With the launch of Johnson & Johnson Visions photochromic contact lens, the first to adapt to changing light conditions, the future of contact lens technology is looking bright. We take a look at how the field has developed in recent years and where the next breakthroughs may lie.

Also, we speak to Dr Loubna Bouarfa, CEO and founder of Cambridge-based healthcare AI company OKRA Technologies, to find out more about how environmental and health data can help pharmaceutical companies determine when and where to deploy their medications, round up the state of medical device regulation around the world, and examine the fallout from illegally marketed devices to see what can be done to stop them harming patients.

Plus, we take a look at the ways that manufacturers can demonstrate eco-conscious design principles in a product’s design, development and production, and explore the state of play for the medical devices used for blood management and transfusion.

And, as always, we round up the latest news from the medical device industry, and get comment and analysis from GlobalData’s healthcare analysts.
