Contact Us Fort WorthContact Us Weatherford

The most common cause of corneal neovascularization in patients without pre-existing eye disease is contact lens wear.

Contact lens-induced corneal neovascularization

  • A history of overnight contact lens wear
  • Poor compliance with proper contact lens hygiene
  • Poor follow-up care with an eye doctor while wearing contact lenses

Treatment Options

  • Monitor condition if it is mild in severity
  • Modify initiating insult (e.g., different contact lenses, decrease wearing time, etc.)
  • Discontinue contact lens wear if the condition is severe and vision-threatening
