Forty-two aphakic eyes of 37 patients were fitted with oxygen-permeable silicone rubber corneal contact lenses. Thirty-four eyes had the lens after two to 11 months of continuous use. Visual results, comfort, and patient acceptance were good, but the deposition of mucus on the lenses remains a problem.
