Johnson & Johnson Vision would like to invite you to join a CET webinar on 23rd June to explore what role hydrogel contact lenses have in modern contact lens practice. This webinar will outline the key material requirements for modern soft contact lenses, and how these material characteristics can affect comfort and physiology. In doing so, we will consider if hydrogel lenses still have a place in current contact lens practice. Corneal oxygenation (and how this is predicted by laboratory measures such as Dk and Dk/t) will be described. The importance of material characteristics for wearer comfort will be explored. The presentation will also focus on an area which has received relatively little attention: the ocular inflammatory response to lens wear. Modern clinical research methods are giving new insights here, and this exciting new area will also be described.
