Abstract

We employed Acuvue (Johnson & Johnson) and SeeQuence (Bausch & Lomb) disposable hydrophilic contact lenses for therapeutic purposes on 39 patients with varying pathology. Concomitant medial therapy was implemented where appropriate. The disposable bandage lens was associated with improved patient symptomatology and objective findings in the majority of cases; complications were infrequent. The disposable hydrophilic lens appears to be a reasonable alternative to traditional hydrophilic bandage lenses.
