As contact lenses are being recommended for myopia control, we begin this month’s issue with a review that addresses a pertinent question: how safe is contact lens wear in children? And a Danish group reports on the association between low physical activity, higher use of screen devices and myopia.
Researchers from China compare the efficacy and safety of two regimens of high myopia–partial reduction orthokeratology in children. We include a study that assesses the risk factors associated with contamination of lens cases in OrthoK lens wearers. Another explores the possibility of classifying keratoconus location based on keratometry or pachymetry.
A Taiwanese group studies the effects of lysosomal deposition on the friction coefficient of hydrogel contact lenses. And finally, we include an editorial that looks at the impact of silicone hydrogel lenses since their introduction 20 years ago.
