Once adhered to a surface, microorganisms can become less susceptible to disinfection. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of various regimen steps on the efficacy of(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to determine the bacterial adhesion to various silicone hydrogel lens materials and to determine whether lens wear modulated adhesion. METHODS Bacterial adhesion (total and viable cells) of Staphylococcus aureus (31, 38, and ATCC 6538) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (6294, 6206, and GSU-3) to 10 commercially available(More)
