PURPOSE To compare silicone-hydrogel, poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA), and phosphorylcholine-coated (PC-C) contact lenses in terms of their susceptibility to biofilm formation by Staphylococcus epidermidis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. DESIGN Laboratory investigation. METHODS Biofilm formation on colonized test lenses was evaluated with confocal… CONTINUE READING
