This time we begin the issue with presbyopia. As monovision continues to divide opinions among practitioners, we review a paper that studies its impact on accommodation in early presbyopes. Another study checks the efficacy of a new, small aperture, presbyopia correcting contact lens.
A team from China investigates the much-debated association between long-term rigid lens wear and acquired blepharoptosis. Another paper on rigid lenses attempts to answer the age-old question in lens care: to rub or not to rub
Researchers in the US evaluate the efficacy of the fluorescein tear break-up time test in dry eye. Members of the British & Irish University & College Contact Lens Educators (BUCCLE) group investigate whether there are any benefits to gradual adaptation in soft daily disposable lenses. And finally, we include a systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating the association between obstructive sleep apnea and keratoconus.
