prescribing in 2004
Summary This article presents our fourth annual survey of international contact lens prescribing trends. In 2004, we analyzed prescribing habits in 14 countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States. To each, we sent 1,000 surveys (or a pro-rata number in countries with less than 1,000 practitioners) to clinicians randomly selected from appropriate national registers.

The surveys elicited prospective information about contact lenses and care products that respondents prescribed to up to 10 patients fit after the study began. We employed a weighting system to better reflect the trends of busier practices.
