The article discusses research being done on the presence of and correlation between corneal and conjunctival staining in healthy young adults who averaged 26 years of age. It references a study published in the 2008 issue of "Eye Contact Lens." The researchers found that no statistically significant association could be demonstrated between staining and age, sex, refractive power, lens type worn, wearing modality and solution used.
