Jamie Kuzniar, OD:
Hi, I'm Dr. Jamie Kuzniar. I'm in private practice in Detroit, Michigan, and I'm here at IKA on behalf of Bausch + Lomb I'm talking about the new feature called Bi-Elevation Partisan Lens.

So Bi-Elevation is a great new feature that's used to help with lens centration for our patients, help to reduce the lens fogging, improve wear time and comfort. The clinical pearl that I like to share during my lecture was really going back to our roots and looking at diagnostic fitting, looking at fluorescein patterns really assessing what is going on with the eye and with the lens of the patient.

So one pearl that I have that we've been finding is a lot of toricity for a patient is actually found within the vaulting chamber of the lens. So really looking at that mid-peripheral cornea, the limbus and incorporating that into your lens design into the Bi-Elevation has helped with our patients being fit a lot more efficiently and more successfully.
