Ultrastructural features of contact lens-induced deep corneal neovascularization and associated stromal leukocytes.

Abstract

Deep stromal vascularization was observed in corneas of four cynomolgus monkeys after extended monocular hydrogel contact lens wear. Keratocytes and extravascular leukocytes, including macrophages, lymphocytes, and in one case, neutrophils, were associated with the vessels in three monkeys. Vessel regression was observed in some animals, but not when lens… (More)
