Abstract

As the literature has described the increasing penetration of DDSL into the contact lens market worldwide, this review aimed to describe the development of this modality as a solution to the problems experienced with other types of contact lenses. The advantages of DDSL in comparison to reusable lenses are discussed. The important role of the practitioner in prescribing for and managing patients using this lens type are also examined, in particular with respect to non-compliance. Problems with the use of this lens type and possible solutions are explored and new applications and future development in this field are described.
