Episode 33: Compliance with Contact Lenses: Strategies for Success

by Dave Kading, OD, Mile Brujic, OD

Overwear of contact lenses can cause deposits and corneal insult in the short term and inflect serious harm like neovascularization, scarring, and infiltrates in the long term. It is important to decipher the difference between what patients say they do and what they really do. Ask patients to bring their lens care products to their appointment and try to objectify patients' subjective wearing experiences. Finally, take the opportunity to discuss the option of daily disposables to enhance compliance, comfort, and safety.
