Increased Pseudomonas aeruginosa adhesion following air drying of etafilcon A soft contact lenses.

Abstract

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the changes in bacterial adhesion resulting from air-drying soft contact lenses. METHODS An in vitro study was conducted on four sets of identical, unworn etafilcon A soft contact lenses, air-dried for varying periods of time. These lenses were placed in a bacterial suspension, rinsed, ground, and plated… (More)
