Abstract

This study examined the effects of three weekly soft lens cleaners on deposits found on hydrophilic lenses. Lenses cleaned by Allergan Soflens Enzymatic(AE), Alcon Optizyme(AO) and Barnes Hind(BH) weekly cleaner were submitted to Allergan Pharmaceuticals for soft lens deposit identification. Results indicated a reduction of deposits on 30.8% of the lenses cleaned with AO, 41 .0% of those cleaned with AE and 43 .6% of those cleaned with BH.
