Now that we are a few weeks into the new year... how are those resolutions going? This is always an interesting time of year when we take a look at our accomplishments / failures of the previous year and try to see what we can do to grow and expand on those experiences. Whether those goals are of a personal or professional undertaking, it's always good to see how we can better ourselves.

Here at we have learned a lot over the last year and this has sparked many plans for 2014. Look to see design changes, expansion of our mobile platform to include the Android Market and taking advantage of new web based technology. We're also looking to offer continuing education courses and a few other surprises to be listed at a later date.

How about yourself?  Is this the year you add orthokeratology or scleral lenses to your practice? What about incorporating Myopia Control? Our industry also looks to expand as we can expect to see newer materials and solutions added to the market.  We wish you the very best in your new endeavors for the new year, and we hope you continue to see as resource that can help you reach your professional contact lens goals.

Google Introduces 'Smart' Contact Lenses

The age of 'smart' contact lenses is upon us. This week, Google announced they were testing a prototype for a contact lens that would measure glucose levels within the tears. Using a tiny wireless chip and a miniaturized glucose sensor, Google is on the verge of revolutionizing the way we view diabetes monitoring.

“We’re testing prototypes that can generate a reading once per second. We’re also investigating the potential for this to serve as an early warning for the wearer, so we’re exploring integrating tiny LED lights that could light up to indicate that glucose levels have crossed above or below certain thresholds.” Google said in its press release.

Global Specialty Lens Symposium 2014

Were you there?  With several hundred in attendance and about 30 different countries represented, this year’s Global Specialty Lens Symposium (GSLS) definitely lived up to its reputation. 

It is quite evident that the GSLS planning committee continues to meet the needs of the specialty lens fitting community.  This year was no different.  Pre-conference tracks included evidence based information on Myopia Control, tips for management of the Aging Eye, courses on Billing and Coding as well as fitting principles for Scleral Lenses.  In addition, attendees benefited from multiple CE approved “Breakout Sessions” as well as general sessions lead by clinical and scientific instructors from around the globe.
