In this edition of Contact Lens Update, Lakshman Subbaraman explains the science behind this new way of thinking; Andrew Pucker reviews an article (Peng et al, 2015) describing an in vitro method of studying deposition that mimics tear film breakup during the blink, and Hendrik Walther‘s ARVO 2016 poster describes another novel in vitro eye-blink model.
