Contact Lenses and Blindness

Researchers in the Netherlands report that the incidence of the normally rare eye condition "microbial keratitis" increases dramatically among contact lens users.

The condition is an infection of the cornea that can lead to partial or complete loss of vision in otherwise healthy eyes.

The researchers surveyed patients and opthamologists across the country about the types of contact lenses worn, how long they were worn, and how often microbial keratitis was diagnosed.

They found that soft lenses increased the risk of the condition more than three times compared to the gas-permeable rigid type, but if these soft "extended wear" lenses were worn overnight, the risk rose to 20 times higher.

They condluded that overnight wear should be discouraged. Contact lens users as a group face an 80 times higher risk of the condition than nonusers.
