Ocular drug delivery through hydrogel contact lenses has great potential for the treatment of ocular diseases. Previous studies showed that the loading of lipophilic vitamin E to silicone-hydrogel contact lenses was beneficial in ocular drug delivery. We hypothesized that vitamin E loading to another type of popular hydrogel contact lenses, pHEMA-hydrogel contact lenses, improves ocular drug delivery by increasing the drug loading or the duration of drug release. Loading of vitamin E to pHEMA… Expand

Extended release of dexamethasone from silicone-hydrogel contact lenses containing vitamin E.
TLDR
A novel approach of increasing the release duration of dexamethasone (DX) from commercial contact lenses by loading Vitamin E into the lenses by soaking the lenses in Vitamin E-ethanol solution followed by ethanol removal through evaporation is explored. Expand
Extended delivery of hydrophilic drugs from silicone-hydrogel contact lenses containing vitamin E diffusion barriers.
TLDR
Results show that the increase in release duration is quadratic in Vitamin E loading, which is consistent with proposed mathematical models and has a beneficial effect of blocking UV radiation which will reduce the corneal damage due to UV light. Expand
Transport of topical anesthetics in vitamin E loaded silicone hydrogel contact lenses.
TLDR
The vitamin E loaded silicone contact lens can provide continuous anesthetics release for about 1-7 days, depending on the method of drug loading in the lenses, and thus could be very useful for postoperative pain control after corneal surgery such as the photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) procedure for vision correction.

Polymeric hydrogels for contact lens-based ophthalmic drug delivery systems, their advantages and drawbacks are critically analyzed in this review. Expand
Glaucoma therapy by extended release of timolol from nanoparticle loaded silicone-hydrogel contact lenses.
TLDR
Nanoparticle incorporation in the silicone hydrogels results in reduction in ion and oxygen permeabilities, and an increase in modulus, and the impact on each of these properties is proportional to the particle loading, which can deliver timolol at therapeutic doses for about a month at room temperature, with a minimal impact on critical lens properties.

Extended drug delivery by contact lenses for glaucoma therapy.
TLDR
The in vivo studies showed that IOP reduction from baseline by pure contact lens on daily basis was comparable with that by eye drops but with only 20% of drug dose, which suggested higher drug bioavailability for contact lenses. Expand
