Abstract: Purpose: To identify perceptions regarding teaching models applied to contact lenses. Methods: A transversal study in a readily accessible sample consisting of ophthalmologists (n=39) was performed by applying a questionnaire. Results: The sample consisted of 39 ophthalmologists, 51.3% males and 48.7% females. Regarding frequency prior to courses on contact lenses, 28.2% reported only one course; 25.6% two courses; 5.1% three courses; 2.6% five courses and 2.6% more than 10 courses. 23.1% never attended contact lens courses and 12.8% did not answer the questionnaire. On comparison of previous knowledge with that acquired by the offered course, 59.0% declared that they increased their knowledge a lot; 33.3% reported median increase; 2.6% little increase and 5.1% did not answer. As concerns training in contact lenses, 66.7% answered that they never had any training; 30.7% answered affirmatively and 2.6% did not answer. Among those who had training, 75% declared it was good; 16.7%, very good and 8.3%, regular. Conclusion: The offered teaching model for contact lenses was considered very valuable, increasing a great deal of knowledge in most subjects.
