out, depending at what stage of their lens journey they are on. Watch the video to discover more.

More reasons:
Patients want support.

From the first teach to trial and aftercare, practices don't always offer optimum guidance and support to their new contact lens patients. And it’s often something easily fixed. Watch the video to discover more.
