The Vision Care Institute, LLC, (TVCI), a Johnson & Johnson Company, has made available to U.S. eyecare professionals a comprehensive grading scale for assessing severity and evaluating the progression of complications associated with contact lens wear. The Clinical Grading Scales App is free, compatible with the iPhone, and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store. It is based on the clinical assessment guide derived from the grading scales developed by Prof. Nathan Efron.
Also, TVCI recently achieved the milestone of 100,000 eyecare professionals attending courses throughout its network of 14 sites worldwide. Launched in 2004, TVCI was a first-of-its-kind learning destination and has remained the only institution of such magnitude sponsored by a vision care company.
