Clinical evaluation of the Wesley-Jessen hydrophilic contact lens - The Durasoft (phemecol) lens

31 March 1976

Abstract

Twenty-seven patients were fitted with the Durasoft contact lens and twenty-five of them were successfully wearing the lenses after three months. Evaluation of the fitting nomogram showed it to be reliable in 60% of the eyes. The lens shows excellent potential as an addition to the hydrophilic contact lens field. Of the total number of eyes that were fitted with the lens, 93% of the eyes were fit successfully when deviations from the nomogram are utilized. These deviations are noted in the discussion section.
