Successful management of the patient with irregular corneas with contact lenses can sometimes be a frustrating process for both the patient and the practitioner. In most cases, advanced contact lenses are not curing the underlying condition for why they are being used. For example, in ocular graft-versus-host disease, we use scleral lenses to protect the ocular surface. But, we are not changing the functioning of the injured Meibomian glands. So, we are just exchanging the surface where there are problems, from the cornea to the front surface of the lens. So, we are reliant on industry to provide us with constant research and development into better materials and coatings. This lecture covers many of the exciting advancements in materials.
