Summary: The authors compared results of microbiological tests of two groups of patients wearing contact lenses. Group 1 consisted of 25 patients (50 eyes) who used silicone hydrogel contact lenses in true extended wear mode. Group 2 consisted of 25 patients (50 eyes) who used daily hydrogel contact lenses. The conjunctival sacs of all patients were bacteriologically assessed before and after a month-long wearing of both kinds of contact lenses. The silicone hydrogel contact lenses were used in true extended wear mode, whereas the hydrogel contact lenses were used in daily wear. The microbiological assessment of both kinds of lenses included an in-depth analysis of their bacterial flora and tests concerning the amount of lenses covered by bacteria colonies in both groups.

Keywords: silicone hydrogel contact lenses, hydrogel contact lenses, true extended wear mode, daily wear, bacteriological investigations.
