A Eurolens Research study has found contact lenses offer a better vision correction experience than spectacles when worn with face masks and improved adherence to mask use.

The study was conducted at the University of Manchester and published in Contact Lens and Anterior Eye, the British Contact Lens Association’s journal.

Carole Madonado-Codina, lead author of the study, said: ‘Even if patients love their spectacles, there is an opportunity for dual wear, swapping their frames for contact lenses when they’ll be wearing a mask. It could be a relatively straightforward approach with positive implications for multiple aspects of a person’s daily life.’
