PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was to measure the abilities of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus epidermidis strains to adhere to two hydrogel lens materials and measure the effect of a protein-coated surface on the number of adhered bacteria. METHODS Proteins absorbed to contact lenses during sleep were extracted, subjected to sodium dodecylsulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), and probed for the presence of albumin. Bacterial adhesion was measured by… CONTINUE READING
