Abstract:SCL wear induces a marked increase in limbal hyperaemia during open-eye wear, which is not seen either in the no lens situation or when EHD lenses are worn. The pattern of limbal hyperaemia for both the open and closed eyes during EHD lens wear is very similar to that for the no-lens situation. The mechanism whereby SCL induces excess limbal hyperaemia has not been absolutely established, but it may involve local hypoxia.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
