The study consisted of ll symptomatic full time hard contact lens wearers who were refitted with hydrogel lenses in a corneal re-stabilization program. The purpose of this study was t o determine the degree of problems the eye care practitioner could expect if he or she should choose such a program. The study showed that the hydrogel lens problems encountered depended on the amount of corneal deformation induced by the hard lenses.
