Pseudomonas aeruginosa keratitis in an atopic silicone hydrogel lens wearer with rosacea.

Eye Contact Lens. 2005 Nov;31(6):254-6

Authors: Robertson DM, Cavanagh HD

PURPOSE: This case report documents Pseudomonas aeruginosa corneal infection associated with daily wear of a silicone contact lens in a patient who also had bilateral, preexisting biomicroscopic findings of ocular rosacea, seborrheic blepharitis, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, and chronic punctate corneal epitheliopathy. CONCLUSIONS: Collectively, these problems produce increased risk of infection for wear of any contact lens; and underscore the importance of proper patient selection, education and post-fit monitoring even when hyper-oxygen transmitting silicone hydrogels are utilized.
