Contact-lens-related corneal abrasions are a management problem for optometrists because of the risk of ulcerative keratitis, particularly from Pseudomonas. Risks and causes of abrasions should be identified for extended-wear patients, and appropriate steps should be taken to minimize the opportunity for injury. When an extended-wear patient presents with(More)
