Abstract

In cases of conjunctivitis associated with the use of soft lenses, delayed hypersensitivity to disinfecting components of the used soft lens liquids has to be considered. In 7/15 patients, positive patch test reactions to merthiolate, chlorhexidine or the soaking solutions were observed. The significance of these findings is discussed.
