Authors of a contact lens care solution research paper have received the 2015 J Lloyd Hewett Award for the most meritorious paper published in Clinical and Experimental Optometry in the past three years.

The authors Dr Camus Choy, Professor Pauline Cho and Dr Maureen Boost from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University have been recognised for their 2012 paper ‘Cytotoxicity and effects on metabolism of contact lens care solutions on human corneal epithelium cells’.

The editorial board of Clinical and Experimental Optometry established the award in 1980 as a tribute to Sydney optometrist J Lloyd Hewett, who was editor of the journal from 1962 to 1979, and a leading practitioner and clinical teacher.
