TFOS addresses contact lens discomfort

Article

The TFOS International Workshop on Contact Lens Discomfort report is available to help practitioners better understand the challenge with contact lens wear.

Boston-The Tear Film & Ocular Surface Society (TFOS; www.tearfilm.org) has organized the TFOS International Workshop on Contact Lens Discomfort (CLD) to address what may be the leading cause of patient dissatisfaction and contact lens dropout. The CLD Workshop reported its findings in a recent issue of Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science.

The TFOS International Workshop on Contact Lens Discomfort Report is freely available to scientists and clinicians worldwide. Complete or partial translations of the report will be offered in numerous languages.

The CLD Workshop took 18 months to complete and involved 79 experts from around the world. “Workshop participants used an evidence-based approach and a process of open communication, dialogue, and transparency in order to achieve a global consensus concerning multiple aspects of CLD,” said Mark Willcox, PhD, FBCLA, FAAO, MASM, professor, School of Optometry & Vision Science, University of New South Wales, and vice-chair of the Workshop.
