We begin this issue with a paper that investigates the time course of the onset and recovery of axial length changes in response to imposed defocus and then cover diverse topics from the contact lens world.
An Australian team determines the effect of water education in the form of “no-water” lens case stickers on water-contact behaviours and storage case contamination. A Chinese group compares optical quality in patients with dry eye before and after treatment. Another study attempts to find out if all dry eye symptoms in contact lens wear are induced by contact lenses.
A Spanish team describes characteristics and habits of lens wearers purchasing lens over internet. A study investigates efficacy of pre-conditioning lens cases on bacterial biofilm formation and removal. And finally, we include a paper that examines the effect of sodium fluorescein on anterior eye surface measurements.
