Abstract

Goldmann tonometry was used to quantify pressure required to induce the anterior corneal mosaic pattern in 51 subjects. Sixteen subjects divided into high and low groups based on the pressure readings were fit with Fluoroperm 60 rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses and followed for 3 months. Evaluation of keratometry, 3-9 staining, subjective comfort and vision, photoelectric keratoscope distortion and pachometry was performed . I The study attempted to determine if the ease of inducing the mosaic pattern was related to the ability of subjects to wear RGP contact lenses successfully. Statistical analysis showed no significant difference between the groups.
