1. If a patient has less than 1.00 D cylinder and ocular surface disease, he may actually see better with a more wettable spherical lens.
2. If you don’t have the exact combination needed but are close, send the patient home with what you have, then order the supply plus a box of trials for final approval. This saves the expense and delay of ordering trials and then boxes.
3. Set appropriate expectations ahead of time!
4. Don’t forget to screen for and treat ocular surface concerns for improved wettability, lens stability, and vision
