Trends in contact lens-associated corneal ulcers



Trends in contact lens-associated corneal ulcers



Cornea 15(6): 566-570



Charts of 320 patients with corneal ulcers seen by the Cornea Service of Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, from 1 July 1992 to 30 June 1995 were reviewed retrospectively. Of these cases, 96 (30%) were associated with contact lens use. Ulcers in contact lens users accounted for 36% of cases in the last 6 months of 1992 and all of 1993, 20% of cases in 1994, and 29% in the first 6 months of 1995.
