Episode 45: Inflammation and Contact Lenses

Most contact lens complications are secondary to inflammation and are preventable. For example, CLARE is often associated with sleeping in contact lenses and GPC can be induced by debris on the lens. Steroids can be used to decrease a patient's inflammatory response, but then a movement to single-use lenses is recommended to avoid future problems that over-wear or contact lens solutions may cause.
