Recently, new contact lens materials have been introduced which are reported to improve comfort by incorporating wetting agents either in a releasable or nonreleasable form. In the present work, model lens materials based on poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA) were developed which incorporate releasable or crosslinked and therefore physically(More)
The physical immobilization of hyaluronic acid (HA) as a wetting agent in contact lens applications was investigated using model silicone hydrogels prepared by co-polymerizing methacryloxy propyl tris (trimethylsiloxy) silane (Tris) and hydroxyethylmethacrylate (HEMA). Two different molecular weights of HA were investigated, as well as various Tris/HEMA(More)
