Welcome 2020, the year that signifies perfect vision!
We begin this symbolic year with the most burning issue of the new decade: myopia. There is a genuine and pressing need to understand the pathogenesis of myopia and to develop innovative interventions to arrest its progression, and eventually reduce the burden on the individual and the world economy. This month we focus on applications of contact lenses for myopia management and also take stock of how well they are integrated in practice.
‘The original papers presented in this special issue in Contact Lenses & Anterior Eye provide a current snapshot of the research themes of contact lens and anterior eye that are currently being pursued in this challenging and important area of myopia research,’ says the guest editor of this issue on ‘Myopia control with contact lenses’.
Here are some excerpts from the issue with links to the full text.
