Routine evaluation in asymptomatic soft CL wearers
To document complications diagnosed when subjectively successful planned replacement soft CL patients are evaluated to renew their existing prescriptions, Chen et al conducted this prospective, cross-sectional, non-interventional study. Asymptomatic soft CL patients who presented at two centers, for routine CL examination to renew existing prescriptions, were evaluated and complications were documented. Over half of the 202 patients (52%) exhibited at least one undiagnosed health complication and, of those, 70% were CL driven. The high complication rate in asymptomatic lens wearers suggests that all CL wearers require routine professional evaluation.
