Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We investigated the effect of high Dk daily wear rigid gas permeable contact lenses on corneal topography. Eight young myopic subjects wore hard contact lenses for 21 days. Corneal topography was monitored using the EyeSys system. It was measured every day during the next 21 days after the fitting. We recorded the corneal radius of curvature at 16 peripheral points approximately 1, 2, 3 and 4 mm along the four principal meridians (nasal, superior, inferior and temporal). Our study showed that daily wear RGP Forum 210 does not produce significant alterations of the corneal curvature as a function of time.
