Matching New Lens Materials and Contact Lens Care Systems

New contact lens materials are being developed at a rapid pace providing our patients with improved eye health, lens comfort, and better vision. These new materials however may function best when matched to the most compatible lens care systems. At our practice we base our selection of lens care systems on outcomes of evidence based science. We utilize only those care systems that have undergone appropriate clinical evaluations and ultimate FDA approval specifically for use with the lens material that we have fit for our patient.

It is our responsibility as eye care practitioners to understand the science behind lens materials and care systems, to evaluate the merit and validity of the science presented, and ultimately prescribe the most appropriate lens care system for our patients on a case by case basis.
