A clinical evaluation of the wetting angle of six gas permeable contact lenses was made. The wetting angles were measured from actual contact lenses instead of buttons to. better simulate clinical conditions. Each lens was subject to five different conditions. after each condition the wetting angles were measured. We found that five of the six lenses tested had lower wetting angles after being polished than they had coming directly from the lab. The only lens that failed to improve its wetting angle after the polish procedure was the GP II lens.
