Seasonal ocular allergies can be bothersome for contact lens wearers, who may find that windborne pollen adheres to their lenses, extending exposure time. CORE BioScience developed a device custom-designed to expose contact lenses to pollen particles in order to further our understanding of the impact of seasonal allergies on contact lens wear.
