Spherical GP Lenses – FAQ 4

Poor (Acquired) Visual Acuity?

Rule-Outs

Poor surface wettability, lens warpage, oily mucus-like tear layer. Others?

Management

  • See Spherical GP Lenses FAQ 3 for treatment of poor surface wettability.
  • If lens is warped (via radiuscope) advise patient to clean carefully in the palm of the hand (not between the fingers). In addition, if the lens material is a hyperpermeable GP, a lower-Dk, more rigid F-S/A material can be used.
