We compared microbial contamination of contact lens storage cases of asymptomatic contact lens wearers (Group 1; No. = 118; sampled once) and of contact lens wearers with manufacturer's lens-care instructions reinforced (Group 2; No. = 62; sampled three, six, 12, and 20 weeks after initial advisement).
