Science literatures have evolved from time to time in terms of specialization and target audience. Reports of new research findings are important to fuel novel assumptions and discoveries that can only be in existence through the publication of scientific Science journals. Although some Science Journals are multidisciplinary, most journals are highly specialized and they publish articles related to specific scientific fields.Science Journals are multidimensional Open Access gateways for the exploration of scientific discoveries and new research in the medical and other sciences. These journals are periodical publications intended to communicate with the scientific community to further the progress of mankind. Science Journals represent the collaborative efforts of many scientists and scholars from various disciplines.
In the last few decades, potential applications of Contact Lenses (CL) beyond their use to correct refractive error have been investigated, including extensive research towards their use for ocular drug delivery. At present, topical eye drops remain the most common method for treating ocular disease, accounting for 90% of all ophthalmic formulations. The use of CLs for ocular drug delivery overcomes several of the barriers that limit the effective use of eye drops. The placement of a CL on the cornea separates the tear film into pre-lens (exposed to the external environment) and post-lens (between the lens and cornea) compartments, with the post-lens compartment being of particular interest due to limited tear mixing and exchange. Another advantage to using a CL as a drug delivery platform is the ability to deliver drugs over extended time periods, which eliminates the need for multiple dosing. For ocular infections such as microbial keratitis, eye drop applications can be as frequent as applications every hour.
