Abstract

The PuriLens Contacct Lens Cleaning System is a cIeaning and disinfection system that uses ultra violet light and non-preservative solutions to clean contact lenses. A three-phase study was set up to follow soft contact lens wearers as they used the PuriLens System compared to their habitual cleaning system. Participants were followed as they used each of the two systems. Four, subjective surveys were filled out by each participant at various stages of the study. It was concluded that the PurjLens System was more effective at reducing contact fens complaints. Eighty-five percent of participants rated the PuriLens cIeaning system superior to their habitual system.
