As clinicians, we know that some patients have been engaging in "flexible wear" of their lenses since contact lenses first hit the market... whether we wanted them to or not!

But it is in the past couple of decades that contact lens technology has finally made flexible wear a safe and realistic alternative for many patients.

In this ODwire.org Radio Episode, we speak with Dr. Scot Morris about trends in flexible contact lens wear, including:

  • How he identifies the candidates for flexible wear, and the typical lifestyle needs of these patients.

  • The latest technologies that have addressed issues of dryness and oxygen transmissibility that allow safe flexible wear.

  • We discuss the specific characteristics of AIR OPTIX® NIGHT & DAY® AQUA, and why Dr. Morris uses this particular lens for flex wear.
  • Some of the protocols he uses for flexible wear patients in his own practice.
