Conjunctiva in asymptomatic contact lens wearers.

Biopsy specimens of the upper tarsal conjunctiva from 11 asymptomatic, biomicroscopically normal contact lens wearers (five hard and six soft) were studied by scanning electron microscopy. The conjunctiva in lens wearers showed areas of normal epithelial cell surfaces interspersed among areas of altered cells. The altered cell surfaces were characterized by… CONTINUE READING
