Abstract

The primary objective of this supplement is to provide eye care practitioners (ECPs) with the latest research and experience on topics related to contact lens use and patient eye health. This section examines a variety of topics, including the challenges of keeping abreast of the scientific literature, recognizing data that are borne from well-designed studies, and keys to their implementation in clinical practice. Insights are also provided on how eye care is practiced in Asia, where regulations and patient perceptions result in care that is delivered much differently than in North America and Europe. The role of silicone hydrogel (SiHy) lenses in the clinical practice and how advances with this lens material may shape future lens prescribing are then reviewed. The final part examines the current thinking regarding corneal infiltrates, microbial keratitis (MK), and multipurpose solution (MPS)-related corneal staining, and how ECPs should approach these issues.
