Contacts uncomfortable? Changing lens type or lens care product may help
Date:4/30/2013

Philadelphia, Pa. (May 01, 2013) - If your contact lenses are causing you discomfort, simply switching to a different type of contact lens or lens care product may bring improvement, reports a study, " Effect of Lens and Solution Choice on the Comfort of Contact Lens Wearers", appearing in the May issue of Optometry and Vision Science, official journal of the American Academy of Optometry. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.

"Ocular comfort and symptoms in symptomatic contact lens wearers can be perceptibly improved by switching to an alternative contact lens-lens care product combination," write Daniel Tilia, BOptom (Hons), MOptom, of Brien Holden Vision Institute, Sydney, and colleagues. Their study provides scientific support for a clinical approach commonly recommended by eye care professionals.

Experiment Tests Common Approach to Contact Lens Discomfort

The study included two groups of contact lens wearers: 24 patients who had discomfort related to their contact lenses at least part of the daytypically toward the end of the dayand 13 without symptoms. In random order, patients were assigned to use two different contact lens/lens care product combinations.

Based on previous studies, the combinations were ranked as providing the best (combination 1) and worst (combination 2) performance in terms of end-of-day comfort. Patients used each combination for eight days, without knowledge of which combination they were using. They then rated contact lens comfort and other symptoms during the two periods.
