Members of the Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO) are concerned about the visual safety of Canadians in the work place environment, particularly in the industrial sector. Contact lenses are often utilized in the work place because they allow the wearer to see more clearly and efficiently, particularly if the wearer has issues with spectacle blur or visual field limitations. This policy addresses contact lens restrictions in the work place.
