One of the British Contact Lens Association Council's newest members wants to aid in promoting the way in which members of her organisation are involved in impelling contact lenses related research as part of her position.
"I hope to help promote how BCLA members drive improvement, safety and medical, clinical and product research for the benefit of the end user – the public," new director Maxine Green has said, according to a news report on the British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) website.
Ms Green is one of four people to be freshly made BCLA directors.
She has also commented that she is hoping to carry on what she terms her organisation's "great work" as part of her recently-gained position.
She continued that she wanted to make sure that all people in the worlds of anterior eye as well as contact lenses has an understanding of what her organisation "stands for".
Expanding on this, she explained: "how it supports, leads, researches and communicates the wonderful benefits of contact lens wear."
Ms Green was given her fresh position last month, at a time of year when many contact lenses users are beginning to think about their summer holidays – unless they've been sensible enough to have booked them already.
However they have gone about making their holiday plans, though, users should always make sure that they know where they stand when it comes to contact lenses and their time away.
One independent contact lenses specialist, Keith Tempany, told users last September, in the wake of the summer holidays season's end: "We recommend people to take daily disposable lenses on their holiday."
Explaining the reasoning behind this piece of advice, Mr Tempany went on: "That way [people] don’t need to worry about taking solution on holiday, they just take a number of dailies."
He went on: "Hygiene is then less of an issue. You don’t need to worry about solution being opened or stored for a long time."
