Ciba Vision will continue on its journey to improve the eye health of the world"s population, the company has claimed.

It comes after the launch of a new study by researchers at the Centre for Contact Lens Research at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry in Canada, sponsored by Ciba Vision.

The report showed that patients who replaced their silicone hydrogel contact lenses according to the manufacturer recommended replacement frequency experienced better comfort and vision at the end of the day than non-compliant patients.

Dr Dwight Akerman, director of professional programs for Ciba Vision North America, said the company was proud to continue its global leadership in studying contact lens compliance issues as a way to help eye care professionals "maximise the comfort, vision quality and eye health" of their patients.

"Through Ciba Vision Academy for Eyecare Excellence educational programs, we will continue to teach eye care professionals about the important patient benefits of one month and one day replacement contact lenses," he stated.
