Abstract

The management of some ocular surface diseases may be enhanced by the overnight wear of a rigid gas-permeable (RGP) scleral contact lens (ScCL). There is little information of the hypoxic effect of extended RGP ScCL wear. The authors measured the corneal swelling after overnight wear of a rigid gas permeable scleral contact lens in normal subjects.
