    Contact Lens & Dry Eye

     

    Comfort, Safety, Quality of Vision

    Keeping the eyelids clean helps the lenses stay clean which directly benefits patient comfort, safety and quality of vision.

    Routine eyelid hygiene helps remove dirt, oil, debris and other contaminants that can be transferred into the eye or onto the contact lens surface.

    Blepharitis and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) patients typically experience heavy deposits of lipids on their lenses. This phenomenon is not limited to these patients, however. These lipid deposits may also be seen in those with no apparent MGD due to the individual composition of the meibum.

    Over time, lipids associated with the contact lens will become unstable and degrade. Once formed, these deposits impair optical quality and the wettability of the lens surface (with the latter resulting in a quick break-up of the tear film), which can eventually lead to intolerance to contact lens wear.

    In addition to affecting the tear film, vision and comfort, the lids play host to myriad microorganisms. Bacterial contamination of soft lenses is associated with microbial keratitis and corneal inflammatory events.

    The lid margin, commonly colonized by microbes, is found to harbor organisms up to 70% of the time. Additionally, substantial lid bioburden is likely the major route of lens contamination.

    Eyelid Hygiene is Important

    While extended wear contacts are more likely to develop excess buildup, even use of daily lenses were discovered to transfer bacteria from the skin to the eye which can cause irritation.
