    Abstract

    Patterns of prescribing extended wear contact lenses in the UK were determined by mining through data gathered from annual contact lens fitting surveys conducted over the past 12 years. The increased rate of extended wear prescribing this century - which in 2007 had reached 7% and 19% of all soft lens new fits and refits, respectively - probably reflects the superior clinical performance of silicone hydrogel lenses for this purpose. © 2008 British Contact Lens Association.
