This article, an edited version of the 2014 Charles F. Prentice Medal presentation, recounts my 50-year journey in research, from graduation in 1965 to PhD to 2015. The most important lessons I have learned are that great people, "Giants" as I call them, are generous of spirit, creative, insightful, sharing, and caring, and second, that collaboration is really the only way to do what I want to get done. I have been very fortunate to have worked with many outstanding people.

Language is important in the creation of a painful or non-painful context for fitting contact lenses. This article discusses two types of language use and demonstrates the consequent experience each creates for the patient. The authors also emphasize the importance of acceptance and utilization of responses offered by the patient to further the goals of a comfortable fitting experience. Finally, this article provides an example of a reliable and successful technique for rapidly inducing hypnosis for the purpose of obtaining a comfortable lens fitting.

Utilizing the principal diagnostic criterion of an absent or cloudy Meibomian gland secretion upon repeated expression, patients with Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) were selected to participate in a study of the efficacy of lid scrubs and massage in the treatment of MGD. Twenty-one patients with contact lens intolerance unrelated to lens, care system, or health factors were randomly assigned to treatment of one eye with common clinical therapy for MGD.
