When a contact lens practitioner wants to find out about the latest developments, where do they turn?
Textbooks are often out of date as soon as they are printed and the source of web-based information is sometimes unknown.
The Centre for Contact Lens Research (CCLR) of the University of Waterloo, Canada and the Brien Holden Vision Institute in Sydney, Australia, have been involved in the research and development of contact lenses and contact lens care products for over 30 years.
During that time there have been significant advances in contact lens materials, designs and solutions and our understanding of the impact of contact lenses on ocular physiology and the ocular surface has changed dramatically. Developments occur at a rapid pace – it is often difficult for clinicians, educators, researchers and students to keep up to date with changes.
