Predictability of daily disposable contact lens ‘success’ – a practitioner’s guide

A group of experienced eye care practitioners was recently asked ‘what do practitioners expect from daily disposable contact lenses?’ The collective answer included specific lens features and benefits such as comfort, clear vision, positive effects on eye health, a handling tint, and easy-to use packaging, amongst others. The question put back to the group was, ‘what do these features and benefits (which control to the patient’s experience of their contact lenses) provide to the practitioner?’ The unanimous response was ‘predictability’ (Alcon, Practice Academy Consultant meeting, November 2010). This article describes how developments in daily disposable contact lenses have lead to increasing success and predictability of performance.
