Abstract

In Reply.  —We agree with the comments made by Dr Epstein with regard to the disposable extended-wear contact lenses still posing a potential problem of corneal ulceration in wearers with simple myopia. A few cases of infectious keratitis have been noted at our institution in association with those lenses used for myopic correction. Whether the incidence of microbial keratitis is lower with disposable lenses compared with traditional extended-wear lenses is unproven.
