Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We evaluated the need for additional lubrication in 200 consecutive patients using an ocular prosthesis. Of these patients, 154 (77%) required no additional lubrication, while 46 patients (23%) required supplemental lubrication. Enuclene, the only product manufactured specifically for the patient with an ocular prosthesis, has been reported by the majority of our patients to be inadequate for comfort and wearability. Other solutions for contact lens use were compared with Enuclene and found to be far superior by patients using an ocular prosthesis.
