Wyoming Optometrists were polled concerning contact lens preferences, advantages - disadvantages of different lens types, and brand preferences for gas permeable, and soft contact lenses. Overall group data were compiled and statistical comparisons were made between practitioners who had been in practice 11 years or greater to those who had been in practice 10 years of less. Results from our survey indicate that soft lenses will continue their popularity and rigid gas permeable lenses will become more popular over the next 10 years. We also found that the big names in contact lenses (Bausch and Lomb, Syntex, and Hydrocurve) control most of the contact lens market for the Wyoming practitioners responding to our survey.
