The disposable soft contact lens (Acuvue, Vistakon Inc, Jackson, Fla), recently licensed for public use by the Food and Drug Administration, has a number of theoretical advantages over the conventional extended-wear soft contact lens. Among these are reduced risks of corneal complications associated with extended-wear soft contact lenses from lens spoilage or poor patient compliance, patient convenience, increased patient comfort, and improved visual acuity. We report two cases of patients with sterile contact infiltrates associated with disposable extended-wear soft contact lenses.
