Jones L, Walsh K. Future of optics: The ultimate contact lens. Optician 2020;262, 2783: 24-25 [ Show Abstract ]

Twenty years ago, two of the most prominent contact lens (CL) researchers in the world (Professors Brien Holden and Debbie Sweeney) predicted what the ultimate CL would look like moving forward. Sadly, Professor Holden, the most visionary CL researcher in the history of our profession, passed away in July 2015. When their article was written back in January 2000, the biggest news was the commercialisation of silicone hydrogel (SiHy) materials by Bausch + Lomb and CIBA-Vision just one year prior. Daily disposable lenses were in their relative infancy, having been launched in the mid-1990s, and there were around half the number of CL wearers globally compared to best estimates today (80 million vs 150 million). With the luxury of hindsight, it is now possible to assess how close their predictions were, while also attempting the same feat with a look forward to what the CL practitioner of today may expect to be fitting in 2040.

Jones L, Walsh K, Willcox M, Morgan P, Nichols J. Key considerations for contact lens practitioners during the coronavirus pandemic. Optician 2020;April, 19-25: [ Show Abstract ]

A novel coronavirus (CoV), the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), results in the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the rapid spread of cases of COVID-19 a pandemic on March 11, 2020. The global response to COVID-19 has resulted in substantial changes to business and social practices around the world. With concerns existing around the pandemic, many reports relating to how best limit the chance of infection have been shared via various news outlets and on social media, with significant amounts of misinformation and speculation being reported. Among these, recent rumours have circulated stating that contact lens wear is unsafe, that wearers of contact lenses are more at risk of developing COVID-19, that certain contact lens materials are ‘riskier’ than others and that contact lens wearers should immediately revert to spectacle wear to protect themselves. How true are these statements, and are they supported by evidence? Importantly, are contact lens wearers increasing their risk of contracting COVID-19 by wearing contact lenses? Furthermore, what are the ramifications of a potential reduction in the availability of local ophthalmic care for contact lens wearers during this pandemic?
