Visual outcome after contact lens and intraocular lens correction of neonatal monocular aphakia in monkeys. (1/53)

PURPOSE: A monkey model was used to evaluate intraocular lenses (IOLs) and extended-wear contact lenses (EWCLs) for the optical treatment of infantile aphakia in humans. Specifically, the relative effectiveness of EWCLs used alone and IOLs used in combination with EWCLs in preventing amblyopia was assessed. METHODS: A total of 33 rhesus monkeys was studied in this project, 24 assigned to experimental treatment groups and 9 to normal controls. Contact lenses made from a diffusing material or dyed opaque were placed on one eye at birth to simulate an infantile cataract. A unilateral lensectomy was then performed on the same eye within 2.5 weeks after birth. In 15 monkeys this was combined with implantation of an IOL. The eyes were left aphakic in the remaining 9 animals. EWCLs were used to adjust the optical correction of both aphakic and pseudophakic eyes to a near point (3-5 D). Opaque lenses were used to maintain daily part-time (approximately 70%) occlusion of the fellow eye. The primary outcome measure was grating acuity assessed with behavioral methods. Some animals were also assessed for acuity with sweep visually evoked potentials (VEPs) and for optotype acuity (Landolt C) with behavioral methods. RESULTS: Two of the animals with IOLs developed complications in the eye that precluded completion of the behavioral assessment protocol. Only behavioral outcomes obtained before or in the absence of surgical complications are presented. There was a developmental delay in the maturation of grating acuity in both eyes of both treatment groups. Normal adult levels of grating acuity were eventually achieved in the group treated with IOLs combined with EWCLs. Grating acuity was significantly poorer than normal in aphakic eyes treated only with EWCLs. Comparison of the two treatment groups revealed that pseudophakic eyes treated with multifocal IOLs had significantly better gating acuity than aphakic eyes. Assessments of optotype acuity and sweep VEP acuity revealed amblyopic deficits in both pseudophakic and aphakic eyes. CONCLUSIONS: Given an absence of serious postoperative complications, neonatal correction of aphakia with IOLs combined with EWCLs can lead to normal grating acuity in a primate model. Correction with EWCLs alone was not sufficient to produce normal grating acuity. Multifocal IOL treatments combined with EWCL provided a significantly better outcome than EWCL methods alone. However, neither IOL nor EWCL methods were able to prevent amblyopia as evaluated using behavioral testing with optotypes or with sweep VEPs.  (+info)

Extended wear contact lens related bacterial keratitis. (2/53)

AIMS: To report the clinical findings and visual outcome of patients with extended wear contact lens (EWCL) related bacterial keratitis. METHODS: 11 cases with EWCL related bacterial keratitis were included. Corneal scrapings were obtained for cytology and cultures. RESULTS: Nine patients had unilateral bacterial keratitis and two patients showed bilateral involvement. Corneal scrapings revealed Pseudomonas aeruginosa in seven patients, Staphylococcus aureus coagulase positive in one patient, and Staphylococcus epidermidis in three patients. CONCLUSION: EWCLs may be associated with bacterial keratitis and may result in visual loss. Dispensing contact lenses by optometrists should be performed in consultation with ophthalmologists.  (+info)

Short term wear of high Dk soft contact lenses does not alter corneal epithelial cell size or viability. (3/53)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Current contact lenses (CLs) when worn on an extended wear basis cause corneal epithelial alterations. The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in corneal epithelial cell morphology and physiology following short term (3 months) wear of highly oxygen permeable CLs and to compare this with disposable CLs. METHODS: Subjects were wearers of highly oxygen permeable CLs (n=11, wearing CLs on a 30 night schedule), disposable CL users (n=6, wearing CLs on a 6 night schedule), and non-CL wearers (n=20). Mean CL wear experience was 3 months. Epithelial cells were harvested using corneal cytology and were stained using acridine orange and ethidium bromide. Epithelial cell size and viability were determined. RESULTS: The majority of epithelial cells recovered were non-viable (71%), and the mean longest cell diameter was 38 (SD 8) microm. Disposable CLs caused an increase in cell size (42 (7) microm) compared with both non-wear (39 (7) microm, p=0.01) and wear of highly oxygen permeable CLs (37 (10) microm, p=0.0049). There was no difference in cell viability between groups. CONCLUSIONS: Extended wear of disposable CLs caused an 8% increase in cell diameter in harvested corneal epithelial cells following 3 months of CL wear. Cells harvested following 3 months' wear of highly oxygen permeable CLs were indistinguishable from those recovered from non-CL wearers.  (+info)

Combined phototherapeutic keratectomy and therapeutic contact lens for recurrent erosions in bullous keratopathy. (4/53)

AIMS: To evaluate the therapeutic effects of excimer laser phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) combined with therapeutic contact lens for painful recurrent corneal erosions (RCE) secondary to bullous keratopathy (BK) not suitable for penetrating keratoplasty. METHODS: Excimer laser PTK was performed prospectively in eight eyes with painful RCE due to BK visually expecting no benefit from penetrating keratoplasty. After mechanical removal of the epithelium, the corneas were ablated with 50 pulses in the central 6.5 mm zone (ablation rate 0.25 microm per pulse) and another 200 pulses for polishing the periphery. After PTK, therapeutic contact lenses were applied for 3 months. The mean follow up period after PTK was 10.9 months (ranging from 6 to 15 months). RESULTS: All patients experienced relief of their pain symptoms after the epithelium healed. Only one patient complained of occasional stinging pain with intermittent recurrence of small bullae. He refused a second treatment because the pain was much less than that before the surgery and quite tolerable. No infection or other complications were noted. CONCLUSION: PTK with deeper ablation and adjunctive therapeutic contact lens is an easy to perform and effective treatment with less recurrence rate for patients with BK and poor visual potential.  (+info)

Predicting extended wear complications from overnight corneal swelling. (5/53)

PURPOSE: To examine the hypothesis that the corneal overnight swelling response (ONSR) is a predictor of ocular complications in contact lens extended wear (EW). METHODS: The Berkeley Contact Lens Extended Wear Study (CLEWS) was a randomized, concurrently controlled clinical trial in which more than 200 subjects in EW with rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses were observed for 1 year. After adapting to EW, subjects were randomized to either medium or high oxygen-permeable (Dk) RGP lenses and underwent clinical assessments, keratometry, and corneal pachometry at 3-month intervals. RESULTS: The ONSR was directly related to lens Dk (P = 0.01) and exhibited substantial variability across subjects. The probability of remaining free of complications over time was not significantly lower for subjects with a mild ONSR compared with those with greater edema (P = 0.84). The risk of development of keratopathy was not significantly related to the ONSR (relative risk = 1.00). CONCLUSIONS: The corneal ONSR is not a good predictor of ocular complications in 1 year of RGP EW. Lenses that cause little or no corneal edema are not necessarily safer for overnight wear.  (+info)

Impact of rigid gas-permeable contact lens extended wear on corneal epithelial barrier function. (6/53)

PURPOSE: To measure the effect of hypoxia and eye closure on epithelial permeability to fluorescein (P(dc)) during rigid lens extended wear (EW). METHODS: Central corneal thickness (CT) and P(dc) were measured in 42 subjects with an optical pachometer and automated scanning fluorophotometer, respectively. All subjects had been successfully wearing rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses on a 6-night EW regimen, and each individual was randomized to wear either medium- or high-oxygen-permeable (Dk) RGP lenses (two types of siloxane-fluorocarbon polymer lenses with Dk of 49 and 92). CT and P(dc) measurements were performed at an afternoon visit (baseline) and were repeated in the morning after 8 hours of overnight wear. Subjects slept with a patch over the right eye. The patch was not removed until immediately before the morning measurement. RESULTS: The mean overnight swelling response for subjects in the medium-Dk group was greater than that in the high-Dk group. Results of a paired t-test indicate that the eye wearing the medium-Dk lens with a patch overnight had a significant increase in epithelial permeability. Results of mixed-effect models suggest that eye closure and lens-induced hypoxia are significant factors in altering P(dc). CONCLUSIONS: The results indicate that corneal epithelial permeability increases with hypoxic dose and that epithelial barrier function is impaired by overnight rigid lens wear.  (+info)

Patterns of mucin adherence to contact lenses. (7/53)

PURPOSE: Contact lens wear alters the preocular fluid through factors that include tear deposits on the lens. In the current study, lens-adherent material was extracted to assess whether contact lenses sample mucins from the preocular fluid. METHODS: Discarded extended-wear contact lenses were collected from patients with no ocular surface disease. Mucins were extracted in guanidine hydrochloride (GuHCl) with protease inhibitors. After the supernatant was removed, the extraction was repeated twice with the addition of 10 mM dithiothreitol, making a total of three extractions. Mucins were isolated by cesium chloride (CsCl) gradient centrifugation and size fractionated on Sepharose CL2B. Charge distribution was analyzed on ion-exchange chromatography with a lithium perchlorate (LiClO(4)) gradient. RESULTS: Contact lens-adherent mucins comprised soluble mucins and mucins that required solubilization by (repeated) dithiothreitol treatment. MUC1, MUC4, MUC2, and MUC5AC mucins eluted mainly at low buoyant densities in extractions from lenses worn long term without disinfection and at successively higher buoyant densities from monthly disposable contact lenses. Mucins with little negative charge, which were observed in all extractions, and very highly negatively charged species, present in the second and third extractions from contact lenses, had no equivalents in tissue-extracted mucins. CONCLUSIONS: Mucins adhering to contact lenses are altered forms of intracellular mucins. Different degrees of adherence of mucins to contact lenses may occur, either because of mucin characteristics or after mucin complexation with adherent materials. In the context of good contact lens hygiene, their presence may offer some protection from toxicants in the tear film, because mucins could function as acceptors for charged moieties such as free radicals.  (+info)

Vertical movement of epithelial basal cells toward the corneal surface during use of extended-wear contact lenses. (8/53)

PURPOSE: To study the effects of extended contact lens wear (EW) on the movement of basal epithelial cells toward the corneal surface. METHODS: Rabbits (n = 32) were injected with 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU) to label a group of proliferating basal epithelial cells, and, 24 hours later, one randomly chosen eye was fitted with a low- or medium-oxygen-transmissible (Dk/t) rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lens, while the other eye served as the control (n = 28). Four rabbits were not fitted with any contact lens. Rabbits were euthanatized at different time points and the corneal epithelium was immunocytochemically stained for BrdU and/or Ki-67 and counterstained with propidium iodide or Syto 59. Corneal flatmount tissues were examined three dimensionally under a laser confocal microscope and the location of each BrdU-labeled cell in the corneal epithelium (basal or suprabasal) was determined. RESULTS: Four days after injection of BrdU, both low- (P < 0.001) and medium-Dk/t RGP (P < 0.001) lens groups showed significantly more BrdU-labeled cells in the basal cell layer than in the control eyes. Six days after injection of BrdU, a small percentage of BrdU-labeled cells (<0.5%) were Ki-67 positive. CONCLUSIONS: Within 6 days, the majority (80%) of BrdU-labeled basal cells became terminally differentiated and rarely divided secondarily in the central epithelium. Short-term use of low- and medium-Dk/t RGP EW contact lenses slows the normal movement of basal epithelial cells toward the surface in the central cornea. This is consistent with known EW-lens-induced decreases in corneal epithelial basal cell proliferation and surface cell exfoliation. Overall, the data suggest that EW lenses significantly inhibit the normal homeostatic turnover rate of the corneal epithelium.  (+info)

Previous clinical studies in humans have shown an increase in superficial cell size of the corneal epithelium after overnight lens wear. 17 18 19 20 21 22 It has been hypothesized that this increase in cell size can be caused by a prolonged residence time of epithelial cells on the ocular surface and that overnight contact lens wear delays the corneal epithelial turnover rate. 17 We have demonstrated in this study for the first time a direct inhibitory effect of short-term use of extended-wear contact lenses on the vertical movement of epithelial cells from the basal cell layer to the suprabasal compartment (wing and superficial cell layers) in the rabbit cornea. Basal epithelial cells of predominantly the central cornea in the contact-lens-wearing eye remained present longer in the basal cell compartment compared with the control eye. At day 2 (2 days after injection of BrdU and 1 day of contact lens wear), there was no statistically significant difference between the control and lens-wearing ...
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 ...
For people using 30-day extended-wear/continuous-wear (EW/CW) contact lenses, replacing lenses at night doesnt lower the risk of complications compared to changing lenses monthly, suggests a study -
During three Space Shuttle missions from 1993 to 1996, astronauts conducted experiments in the SPACEHAB pressurized research laboratory in the Orbiters cargo bay. Through this research, they were able to identify ways to form more permeable materials that allow oxygen to reach the cornea, which are ideal for extended-wear contact lenses. The results allowed Paragon Vision Sciences to develop an improved process that led to HDS® (Hyperpurified Delivery System) contact lenses. These gas-permeable rigid lenses dont contain water like soft contacts, are resistant to deposits and less likely to contain bacteria. Since they are rigid, they are easier to handle, retain their shape, and provide better vision. In 2002, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved these lenses for continuous wear of up to seven days. While the HDS® lenses improve vision, the technology was to use these materials to make a contact that could temporarily improve vision after it had been removed from the eye. In other ...

Physiological monitoring can be provided through a syncope sensor (64, 66) embedded into an electrocardiography monitor (12), which correlates syncope events and electrocardiographic data. Physiological monitoring can be provided through a lightweight wearable monitor (12) that includes two components: a flexible extended-wear electrode patch (15) and a reusable monitor recorder (14) that removably snaps into a receptacle (25) on the electrode patch (15). The wearable monitor (12) sits centrally on the patients sternal midline (16) and includes a unique narrow hourglass-like shape, significantly improving the ability of the monitor to cutaneously sense cardiac electrical potential signals, particularly the P-wave and QRS interval signals. The electrocardiographic electrodes (38, 39) on the electrode patch (15) are tailored for axial positioning along the midline (16) of the sternum (13) to capture action potential propagation in an orientation that corresponds to the aVF lead in a conventional 12

Listing of the answers to the question: What advice will you give me(a sixteen year old) going to wear contact lenses for the first time? RECOMMEND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF LENSES AND EYES.
Treatment is largely preventative and involves a stepwise approach. First, aggressive lubrication with artificial tears is recommended. Over-the-counter preservative-free artificial tears are used FROM four times per day to every hour while awake, combined with artificial tear ointment at bedtime. If there is no relief with aggressive lubrication, a therapeutic bandage soft contact lens may be used to prevent further erosions. This specially designed contact lens is left on the eye for weeks to months without removal in an attempt to prevent further corneal abrasions and promote better healing. Antibiotic drops are used to prevent infections secondary to long-term therapeutic contact lens use. Most patients recover completely with aggressive lubrication and/or placement of a bandage contact lens. For the few patients that remain symptomatic with RES, other therapeutic options remain, including anterior stromal puncture or superficial keratectomy, the latter performed with either a scalpel or a ...

Important information for AIR OPTIX® NIGHT & DAY® AQUA (lotrafilcon A) contact lenses: AIR OPTIX®NIGHT & DAY®AQUA lenses are indicated for vision correction for daily wear (worn only while awake) or extended wear (worn while awake and asleep) for up to 30 nights. Relevant Warnings: A corneal ulcer may develop rapidly and cause eye pain, redness or blurry vision as it progresses. If left untreated, a scar, and in rare cases loss of vision, may result.

A new therapeutic contact lens that acts as a bandage for eye surface injuries being developed by QUT researchers could soon fast track the healing of previously difficult to treat corneal wounds.
Topical antibiotics are also commonly used to reduce the risk of corneal infection.. A hallmark of the corneal surface defects seen in NK is that they are irregular in nature and may include one or more raised edges that can exacerbate tissue damage. When defects have rounded edges, a tarsorrhaphy or a therapeutic contact lens is a common treatment strategy. Stage-2 NK may also involve stromal swelling. This can ultimately lead to stromal melting and corneal perforation.. Traditional treatments for stage-2 or stage-3 NK also include penetrating keratoplasty in combination with tarsorrhaphy or a soft bandage contact lens. Another strategy to prevent the need for corneal transplant is the use of amniotic membranes, a tissue graft that provides both epithelial donor cells and a basement membrane matrix to support corneal re-epithelialization. As with other severe forms of keratitis, responses to these treatments vary from patient to patient.. Various preparations of artificial tears containing ...

In a nearer order from its object, a first lens group which has a negative refractive power, a brightness diaphragm, and a second lens group which has a positive refractive power, and a moving lens group which moves on an optical axis, conditions such as 2≦DL/fW≦6, and −2≦DVH/fW≦0.37 are satisfied under condition that DL (mm) indicates an air-converged length from an end surface near an image in the first lens group to an end surface nearer to an object in the moving lens group, fW (mm) indicates a focal length in an entire system in a wide angle end, DVH (mm) indicates a distance from the end surface near the object in the moving lens group to a front principal point. By doing this, it is possible to provide an objective optical system which can obtain a high magnification while securing a sufficient distance between the diaphragm which is disposed behind the optical axis direction converting element such as a prism to the moving lens group.

Those that wear contact lenses should be aware of important information that can help protect the eyes from permanent damage. There is mounting evidence that contact wearers should give their eyes some time away from contacts. The conventional wisdom is that people can wear contact lenses for 12-14 hours per 24 hour period but that once a week the eyes should have a rest from contact lenses. Experts agree that if contacts are worn for over 16 hours a day every day that eyes may become starved of oxygen. This means that over the long term the cornea could lose its transparency ...
Normally, napping with contact lenses for 20 minutes will not do damage to your eyes. Extended wear contacts are safer in this case. Then can you sleep overnight with contacts?

A zoom lens system having a zoom ratio of approximately 2 that is used with a compact camera. The systems overall lens length at the telephoto end is shorter than its focal length at the telephoto end, and it experiences small variations in aberrations during zooming. The present zoom lens system comprises, in order from the object side, a positive first lens group and a negative second lens group, which adjust the magnification by varying the distance therebetween. This lens system satisfies the following conditions: 1.59|fw/f1|2.0 (1) and 1.79|fw/f2|2.5 (2); where fw represent the focal length of the overall system at the wide-angle end; f1 represents the focal length of the first lens group and f2 represents the focal length of the second lens group (f2|0).

Campus mental health professionals have shown some interest in an ecological conceptualization. of student functioning, although a review of the literature suggests that this perspective has been limited in scope and influence. Morrill, Oetting, and Hurst (1974) proposed a framework for counseling interventions not limited to the therapy room. Their model, delineated in terms of target, purpose and method of intervention, expands the target domain of campus counseling staff from the traditional individual client to include primary groups (friends and family), associational groups (e.g., classes, student organizations and residence-based groups), and, most broadly, the institution or campus community. This model also expands method of service delivery beyond direct therapeutic contact to consultation, training and use of media. Finally, the purpose of intervention is defined to include, in addition to remediation of psychological difficulties, the more proactive goals of prevention of mental ...

Although other application methods are also acceptable, the ideal way to apply Vivilon restorer is to spray it on. This achieves speed and the finest finish. Its synthetic moisturizing molecules penetrate into and completely encapsulate weather-damaged pigments with image enhancers to guarantee exact original-color restoration. As it quickly air dries, Vivilons blend of extended-wear acrylic and nylon resins microbond with the existing surface to create maximum adhesion. Within minutes, an impermeable, virtually maintenance-free weather barrier is created that is guaranteed not to crack, peel, discolor or lose its gloss for a minimum of five years. However, actual exterior-exposure durability often exceeds 10 years. And, even then, whenever it starts to fade, it is easily reapplied after a quick cleaning for additional years of carefree service. Application can be done by in-house maintenance personnel with factory technical support or by Vivilon certified contractors. Vivilon can offer this ...

You may be tempted to think that if you see relatively well right now, you have nothing to worry about and you dont need an eye exam. Nothing could be farther from the truth. A comprehensive eye exam can detect problems long before you experience any change in vision. And early diagnosis means you have a better chance of preventing, or at least slowing, vision loss.. Even if an exam reveals no hint of disease, be wise and protect your eyes. Good quality sunglasses with UV protection are a must. If you wear glasses, opt for a UV-blocking lens material like polycarbonate or high index plastic. Anti-reflective coatings will make you more comfortable and reduce eye strain from computers, overhead lights and car headlights. If you wear contact lenses, ask your doctor about the newer brands that have UV protection embedded in them.You only get one pair of eyes in a lifetime. Cherish them.. ...

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. ...
The new advanced materials called silicon hydrogels allow up to 6 times more oxygen to travel through the contact lens than traditional soft disposable contact lenses. This oxygen permeability is extremely important to the health of the eye over long periods of time.. They are designed with a lower water content so they dont dry up as much as ordinary soft contact lenses. This may be beneficial to those finding their current lenses dry or uncomfortable, a common problem in modern air conditioned offices.. They have a special bio-compatible surface treatment to decrease protein deposits and bacteria growth. These not only keep your lenses in a healthier state but keep them more comfortable. This is important because protein and bacteria are a common cause of eye infections.. The ability to wear your lenses both night and day for up to 30 days also means you only have to insert and remove them once a month, making it easier for those who struggle with insertion.. Key Points:. ...

Purpose: : To determine whether reducing peripheral hyperopic defocus using distance-centre relatively-plus peripheral power contact lenses slows the rate of progress of myopia. Methods: : In Phase 1, 40 children aged 8 to 14 years with myopia -0.50 to -4.00 D and cylinder ≤0.75D were randomised to wear soft contact lenses that were either a Test Lens (TL) with relatively narrow central optical zone (2.3mm) with back vertex power to correct the childs distance vision and a relatively plus (+1.50D) peripheral optical zone, or, a single vision Control Lens (CL) in the same material and monitored for 43±4 months. In Phase 2, the remaining subjects wore TLs in both eyes for a further 2 years. Refractive error (RE) (cycloplegic autorefraction) and axial length (AL) (partial coherence interferometry) were measured 6 monthly. Differences in progression of RE and AL were compared using quadratic fits of a linear mixed model after adjusting for age, gender and ethnicity based on an intent-to-treat ...
An optical head comprising an objective lens having a large numerical aperture of 0.8 or more. The head further comprises a light source and an aberration-correcting lens group. To correct spherical aberration due to the manufacturing errors of an optical recording medium and lenses, to sufficiently correct chromatic aberration due to the use of a short-wavelength semiconductor laser and to correct aberration resulting from the use of the same optical system for light beams of different wavelengths, the objective lens 20 is composed of two more lenses and has a numerical aperture of 0.80 or more and the aberration-correcting lens group 1 is composed of a positive lens group 3 and a negative lens group 2. The space between the positive lens group 3 and negative lens group 2 of the aberration-correcting lens group 1 is changed, thereby to correct spherical aberration occurring at each optical surface of the optical system.
Orthokeratology involves the use of specially designed rigid gas-permeable contact lenses to alter the shape of the cornea in order to reduce or correct myopia.

Yes. It appears that rigid gas permeable lenses are a bit safer than soft lenses.. But before you select a lens solely on that basis, remember that choosing a lens material is determined by many factors in addition to safety. Since both rigid and soft lenses are very safe (though rigid lenses are a bit safer), other factors may determine the best choice for your eyes. Much more important than the lens is when and how you wear it. Wearing contact lenses during sleep (called extended wear or flexible wear) is associated with a greater risk of corneal infection than lens wear in which the lenses are removed each night before sleep (called daily wear).. We dont yet know exactly why this happens, but it is believed to be related to the fact that there is much less oxygen available to the cornea when the eye is closed during sleep. Because of the added risk, the decision to wear contact lenses overnight is a serious one that should be made only after thorough discussion with your contact lens ...

For people with Keratoconus contact lenses are often the best way to achieve vision correction. There are many different types of lenses and this article looks at the limitations of Hydrogel lenses for Keratoconus.. Keratoconus is a disease of the eye. The cornea, which is the front part of the eye, thins and becomes misshapen leading to the front of the eye developing an irregular cone shape..

While spectacles may produce some correction for early, or very mild, cases of Keratoconus, once the condition progresses beyond a certain point it becomes impossible to get reasonable correction with spectacles.. Contact lenses are often the next form of correction used, however there are many different types of contact lenses and some of them are more effective than others.. Hydrogel lenses are what are sometimes called soft contact lenses.. Traditional Hydrogel lenses are very soft and ...
