Extended wear soft contact lenses in the treatment of strabismic amblyopia

, : Extended wear soft contact lenses in the treatment of strabismic amblyopia. Acta Ophthalmologica 59(4): 546-551

Seventeen amblyopic children between 4-9 yr were fitted with high power plus extended wear soft contact lenses (Scanlens 24 h, Duragel 75) for optical occlusion of strabismic amblyopia. Amblyopia and eccentric fixation responded quickly to treatment between 2-13 wk. Only 1 patient failed to reach 6/9, and 11 patients achieved equal visual acuity. Of 10 patients with eccentric fixation, 2 remained eccentric after treatment. The contact lenses were tolerated by the children. Among the problems, concerning the use of extended wear soft contact lenses, should be mentioned fitting problems, deposits, loss of lenses (1 child needed 4 lenses) and occurrence of conjunctivitis (5 eyes). No major infections were seen. A 1 yr follow-up showed that almost all the children needed renewed occlusion treatment. Contact lens occlusion should be continued for 3 mo.
