Summary Every year since 2001, we have reported data from an international survey of contact lens prescribing in Contact Lens Spectrum. This work, which first started in the United Kingdom, has now recorded information about more than 250,000 contact lens fits in 54 countries. Our approach is simple. We ask contact lens prescribers (optometrists, opticians, or ophthalmologists, depending on the country) to record information about the first 10 contact lens fits that they perform after the start of the survey period each year. Each fit is then weighted to reflect the volume of fits performed by each practitioner. Information is collated at our two survey offices in Manchester, United Kingdom and Waterloo, Canada. For this report of contact lens prescribing in 2013, we report data for 21,673 lens fits in 31 markets around the world.
