Contact-lens-induced Corneal Problems

Contact-lens-induced Corneal Problems

Dead cells never come back.

Contact lenses are inserted directly into your eyes. Not matter what material they are made of, as they come in direct contact with the eyes, they can cause strain on the eyes. Lack of oxygen to the cornea decreases the number of cells. Once those cells are lost, they are lost forever.

Corneal endothelium examination

We examine the endothelial cells of the cornea and provide medical advice.

The cornea is a transparent tissue that gets its oxygen from tears. Aging and the use of contact lenses can impair the oxygen supply to the cornea, which in turn causes cells (endothelial cells) to decrease. The normal density of cells is between approximately 2,500 and 3,000 per mm22.
