A “Healthy Soft CL habits” guide was launched in 2010 in which basic hygiene and lens care issues are illustrated with easy to follow instructions based on the latest literature. The guide offers an overview of hand washing, an overview of the care of soft CL (use of tap water, rub and rinse), cleaning and replacement of lens cases, no topping off of solutions and more. The guide is completely generic and is available in English, French and Spanish. The healthy habits can be reviewed with novice users or as a review of non-compliant patients.
The Association of Optometric Contact Lens Educators is committed to fostering the highest levels of education in the areas of cornea and contact lenses and supporting the faculty in these areas at each of the North American schools and colleges of optometry.
