Estimation of corneal endothelial pump function in long-term contact lens wearers. (1/407)

PURPOSE: To study the effects of long-term contact lens wear on morphologic and physiologic properties of corneal endothelial cells. METHODS: The endothelial permeability to fluorescein and the rate of corneal deswelling from hypoxia-induced edema were measured in 20 long-term (mean, 17+/-9 years; range, 5-33 years) contact lens wearers and 20 age-matched control subjects. From these data, the relative endothelial pump rate in each subject was estimated, based on the pump-leak hypothesis of corneal hydration control. Corneal autofluorescence and the aqueous humor flow rate were determined by fluorescein fluorophotometry. Images of corneal endothelial cells were recorded by using specular microscopy, and morphologic indices (cell density, coefficient of variation of cell area, percentage of hexagonal cells, and skewness) were determined. RESULTS: No statistically significant differences were found between the contact lens and control groups in endothelial permeability, corneal deswelling, relative endothelial pump rate ([mean +/- SD] 1.07+/-0.33 relative pump units versus 1.01+/-0.25 relative pump units; contact lens versus control; P = 0.57), and endothelial cell density. Contact lens wearers had a significantly higher aqueous humor flow rate (3.57+/-1.03 microl/min versus 2.77+/-0.51 microl/min; P = 0.005), coefficient of variation of cell area (0.35+/-0.09 versus 0.28+/-0.04; P = 0.006), and corneal autofluorescence (3.1+/-0.6 ng/ml versus 2.3+/-0.3 ng/ml fluorescein equivalents; P < 0.001) than did non-contact lens wearers. CONCLUSIONS: Despite the known effects of long-term contact lens wear on corneal endothelial morphometry, no effect on endothelial function was found.  (+info)

Contact lens-induced infection--a new model of Candida albicans keratitis. (2/407)

PURPOSE: A model of experimental keratomycosis was established that mimics human disease in which the only fungi present are those that are actively growing within the cornea. METHODS: Dutch-belted rabbits received a subconjunctival injection of triamcinolone acetonide to one eye. One day later the epithelium was removed from the central cornea and a standardized inoculum of Candida albicans blastoconidia was placed on the corneal surface and covered with a contact lens. The lids were closed with a lateral tarsorrhaphy. After 24 hours, the lid sutures and contact lens were removed. Five days later the animals were killed, and their corneas were subjected to separate isolate recovery and histology studies. A group of similarly infected rabbits without corticosteroid injection served as controls. RESULTS: Both groups developed invasive corneal disease. Although isolate recovery was not significantly different from corticosteroid-treated rabbits compared with controls, fungal biomass was increased. Hyphal invasion was limited to the anterior cornea in control eyes, but penetrated deep stroma in most of the corticosteroid-treated rabbits. CONCLUSIONS: Invasive corneal disease can be established with a surface inoculum. Corticosteroid administration increased corneal penetration of hyphae. Quantitative isolate recovery is not a reliable measure of the fungal load within the cornea.  (+info)

Clinical estimation of corneal endothelial pump function. (3/407)

PURPOSE: To develop a technique to estimate the corneal endothelial pump rate in human subjects. METHODS: Corneal hydration control is thought to be maintained by a pump-leak mechanism whereby the leak of solutes and fluid across the endothelial barrier into the stroma is, in the steady state, exactly balanced by the pumping of solutes and passive fluid transfer across the endothelium to the aqueous humor. Overall corneal hydration control can be measured from the rate at which the swollen cornea thins (deswells), and a measure of the leak can be obtained simultaneously from the endothelial permeability to fluorescein. From the pump-leak hypothesis, the deswelling rate is directly proportional to the pump rate and inversely proportional to the leak rate. The relative endothelial pump rate can be estimated as the product of the normalized deswelling rate and the normalized endothelial permeability. This procedure was used to obtain the relative endothelial pump rate in 41 patients with diabetes mellitus, 12 patients with long-term corneal transplants, 20 long-term wearers of contact lenses, and 19 normal volunteer subjects after the short-term administration of topical dorzolamide. RESULTS: The relative endothelial pump rate did not differ significantly from that of control subjects in diabetics, in contact lens wearers, and after dorzolamide administration, but was markedly decreased in the patients with corneal transplants, despite a reduction in permeability (reduced leak). CONCLUSIONS: This method allows the estimation of both the barrier and pump arms of corneal endothelial function and should be useful in the investigation of causes and mechanisms of functional endothelial insufficiency.  (+info)

Rehabilitation of children with cataracts. (4/407)

Over a period of 10 years, 160 children with cataracts underwent operation at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, Memphis. The surgical, optical, and psychosocial rehabilitation of these patients was analyzed and studied. The optical rehabilitation included patients with glasses, intraocular lens implants, epikeratophakia, and contact lenses. Seventy three of these patients were chosen at random and reevaluated as to visual outcome, and 46 were subjected to a psychosocial test to evaluate their quality of life and their rehabilitation. Eighteen of these were also given a psychosocial test to evaluate the quality of life enjoyed by these children at an older age following treatment for the cataract. Surgical, optical, and psychosocial rehabilitation of such children is also discussed. This is the first report of the psychological evaluation of such children. The further needs of these children as they approach adulthood are discussed in detail.  (+info)

Rapid improvement in the acuity of infants after visual input. (5/407)

Visual acuity was assessed in 28 human infants who had been deprived of all patterned visual input by cataracts in one or both eyes until they were treated at 1 week to 9 months of age. Immediately after treatment, acuity was no better than that of normal newborns. Acuity improved significantly over the next month, with some improvement apparent after as little as 1 hour of visual input. Unlike findings at older ages, the pattern of results was the same for eyes treated for monocular and for binocular deprivation. The results indicate that patterned visual input is necessary for the postnatal improvement of human visual acuity and that the onset of such input initiates rapid functional development.  (+info)

Measurement of post-lens tear thickness. (6/407)

PURPOSE: A method to measure the tear film beneath a soft contact lens, referred to as post-lens tear thickness (PLTT), would have many applications to contact lens research. In this study a noninvasive technique for measuring the PLTT is presented. METHODS: The feasibility of measuring the tear layer by optical pachometry was first assessed using a model eye. The baseline corneal thickness (B) of both eyes of 21 subjects was measured, etafilcon-A ionic disposable soft contact lenses (58% water) were inserted, and the total thickness (T) of the cornea, contact lens, and PLTT were measured. After the pachometry readings the lenses were removed and their center thickness (C) determined. The PLTT was calculated using the equation: PLTT = T-(B+C). Two sets of measurements of T were performed at 15 and 25 minutes after lens insertion. The entire procedure was repeated at a second visit. RESULTS: The pachometry measurements of the small aqueous reservoir between the model eye and the lens closely matched those obtained by direct microscopic measurement. For human PLTT, the mean values (and 95% confidence intervals) for right eyes on visits 1 and 2 were 11 (8, 13) and 12 (10, 15) microm, respectively, and for left eyes were 12 (10, 15) and 11 microm (8, 14) microm, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: It is possible to measure the post-lens tear thickness using optical pachometry. The variability between repeated measurements suggests that with careful sample size planning, the technique is sufficiently precise to be useful in group assessments of PLTT.  (+info)

Isoenzyme patterns and phylogenetic relationships in Acanthamoeba spp. isolated from contact lens containers in Korea. (7/407)

In order to refer to the basic information regarding the identification of isolates obtained from a contact lens container in Korea, the isoelectric focusing gel electrophoresis was employed to compare the isoenzyme band patterns among Acanthamoeba spp. including eight isolates and the simple pairwise dissimilarity analysis was carried out. For an alkaline phosphate development, isolate 7 and Acanthamoeba polyphaga showed homologous band patterns, and isolates 1, 2, and 3 showed the same patterns. For lactate dehydrogenase, similar patterns were observed in isolates 2 and 3. Isolates 3 and 5 showed homologous band patterns for malate dehydrogenase and glucose phosphate isomerase. For hexokinase, isolates 4, 7, and A, hatchetti showed the same band patterns. In others, a considerable number of interstrain polymorphisms was observed in nine isoenzyme band patterns. In Acanthamoeba group II, genetic distances among isolates 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 ranged from 0.104 to 0.200. In comparison to A. castellanii, A. hatchetti, and A. polyphaga, genetic distances of isolates 7 and 8 were 0.254 and 0.219, respectively. In Acanthamoeba group III, including A. culbertsoni, A. healyi, and A. royreba, isolate 6 had genetic distances which ranged from 0.314 to 0.336. Finally, when comparing to the six reference Acanthamoeba, it was possible to classify isolates 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as genetically close-related species and as independent species group. Furthermore, isolates 6, 7 and 8 were identified as independent species as well.  (+info)

Clinical course of hurricane keratopathy. (8/407)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: "Hurricane keratopathy" is the name given to the whorl pattern, highlighted with fluorescein, seen in situations where corneal epithelial cell turnover is exaggerated. Although the condition is well described, follow up data on patients with this condition and its sequelae have only been reported in corneal graft patients. The aim was to study the clinical course of hurricane keratopathy in corneal graft patients and contact lens wearers, and to document any sequelae of this condition. METHODS: Hurricane keratopathy, occurring in 20 eyes with corneal grafts and 16 eyes (six bilateral) wearing rigid gas permeable contact lenses, was studied and followed. The occurrence, pattern, progress, resolution, and residual effects of the whorls were noted. RESULTS: Hurricane keratopathy was noted to occur in grafts as previously reported and also in contact lens wearers, which has hitherto not been reported. The whorls usually appeared within the first 3 weeks postoperatively and persisted up to 4 months. A small epithelial defect (11.1%), heaped epithelial cells (5.6%), and a nebular grade opacity (2.8%), were the only significant sequelae noted at the epicentre of the whorls. Resolution occurred from the periphery towards the centre of the cornea. CONCLUSIONS: The whorl pattern is sustained as long as the stimulus for increased cell turnover is maintained. Once this stimulus is eliminated, the pattern tends to resolve spontaneously.  (+info)

Gas permeable contact lenses may not be as well known as the soft type, but for many conditions these lenses can be ideal when soft lenses will not work or are not preferred. They may also be called rigid gas permeable contact lenses or even at times oxygen permeable lenses. A common misunderstanding is that many people think these lenses are the hard ones first available a long time ago, and that is not the case. Original lenses did not allow oxygen through the barrier, but this new type first developed in the 1970s does.. There are some benefits that gas permeable contact lenses offer over the soft variety. Better results can usually be seen for many conditions, and this is true with toric contact lenses as well. GP lenses are very durable and meant to last longer, so while they may cost more initially they are actually cheaper over time. The rigid lenses have a higher resistance to deposits on the lens, so there is nothing to cause discomfort while wearing them. Cleaning is very simple, and ...

Purpose : Corneal epithelial dryness or damage is more concerned in complicated proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) surgery if using noncontact wide-angle viewing system. We designed a rigid contact lens to be used during surgery and performed a prospective, randomized, comparative study to analyze its protection of corneal epithelia.. Methods : A thin and lightweight rigid contact lens was designed and constructed. The impact of the contact lens on the visualized fundus range was evaluated using a concrete eye model. Eighty two eyes of 74 patients with severe PDR were randomized to either the contact lens (CL) group, viscoelastic group (VIS), or balanced salt solution (BSS) group. Surgery time and corneal fluorescein staining score (FSS) postoperatively were mainly measured using one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) test.. Results : In the eye model, a larger area of fundus was visualized with the use of our contact lens under the 128D (,80°) and 60D (45°) Resight lens compared to the ...

With the evolution of different types of contact lenses, a large number of options are now available for the existing as well as new contact lens users. The soft contact lens provides several advantages over the conventional rigid gas permeable contact lens. These lenses are easy to adjust and are made up of soft and flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through the cornea. Soft contact lenses also render high comfort as compared to rigid gas permeable contact lenses. Owing to these factors, soft contact lenses are estimated to record highest growth rate during the forecast period. On the other hand rigid gas permeable lenses are durable, resistant to deposit buildup and are easy to handle. However, the demand for the same is declining due to increasing preference for various kinds of soft contact lenses such as daily disposable, extended wear and weekly replacement contact lenses. Daily disposable and extended wear soft contact lenses markets represent two of the largest markets of 2012. ...

A second corneal contact lens of the pair also a concave posterior surface and a convex anterior surface. The anterior surface of the second lens is formed with a power curve including a circular intermediate vision correction zone and an annular near vision correction zone contiguous with the respective intermediate vision correction zone. The near vision correction zone is concentric or coaxial with the intermediate vision correction zone of the second lens. The intermediate vision correction zone of the first lens and the distance
For Use: Before First Use: Rinse lens case and caps thoroughly with fresh contact lens disinfecting solution. Chemical Disinfection: Clean and rinse contact lenses as directed by eye care professional. Place contact lenses into their correct chamber of the contact lens case, fill with fresh contact lens disinfecting solution, and tightly close the caps. Leave the contact lenses in the lens case according to the directions provided with your contact lens disinfecting solution. Important: If a contact lens chamber appears to be dry following the disinfection cycle, do not try to remove the contact lens. Refill the chamber with fresh saline or contact lens disinfecting solution, replace lens cap tightly and allow 20-40 minutes for the contact lens to rehydrate. If a lens chamber continue to dry out, the case should no longer be used and should be replaced. For Good Contact Lens Care: After each use, rinse both lens case and caps with the fresh contact lens disinfecting solution used in your contact ...
Purpose: To calibrate the axial and lateral dimensions of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) images using rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses. To quantify the physical and optical characteristics of RGP lenses using cross sectional OCT imaging.. Methods: The parameters of 5 spherical RGP lenses of the same design, index of refraction = 1.433, were manually verified. The posterior side of each lens was mounted on a flat surface and imaged using the Heidelberg Spectralis SDOCT system with Anterior Segment Module (Heidelberg Engineering, Carlsbad, CA). The 30 deg image included the entire cross section of the central lens and extended beyond the lens boundaries to included locations of the mounting platform only, which was used as an axial reference. The lateral and axial pixel dimensions were calculated and divided by the known diameter of the contact lens and center thickness. The index of refraction of the lens material was used to compensate for the thickness changes ...
Purpose: Discontinuation from contact lens wear has been identified as a contributing factor in the lack of growth of contact lens use in Europe. The purpose of this study was to determine the proportion of lapsed contact lens wearers that can be refitted successfully with contact lenses and to evaluate the reasons for discontinuation from contact lens wear. Methods: This was a multi-site clinical study involving 15 UK investigators and 236 lapsed contact lens wearers who had previously tried contact lenses and discontinued. The reasons for discontinuation were assessed by subjects, who were then refitted with contact lenses. Investigators subsequently evaluated factors associated with their initial discontinuation. Short-term success was defined as the successful completion of 1 month of contact lens wear with absence of complications that would prevent further wear. Subjects were interviewed by telephone 6 months after being refitted to determine whether they were still wearing contact lenses. ...

These conditions can be loosely grouped into three categories: hypoxia, an oxygen deficiency condition; allergic reactions and infections; and dry eye. Both soft and hard contact lens wearers can be affected by any of these conditions. Our doctors have significant experience with diseases affecting contact lens wearers.

Brand new article on our personal ...
For many years, the contact lens field had focused on safety associated with contact lens wear-and for good reason, given the lack of understanding of the risk factors and etiology of serious complications such as microbial keratitis. However, as knowledge came to light on these complications through the 1980s and 1990s, it allowed for practitioners to become more comfortable managing these complications, along with the introduction of products that helped reduce or prevent some of these problems. It was during this time, beginning in the mid-1980s, that the field itself became cognizant of the issues associated with comfort, or discomfort, during contact lens wear. Since that time, we have witnessed the field (and industry) shift its attention toward understanding the issue of contact lens discomfort (CLD). Contact lens discomfort is a substantial and burdensome problem experienced frequently by contact lens wearers. It is well established that most contact lens wearers experience CLD, at least ...

Microbial corneal infection is the most serious and "most common vision threatening" complication of contact lens wear, which is believed to be strongly associated with contact lens cases. Such infections "are being increasingly recognized as an important cause of morbidity and blindness" and "may even be life-threatening." While the cornea is believed to be the most common site for fungal eye infections, other parts of the eye such as the orbit, sclera, eyelids, and more may also be involved. Contact lens cases are recognized as a "potential source of pathogens associated with corneal ulcers" and according to Moorfields Eye Hospital, contact lens wear is "the most prevalent risk factor for new cases of corneal ulcers." Contaminants "isolated from contact lens associated corneal ulcers have often been shown to be" the same as found in the patients contact lens case, thus providing evidence contaminated contact lens cases may be a "replenishable source of pathogenic microbes." In the study ...

Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP)-or just Gas Permeable (GP)-lenses are sometimes mistaken for old-fashioned lenses. The old hard contact lenses that people know are rarely used today. RGP lenses are more pliable, more comfortable, and they allow oxygen to the cornea. Gas permeable lenses allow more oxygen to the cornea than traditional soft contact lenses. They do not change their shape when you blink or move your eyes because they are rigid. This means they offer sharper vision than soft contacts. They are much more durable than soft lenses. Because they do not contain water, proteins and lipids do not adhere to them like they can do with soft lenses. RGP lenses also come in many bifocal and multifocal designs.. The biggest disadvantage of RGP lenses is that patients need to get used to them. They are not immediately comfortable like soft lenses. RGP lenses take 3 to 4 days for patients to adapt to them. They need to be worn regularly (although not every day) to achieve optimal comfort. They are ...

A method of treating contact lens intolerance includes the steps of: providing a solution comprising an essential fatty acid, and applying the solution to a surface of the contact lens. Preferably, the essential fatty acid is an omega-3 fatty acid. The contact lens can be soaked in a container holding a supply of the solution, or the solution can be applied via a dropper directly to the contact lens in the eye or while on a surface or in a container. The contact lens can have the solution applied during manufacture as a part of the contact lens material or as a solution saturated into the contact lens.

WE often think about wearing sunglasses to protect our eyes from the suns glare, but as a contact lens wearer do you know if your contact lenses filter harmful UV light?. A study conducted by the American Academy of Optometry on 400 contact lens wearers in the UK found that a huge 74 per cent didnt know that many contact lenses have UV blocking technology.. The sun radiates UVA and UVB rays which are damaging to both the bodys eyes and skin and over exposure to either can cause eye conditions and diseases such as photokeratitis (sunburn of the cornea) and in more extreme cases as a result of long term damage, cataracts. Ultraviolet light can also enhance the effects of Age-Related Macular Degeneration, a condition that usually occurs in those aged over 50 where the central vision begins to deteriorate due to the destruction of the macular.. "Its very important to protect your eyes from the sun to prevent conditions that can lead to sight loss and even blindness in the future. By wearing CE ...

When initially diagnosed, treatment will begin with new eyeglasses.

As we all get older, the crystalline lens inside your eyes becomes less flexible, which means it becomes difficult to focus on objects close to you. This condition is called presbyopia. Now, our technologically advanced multifocal contact lenses allow you to see in the distance as well as close-up.. Multifocal contact lenses are designed with a gradual change in prescription between close and distance viewing. The most common design is a set of concentric circles of lens powers for the different viewing distances. These powers are normally blended. Your natural viewing experience means the pupil size varies depending on which distance you are looking hence covering different concentric ring powers.. Multifocal contact lenses are available as soft daily disposable contact lenses, which can be worn occasionally. They are also available as a two weekly and monthly contact lens for those who like to wear them more frequently. ...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 5, 2012)  -- Soft contact lenses are worn safely and comfortably by millions of people worldwide, and have a long history of providing wearers with a safe and effective form of vision correction when properly worn and cared for.  However, research shows that many contact lens wearers are significantly non-compliant in virtually all active steps involved in soft contact lens wear, including hand washing, case hygiene, lens disinfection, and following the recomm...
According to a report by msnbc.com, Dan ONeil, a father of a 15 year old teen, says that he had to rush his daughter to the hospital to receive medical treatment after noticing she had a torn cornea and claims that Avaira Toric contact lenses are what caused the injury. Mr. ONeil states that he knew nothing about the CooperVision lens recall, which ultimately affected 5 million contact lenses, until after his daughters eye injury.. CooperVision, the manufacturer of Avaira contact lenses, issued a voluntary recall of 600,000 contact lenses in August of this year. On November 16th, the company was forced to expand their recall to 5,000,000 contacts which includes an extended line of Avaira contacts known as Avaira Sphere. The recall was due to a silicone oil residue found on the lenses. As a result, the contacts did not meet the quality requirements which are set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).. The affected contact lenses are shown to cause symptoms such as hazy vision, discomfort, ...

Before assigning corrective lenses for the study, the researchers surveyed the participants to determine whether they had low or high satisfaction with the eyeglasses they had been wearing before the study began. This was done to determine whether previous unhappiness with eyeglasses might influence how the children with contact lenses perceived themselves.. "We thought kids who hated wearing glasses would have a lot greater benefit from contact lens wear than kids who thought glasses were perfectly fine," Walline said. "Overall, across the scale, it didnt seem to have much of an effect. But what that tells us is that, regardless of what kids think of their glasses, they seem to benefit from contact lens wear in these three specific areas.". Though the participating childrens global self worth scores increased across the board over the course of the study, there was no significant difference in overall self-worth between the two treatment groups.. However, on average, contact lens wearers ...
PURPOSE. To demonstrate the feasibility of indirectly measuring the precorneal tear film thickness and pre- and postlens tear film (PLTF) thickness using optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS. Central corneal thickness (C1) which includes the tear film (T) of both eyes of 40 non-contact lens wearers was measured using OCT after calibration. The mean age of the 40 subjects was 31.2 ± 9.3 years with a mean horizontal K-reading of 7.87 mm. Rigid contact lenses with base curves 0.3- to 0.5-mm steeper than the flattest K of the eye were fitted to measure real corneal thickness (C2), independently of the postlens tear film. T was calculated by T = C1 - C2. To measure pre- and postlens tear film thickness, Focus Night & Day and Acuvue lenses (Vistakon, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Jacksonville, FL) were fitted on both eyes. Central soft lens thickness (L1), which includes the prelens tear film (P), was measured by OCT in situ and in saline in a wet cell (L2). P was calculated by P = L1 - L2. ...
Ive had contact lenses for over 20 years and I can remember distinctly the first time I placed them in my eyes and how frustrating that process was. It got to the point where I threw a full tantrum when I couldnt get the contact lens to adhere to my eye.. Now it is second nature and I can do it in a car, in an elevator, or wherever I might be when one happens to fall out. I have even moistened a lens with tap water and even with saliva. It is easy to forget that your eye is a special tissue that is not nearly as resilient as ones skin and is a rather simple place for a microbe to flourish, especially when aided by prosthetic material (i.e., a contact lens) let alone poor hygiene.. None of this is good, especially not for an infectious disease physician. So, it comes as no surprise that I am not alone amongst contact lens users. Like my fellow dirty eye people, I have had numerous episodes of conjunctivitis and have had to take antibiotic eye drops and steroids several times--sometimes ...
A new study suggests that older adults who wear multifocal contact lenses to correct problems with near vision, a very common condition that increases with age, may have greater difficulty driving at night than their counterparts who wear glasses. Age-related problems with near vision, medically termed presbyopia, usually occurs after the age of 40 and results in the inability to focus on objects up close.. According to an article published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science ("The Effect of Presbyopic Vision Corrections on Nighttime Driving Performance"), wearing multifocal contact lenses resulted in significantly slower driving speeds at night than wearing progressive addition glasses. While slower driving would seem to reduce the likelihood of hitting nighttime road hazards, the authors reported a reduced ability to recognize road hazards among multifocal contact lens wearers.. The study also showed that multifocal contact lens wearers were able to see road signs, but at a much ...
1.0 Diopters of regular corneal astigmatism in both eyes. NOTE: look for consistency between manual keratometry, auto-keratometry and simulated keratometry measures to ensure regular astigmatism prior to enrollment. Subjects who wear contact lenses must discontinue its use for at least 2 weeks (soft contact lens) and at least 3 weeks (gas permeable contact lens) and until corneal topography shows stability prior to preoperative study measurements ...
Treatment of keratoconus depends on the severity of the condition. Initially, eyeglasses are often successful in correcting the myopia (near sightedness) and astigmatism; however, as the disease advances vision is not adequately corrected and requires rigid contact lenses to aid in flattening the corneal surface and providing optimal visual correction. Contact lens fitting can be difficult in patients with KC requiring frequent visits and lens changes but recent advances in the contact lens industry as provided more fitting options. Lastly, when good vision can no longer be attained with contact lenses or intolerance to the contact lens develops, corneal transplantation is recommended. This is only necessary in about 10% of patients with KC and carries a success rate of greater than 90%, one of the highest for corneal transplantation. Although this procedure replaces the thinned central portion of the corneal, eyeglasses and contact lenses are often required for maximal visual acuity ...
Switching from glasses to contact lenses is easier than you may think. Contact lenses are the preferred alternative to vision correction these days, offering you the vision enhancement you need at a price you can afford. There are a lot of things youll to need to know about your contacts, although they are far superior to the traditional correction of glasses..

Your optician will give you a prescription for your contacts, examine the health of your eyes, and tell you which type of contacts will work the best for you.

You have many different manufacturers as well, offering many different types, colors, and styles. Not all are suitable for you though, as no 2 eyes are the same. When you get fitted for your contact lenses, your optician will be ...
Perry Rosenthal, MD, founder of the nonprofit Boston EyePain Foundation, specialized in ophthalmology through the residency program of Harvards Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. As a resident, he founded the Infirmarys first Contact Lens Service at the "suggestion" of Professor Edwin P Dunphy, then chair of the Department of Ophthalmology and a visionary who understood the potential of hard contact lenses to improve vision impaired by corneal diseases. Dr. Rosenthal quickly discovered that the usefulness of first generation commercial contact lenses was severely limited by blocking corneal access to oxygen needed to support their metabolism. In effect, these devices asphyxiated the corneas while they were worn. The solution was obvious and Rosenthal co-founded Polymer Technology to develop rigid contact lens plastics that breathed" and compatible solutions known as the Boston Lens™ products. The company was subsequently acquired by Bausch & Lomb.. In 1986 Rosenthal was referred a patient ...

Follow-up on Extreme Ortho-K. In my last column, I wrote about the possibility of correcting up to 10 D of myopia with a few available extreme orthokeratology lens designs. It was pointed out to me by an esteemed colleague that the use of orthokeratology lenses for the correction of more than 5 or 6 D of myopia is an off-label use of these devices. For Paragon CRT lenses, the FDA approved limit is -6.00 D, while for B+L VST lenses, the FDA approved limit is -5.00 D. Though we, as contact lens practitioners, can prescribe lenses for off-label use when we find it appropriate, we have to be careful when doing so. In this case, we dont have evidence of the relative safety of correcting such high levels of myopia as compared to the approved levels. Though it is effective and appears to be safe, we must monitor these patients diligently. This is a good reminder that with all contact lens fitting, we must be cognizant of the risks of lens wear, especially with special designs and/or compromised ...
Had yet another appt. with optometrist to check fit on my RGP lenses ( rigid gas permeable contact lenses). The ye both dropped a little bit so she has ordered new ones.

No where near as bad as they were when I was using the all in one cleaning solutions but my eyes still "weep" when they are in and respond with severe irritation.. I also have an opthamologist appointment in January to discuss possible treatments including CR3 treatment, I don;t even know if it available in Canada or if OHIP will pay for it. Not sure if I am a candidate from Intacts as well.. ...
Contact lenses are a great way to have refractive errors corrected so that you can see clearly. However, when you wear Corona contacts, it is important that you watch out for contact lens -related infections, such as keratitis..

Our optometrist will be able to definitively diagnose whether or not your eye actually has an infection, and provide you with appropriate treatment.

Keratitis is a serious contact lens -related infection which ...
For those who are tempted to try out a pair of coloured contact lenses, there are many different designs to suit your needs.

For Cosplayers, the idea of prescription coloured contact lenses should be a dream. Many Cosplay costumes require a novelty contact lens design to suit the character but with non prescription contact lenses the choices for Cosplay are either to not wear coloured contacts in favour of lenses to see, to wear glasses on top of coloured contacts even if the character doesn t have glasses, or to just deal with blurry vision. Now Cosplayers can have completely accurate looking costumes while being able to clearly see their way around the convention centre. You can also wear these lenses as an alternative to your eye colour on ...

New study compares satisfaction rates of contact lens users with people who underwent laser eye surgery for vision correction (Myopia, Hypermetropia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia). The study published in the most influential US journal (Ophtalmology), recruited 1.800 people and found that contact lens users who opted for laser eye surgery were more satisfied with their vision a year after the surgery - and even more satisfied after 2-3 years.. People surveyed after laser eye surgery reported higher satisfaction rates than those who didnt have laser and instead continued to use contacts.. "The study is the first to compare satisfaction rates of contact lens wearers with those who undergo laser vision correction for Myopia, Hypermetropia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia. This patient-reported information allows to compare efficacy of laser eye surgery with contact lens performance", affirms Dr Badalà, expert in ocular Laser and Microsurgery interviewed on the subject.. ...

METHODS: Subjects reporting to a contact lens clinic of a tertiary eye-care centre in India from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014, with a minimum of five years of lens wear, were included in the study ...

As Halloween approaches and costume planning gets more serious, many consider the use of novelty or costume contact lenses as a way to add that extra flair. Whether you are dressing up as a cat, a vampire, or looking for something fun that glows in the dark, dressing up your eyes can certainly add the finishing touch to your outfit. However, most people are unaware that costume contact lenses can pose a serious danger to your sight. If used improperly and bought without a medical prescription from an eye care professional, costume contact lenses can cause serious infection, corneal abrasions and in some cases lead to permanent vision loss. As contact lenses are considered a medical device they need to be prescribed and fitted by a licensed eye care professional, according to the FDA and Health Canada. Most of the lenses sold in novelty and retail stores are not approved by the FDA or Health Canada. This is because the material they are made from can scratch your cornea, distort your vision or ...

Therapeutic contact lenses are useful in a variety of ocular surface diseases. Their main indications are: to relieve the pain; protect ocular surface; promote corneal healing and epithelial regeneration; seal a leaking corneal wound and deliver ophthalmic drugs on the ocular surface. There are several kinds of lens designs and materials, and their choice is dependent on the specific disease to be treated, the duration of treatment and the physiologic needs of the diseased cornea. Bullous keratopathy, recurrent epithelial erosion syndrome, dry eye and postoperative epithelial defects are amongst their indications. Therapeutic contact lenses should not be indicated in the presence of active infectious keratitis or when the patient is not compliant. Corneal neovascularization, giant papillary conjunctivitis and infectious keratitis are serious complications, which can be prevented by correctly fitting and maintaining the therapeutic contact lenses. Silicon-hydrogel therapeutic contact lenses, due ...
When your eyes are closed with contacts on, the oxygen exchange to your eye is inhibited even more than normal. This results in increased swelling of the cornea (edema) and can cause the contact lens to fit improperly, which can lead to acute red eye irritation. If the cornea is repeatedly deprived of oxygen (hypoxia), the eye may form new blood vessels (corneal neovascularization) or improperly formed cells that may rupture (corneal microcysts). Complications can change the surface and shape of the cornea, ultimately making it unsafe to wear contact lenses. To counter this, contact lens manufacturers have created extended wear contact lenses which increase the oxygen permeability of contact lenses. These contacts are approved for up to 30 days continuous wear, but these claims must be taken with caution. In the manufacturers own literature, only 80% of patients are expected to be able to achieve 30 days of continuous wear and 3-5% of wearers developed corneal inflammation accompanied with mild ...

Silicone hydrogel contact lenses are soft lenses that have been developed specifically for continuous wear, made of a material with superior oxygen permeability - more oxygen reaches the cornea. Popular brands include Air Optix, Acuvue Oasys, Biofinity and Purevision.
Silicone hydrogel lenses are increasingly accepted among eye care professionals as they provide greater benefits to users because their high Dk means they are more permeable to oxygen.. The lipid action mechanism on silicone hydrogel lenses is different from that of traditional disposable lenses.. The materials of this type of lenses have different characteristics to those used in conventional hydrogel contact lenses and so their maintenance must also be different.. ...
Introduction: Infectious keratitis is caused by inflammation of the cornea from an infectious pathogen that usually results in corneal scarring. It is a major cause of visual impairment globally. The management of infectious keratitis is challenging, and unfortunately, there is no proper study on this issue in the central zone of Sarawak to date.. Purpose: To identify the demographic characteristics, risk factors, and etiological agents of patients with infectious keratitis in Sibu Hospital, Sarawak, Malaysia.. Design of the study: Retrospective study.. Materials and methods: Data were collected and reviewed from medical records of all patients with infectious keratitis in Sibu Hospital from January 2013 up to May 2018.. Results: A total of 139 patients (143 eyes/cases) were included in the study. The average age of affected individuals was 47.39 years. The most frequently affected patients fell within the age group of 21-30 years (18.9%). The male-to-female ratio was 1.65:1, with 61.5% of ...
Gelatinous drop-like corneal dystrophy, also known as amyloid corneal dystrophy, is a rare form of corneal dystrophy. The disease was described by Nakaizumi as early as 1914. The main pathological features in this dystrophy are mulberry-shaped gelatinous masses beneath the corneal epithelium. Patients suffer from photophobia, foreign body sensation in the cornea. The loss of vision is severe. The amyloid nodules have been found to contain lactoferrin, but the gene encoding lactoferrin is unaffected. This form of corneal amyloidosis appears to be more frequent in Japan. A number of mutations causing this disease have been described in the M1S1 (TACSTD2) gene encoding Tumor-associated calcium signal transducer 2, but not all patients have these mutations, suggesting involvement of other genes. Recurrence within a few years occurs in all patients following corneal transplantation. Soft contact lenses are effective in decreasing recurrences. Nakaizumi, K. : A rare case of corneal dystrophy. Acta. ...
