The objective of this research project was to study and photodocument the fitting of the Silsight contact lens. Criteria for the photodocumentation were to be supplied by the sponsoring company, Dow Corning Ophthalmics. It was also our intent to investigate corneal changes which may have been incurred by the contact lens user study. At the time this project was begun, the Silsight contact lens was FDA approved and available to the general public.
