Hydrophilic Lens Pigmentation-Reply This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract To the Editor. —Since I have no experience with the concurrent use of the Bausch and Lomb lens and epinephrine compounds, I cannot comment on Dr. Weinstock's experience. In a situation very similar to the one he describes, I soaked a Griffin lens in 2% epinephrine hydrochloride (Glaucon) with exposure to air and light and found dark pigmentation of the lens within two weeks. This lens was used to cover the opaque cornea of a brown-eyed girl, with excellent cosmetic appearance. She noted moderate irritation with the lens, and it is planned to refit her with another Griffin lens and allow it to pigment slowly with the topical application of epinephrine. I do not know if daily sterilization would eliminate the pigmentation in the Griffin lens since the patients described wore their lenses continuously. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
