Visser Contact Lenses is at the forefront of the development of contact lenses, and scleral lenses in particular. As such, our optometrists have conducted or assisted in a variety of studies.
Simone Visser received her PhD in 2016, and her doctorate research led to an entirely new scleral lens design. You can read her thesis here: Objective and subjective performance of scleral lenses and new advances in scleral lens technologies.
Below is an overview of publications of studies in which one of our optometrists was involved.
