In recent years a growing list of contact lens-associated problems have been recognized. Nine patients are reported with the common finding of pseudodendrites, which in three instances had been confused with Herpes simplex keratitis. All patients in this study were daily soft contact lens wearers and used preserved lens-care solutions. Recognition of pseudodendrites will direct the practitioner to an appropriate diagnosis and treatment of this reversible corneal lesion.
