This month we begin with an editorial in the BCLA journal Contact Lens & Anterior Eye by FIACLE Dr Fabrizio Zeri and IACLE President Dr Shehzad Naroo on measures to adopt in contact lens practice in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Getting back to our quest to understand myopia control strategies better, we begin the issue with a systematic review of various interventions to slow myopia. Another review throws light on the much-debated topic of un-, under- and over-correction of myopia. Full text is available for both these reviews. The rising myopic epidemic has also evoked interest in measuring peripheral eye length, a topic we cover this month.
An Australian group studies the zone of clear single binocular vision in orthokeratology. Another study discusses the optical performance of multifocal contact lenses in terms of light distortion and its relationship to pupil size and shape.

Access the full text to read the results of this interesting study. And finally, we include a paper by Iranian researchers on the effects of corrective contact lenses on corneal microstructure.
