Contact Lens Complications
For a great summary of Corneal Infiltrative Complications Associated With Contact Lens Wear see this webpage in Review of Optometry Online.
A number of distinct sterile keratitis entities with differing clinical presentations are discussed, including CLPU, CLARE, infiltrative keratitis (IK), asymptomatic infiltrative keratitis (AIK), and asymptomatic infiltrates (AI). Careful examination techniques are necessary to make an appropriate differential and tentative diagnosis of these relatively benign conditions, as well as to distinguish them from the rarer but potentially sight-threatening infiltrative ulceration known as microbial keratitis (MK).
