Global contact lens manufacturer CooperVision recently put a call for proposals for its 4th Annual Science and Technology (S&T) Awards Program.
The S&T program aims to form partnerships between award recipients and CooperVision scientists to explore new areas of advancement in contact lens technology. This year's key focus areas for research proposals include strategies to improve contact lens comfort, insights into the retinal response from optical defocus, and technologies to explore using contact lenses for applications beyond conventional vision correction.
The program is open to researchers around the world — those interested must submit a letter of intent by May 30, 2016.
