Effectiveness of No-Rub Contact Lens Cleaning on Protein Removal: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Not all no-rub contact lens solutions were shown capable of removing the protein deposit from soft contact lenses.
Isolation and identification of biologically active contaminants from soft contact lenses
A method for elution of contaminants deposited onto soft contact lenses during wear utilizing a nondestructive cleaning procedure is presented. Twenty-five soft contact lenses supplied, by American
Isolation and identification of biologically active contaminants from soft contact lenses. I. Nicotine deposits on worn lenses.
TLDR
It is found that nicotine, a common environmental pollutant and a significant component of the blood of people who smoke regularly, is one of the contaminants present on a worn soft contact lens.
Wear effects on microscopic morphology and hyaluronan uptake in siloxane-hydrogel contact lenses.
TLDR
Clear experimental evidence of a buggy surface was observed with several crests and regions of swelling, which could be filled by the hyaluronan solution, which are attributed to the progressive relaxation of the structure of the polymeric network.
Biological and Clinical Implications of Lysozyme Deposition on Soft Contact Lenses
TLDR
It is suggested that deposition of lysozyme on contact lens materials may provide a number of beneficial effects during contact lens wear.
The pathology of soft contact lens spoilage.
The autofluorescence of plastic materials and chips measured under laser irradiation.
TLDR
Intrinsic optical constants of plastic materials-refractive index for bulk materials-determined by spectroscopic ellipsometry and transmission spectroscopy in the visible range are presented and overall, the longer wavelength laser excitation sources yielded less autofluorescence.
The comparison of antimicrobial effectiveness of contact lens solutions
TLDR
Multipurpose contact lens solutions using similar regimens can show different disinfection abilities, as shown in this study.
