To document outcomes associated with use of scleral contact lenses (SL) in the veteran population and analyze the medical and demographic factors that affect these outcomes, specifically those involved in contact lens discontinuation.
To report the success rate of scleral lens wear and the lens handling learning curve from the wearers perspective.
To report the fitting aspects, clinical findings, and symptoms over 12 months of scleral lens (SL) wear.
To describe indications for scleral contact lens (ScCL) evaluation, previous treatments, and outcomes of patients prescribed ScCL at a tertiary referral center.
To compare the effects of a photochromic contact lens vs. a non-photochromic control lens on visual function.
To compare the infectious contact lens-related corneal ulcer (CLRU) and non-CLRU cases at Saint Louis University.
To determine the extent of contact lens fitting for myopia control (MC) in children (defined as ≤ 17 years of age) worldwide and to characterize the associated demographics and fitting patterns.
In the bleb phenomenon, some endothelial cells transiently lose their specular reflection. This has been reported during contact lens wear and goggle-induced hypoxia or hypercapnia.
Lid eversion is an essential component of contact lens aftercare. Hence, this study determined the best method of lid eversion based on three criteria: comfort, speed of administration and the area of the palpebral conjunctiva exposed.
To evaluate meibomian gland (MG) width and determine its impact on successful contact lens (CL) use and ocular health.
To investigate the effect of scleral-fixated intraocular lens (IOL) tilt on visual outcomes.
To report a case of an opacified scleral-sutured Akreos intraocular lens (IOL) and discuss the technique for surgical removal.
August 19-23, 2019, marks the sixth annual Contact Lens Health Week. In collaboration with partners from clinical, public health, industry, and regulatory sectors, CDC is promoting healthy contact lens wear and care practices to reduce the risk for eye infections among the approximately 45 million persons in the United States who wear contact lenses. Studies conducted following outbreaks of rare but serious eye infections in the United States have found that these infections occur most frequently in contact...
To evaluate the effect of microblepharon exfoliation on the number of eyelid bacteria and their lipase activity and the relationship of these to contact lens discomfort.
To explore the association between xerostomia and dry eye symptoms in the older adult population.
To compare the central and peripheral (< 2 mm from the limbus) endothelial regions of the human cornea of young contact lens (CL) neophytes, in terms of endothelial cell density (ECD), polymorphism through cell hexagonality (HEX), and polymegethism through the coefficient of variation of cell areas (CoV).
An estimated 45 million U.S. residents enjoy the benefits of contact lens wear, but many of them might be at increased risk for complications stemming from improper wear and care behaviors (1). One of the most serious complications of contact lens wear is a corneal infection known as microbial keratitis, which can sometimes result in reduced vision or blindness (2). In 2014, 50% of contact lens wearers reported ever sleeping in contact lenses, and 55% reported topping off* their contact lens solutions (3), ...
The first contact lens to incorporate a photochromic additive was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration last year. Because any ophthalmic lens that absorbs visible wavelengths will reduce retinal illuminance, it is important to understand the impact of this new photochromic contact lens on vision and both daytime and nighttime driving performance.
Every part of the human body is subject to aging, including the eye. An increased prevalence of dry eye disease with age is widely acknowledged. Aging threatens ocular surface homeostasis, altering the normal functioning of the lacrimal functional unit and potentially leading to signs and symptoms of dry eye. Additional age-related processes take place within the crystalline lens, leading to presbyopia and cataractogenesis. Correction strategies for presbyopia and cataracts may directly or indirectly challe...
The quantitative analysis of tear analytes in point-of-care settings can enable early diagnosis of ocular diseases. Here, a fluorescent scleral lens sensor is developed to quantitatively measure physiological levels of pH, Na , K , Ca , Mg , and Zn ions. Benzenedicarboxylic acid, a pH probe, displays a sensitivity of 0.12 pH units within pH 7.0-8.0. Crown ether derivatives exhibit selectivity to Na and K ions within detection ranges of 0-100 and 0-50 mmol L , and selectivities of 15.6 and 8.1 mmol L , respe...
The optical and swelling properties of gatifloxacin-loaded contact lens decrease owing to the precipitation of gatifloxacin (on hydration) in the matrix structure of the contact lens. This paper focuses on the use of Pluronic F68 both inside and outside (in the packaging solution) the contact lens to form micelles to dissolve the gatifloxacin precipitates and not limited to sustain the release of gatifloxacin. The aim of this study was to screen the critical variables affecting the optical and swelling prop...
Standardised numeric grading scales are used in ophthalmic practice to improve consistency between clinicians in recording the severity of ocular conditions and to facilitate the monitoring of such changes. We investigated the intra- and inter-observer grading reliability and the agreement between subjective Cornea and Contact Lens Research Unit (CCLRU) and Efron grading scales as well as a new Advanced Ophthalmic Systems (AOS) software which uses an objective approach to grading conjunctival hyperaemia.
Lid wiper epitheliopathy (LWE) is insufficiently understood from a cytological perspective. This study set out to explore the relationship between the lid margin cytomorphology, LWE, contact lens wear, and lens-related symptoms. Habitual, symptomatic (n = 20) and asymptomatic (n = 20) soft, rigid gas permeable (n = 18) and non-contact lens wearers (n = 19) were enrolled. LWE was graded using lissamine green and the Korb scale; subjective symptoms were assessed using the Ocular Surface Diseas...
To investigate the inflammatory response of the ocular surface with different soft contact lens (CL) replacement frequencies and materials.
