The Origins and Management of Contact Lens Discomfort

Contact lens discomfort (CLD) creates significant burdens on patients and dramatically affects industry profitability. Identifying these patients and the factors contributing the condition will inform management decisions. 

The TFOS Workshop classifies CLD by contributory factors into two large baskets: contact lens-related and environmental etiologies (each with four individual subcategories). This article focuses on soft lenses and reviews what we believe we know about contact lens-related factors, the contribution from environmental factors second and offers a rational, evidence-based management approach.
