GOC Council news

Council discussed the impact of the Love Your Lenses campaign regarding safe contact lens use, which launched in March 2017. It welcomed that there was evidence from social media that contact lens wearers intended to change their behaviour as a result of the knowledge they gained from the campaign and that the campaign reached millions of people. Council encouraged stakeholders to get involved in promoting the 2018 Love Your Lenses awareness week and ongoing activities throughout the year. It welcomed plans to regularly update the Love Your Lenses website and communicate topical contact lens issues through social media. The GOC has recently published some top tips for the summer for contact lens wearers which can be found here.
