The purpose of this thesis was to gain added exposure to RGP fittings, interpreting corneal topographies, ordering special parameter RGP's and filming the respective fitting characteristics. Ultimately, the film footage was to be incorporated into an interactive web learning module as an adjunct to Pacific University College of Optometry's second year Contact Lens course. Unfortunately, we encountered many problems transfering the large amount of video data as film footage to our web page. Many adjustments had to be made. RGP scanned photographs were used instead.
