“SCLERAL FITTING FROM A TO ZEN” to highlight full range of scleral applications

Alden Optical® announced today that it has initiated an email series of 12 case studies on contemporary scleral lens fitting. SCLERAL FITTING FROM A TO ZEN, edited by Susan J. Gromacki, OD, MS, FAAO, will include cases prepared by leading North American scleral lens fitters, demonstrate fitting techniques across a wide range of ocular conditions and feature Alden Optical’s highly acclaimed Zenlens scleral design. Zenlens, with 2 diameters (16 & 17mm) and 2 designs (prolate & oblate), was designed specifically to fit an extremely wide range of ocular conditions. The company hopes to increase interest in scleral fitting by showcasing the breadth and ease with which practitioners can utilize Zenlens. The series will be deployed across PentaVision’s substantial email database and will be archived on both the Contact Lens Spectrum and Alden Optical websites.
