Preparation, characterization and antimicrobial study of a hydrogel (soft contact lens) material impregnated with silver nanoparticles.

Abstract

PURPOSE Contact lenses that incorporate antimicrobial properties may reduce the risk for microbial-associated adverse events for lens wearers. The aim of this study was to assess the antimicrobial effects of silver nanoparticles (NP) when impregnated in a hydrogel material. METHODS Hydrogel disks, used as a proxy for soft contact lenses, were prepared… (More)
