Edward S. Bennett, O.D., M.S.Ed.
Assistant Dean for Student Services
and Alumni Relations
Dr. Bennett is actively involved in the clinical investigation of contact lens designs, materials and care regimens.
Over the past twenty-five years he and his co-workers have performed more than 100 contact lens research studies, most of which have been supported by contact lens industry. Specifically, his area of interest has been gas permeable contact lenses. He is especially interested in evaluating different types of rigid contact lens bifocal designs, the effect of different variables of initial comfort of gas permeable lenses, and the use of GP lenses to reduce myopia with overnight wear (i.e., orthokeratology or corneal reshaping). He has authored or edited ten contact lens texts and two national board examination review books.
