Decontamination of contact devices – Prof John Lawrenson & Hugh Breakspear (10:34)
In 2010 the Department of Health published new recommendations on decontamination in relation to the risk of transmission of variant Creutzfedlt-Jakob Disease (vCJD). Consequently the College of Optometrists revised their guidance on the decontamination of contact devices. Professor John Lawrenson was involved in interpreting these recommendations and drafting the new College guidance. Here he speaks to Hugh Breakspear about the updated guidelines and what they mean for practising optometrists.
