The AOCLE Pocket guide was launched in 2006 as a clinical reference tool for students and residents. The guide is distributed to all 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year students, residents, and CL faculty at all of the 24 North American Optometry schools. The guide compiles valuable information such as conversion charts, CL-related ICD codes, key case history questions, lens fitting characteristics, lens marking and FDA lens material classifications. The guide includes sections on soft, gas permeable and specialty contact lenses.
Presently in its 5th edition, the guide is now downloadable online.
