Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Contact lens-related keratitis has been the subject of a number of rigorous epidemiologic studies over the past 20 years. This article summarizes data from such studies that address incidence and risk factors for this condition. Estimates of risk and associated predisposing factors have been quite consistent over time, geography and study design.
