Rare infections of the cornea (the clear dome covering the colored part of the eye), called microbial keratitis, are among the most serious complications related to contact lens wear Other complications that are commonly linked to contact lenses usually cause milder symptoms, or no symptoms at all 1, may resolve through temporarily not wearing contact lenses, or with eye.

For ongoing contact lens success, the importance of effective contact lens aftercare cannot be over-emphasised, particularly given the high number of people who cease to wear contact lenses (around 50 per cent in some studies). The main reasons cited for drop File Size: 1MB.

Dryness — Contact lens-related dryness is commonly encountered and is the most frequent reason for contact lens discontinuation. Dryness can be caused by poor tear film, oxygen deprivation, lens deposits, and contact lens solution incompatibility. Treatment includes artificial tears with and without contact lenses, topical cyclosporine %.

For new contact lens wearers, the initial three months post-fitting are the most important, as one study demonstrated that 25% of dropouts occur within the first 90 days of wear. 7 It goes without saying that the presence of comorbidities, such as diabetes and glaucoma, should dictate a specific and personalized follow-up schedule.

Contact Lens Background. The contact lens is a device worn in the eye to correct vision, although some people wear colored contact lens to enhance or change their eye color. The thin plastic lens floats on a film of tears directly over the cornea.

For some forms of eye disease, contact lenses correct vision better than conventional spectacles. Presbyopia is caused by a stiffening of the eye's lens, which gradually weakens the ability to focus on near objects.

Until recently, the most common treatment options for presbyopia were eyeglasses, contact lenses or laser vision corrective surgery.

Today, corneal inlays offer an alternative to wearing reading glasses. Care of the Contact Lens Patient: Barry A.
