DULUTH, Ga. — X-Cel Specialty Contacts has launched a new educational program — “Feed Your Mind” — created to educate ECPs about its latest orthokeratology design, the REMLens.
Tony Caporali, NCLE, X-Cel’s Director of Product Management and Lead Educator, and Cathy Smith, X-Cel’s Director of Sales, will provide a 45-minute course virtually or in-person, including a meal for all attendees. There are four courses from which practitioners can choose:
- Training and Certification (virtual course): This session provides a thorough review of the REMLens design and the functionality of each zone. Attendees will learn about designing a lens and the fitting and evaluation processes, and each will receive a REMLens certification.
- Basic Fitting (virtual course): This course covers how ECPs can utilize the online calculator, corneal topography, keratometry, and the patient’s prescription to design the REMLens. Caporali and Smith will go in-depth on the fitting process and lens evaluation, and they will offer tips for troubleshooting.
- Practice Management (virtual course): In this course, attendees will learn the best ways to market the REMLens in a practice and how to approach conversations with parents about myopia and available treatments. This will also cover basic staff training.
- Training & Patient Fitting (in-person course): Caporali will critically review the REMLens and support practitioners in fitting their first two to five patients, including the first morning follow-up. This course will also include information on insertion and removal training for patients and staff, and it will offer staff training for practice management.
