To the Editor.
—I read with interest the article by Srinivasan et al in the May Archives (97:892-895, 1979) and congratulate them on adding further to our knowledge of this interesting but enigmatic disorder.I would like to draw attention to a paper read at the 1978 annual meeting of the Ophthalmological Society of the United Kingdom1 in which we described the development of giant papillary conjunctivitis in association with soft and hard lenses, haptic lenses, and ocular prostheses. We subsequently discussed our findings with Dr Allansmith, who has quoted us in her most recent publication.2It has always been a matter of regret that the Transactions of the Ophthalmological Societies of the United Kingdom in its old, single-volume format was difficult for our American colleagues to obtain, since it was the natural place for most British ophthalmologists to publish their original work. The journal is now published
