Comparison of the effects of different lens-cleaning solutions on the protein profiles of human conjunctival cells

Bell K et al. – Authors were able to demonstrate that Complete shows very little effect on the protein profiles of conjunctival cells in comparison to Opti–Free, where the cells showed very large protein profile changes, and apoptosis and necrosis of the cells was increased. These results are in concordance to clinical studies showing that the use of Complete solution made the tear film proteins similar to those of people not wearing contact lenses. Therefore, authors believe that Complete is less aggressive and should provoke fewer side–effects, such as dry eye syndrome, for the users.
