Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hydrophilic contact lenses worn for an extended period or permanently.

Soft, supple contact lenses made of plastic polymers which interact readily with water molecules. Many types are available, including continuous and extended-wear versions, which are gas-permeable and easily sterilized.

Lenses designed to be worn on the front surface of the eyeball. (UMDNS, 1999)

An alternative to REFRACTIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURES. A therapeutic procedure for correcting REFRACTIVE ERRORS. It involves wearing CONTACT LENSES designed to force corrective changes to the curvature of the CORNEA that remain after the lenses are removed. The effect is temporary but is maintained by wearing the therapeutic lenses daily, usually during sleep.

Occlusal wear of the surfaces of restorations and surface wear of dentures.
