Contact Lens Institute / Industry Info

CLI is committed to promoting safe and healthy contact lens wear by patients. As part of that commitment, CLI is currently funding a multi-year educational effort by the CDC.  In addition to CDC, the program’s Working Group includes representatives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), eye care providers, contact lens and lens care product manufacturers, professional organizations (AOA, AAO) and academic partners to help develop and evaluate important messaging about the healthy use of contact lenses.         

CLI is also committed to helping raise awareness about ethics guidelines within our industry and the ophthalmic community and, where necessary and appropriate, proactively seeking to clarify how the guidelines apply to our industry and to educate the ophthalmic community with respect to the guidelines.
