As the world continues to fight the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, patients look to their contact lens practitioners for eye health guidance. We begin this month’s issue with a review that discusses important considerations for contact lens practitioners.
Tear osmolarity has been reported as one of the best diagnostic tests for dry eye disease and contact lens wear is thought to influence tear osmolarity. We include a paper that assesses changes in tear osmolarity with daily disposable lenses. Another explores the utility of anterior corneal high-order aberrations in keratoconus classification.
A Turkish group studies the performance of new generation hybrid lenses. A Spanish team reviews advantages and disadvantages of small diameter scleral lenses. And finally, we include a paper that summarizes the impact of contact lenses and refractive surgeries on dry eye in an ageing population.
