Summary

A 41-year-old myopic female wearing daily disposable lenses, complaining of dry eyes, wished to be refitted with another lens type to provide better comfort. 

She was refitted with Paragon CRT orthokeratology lenses to try to reduce her myopia to a manageable level, and to reduce daytime dry-eye symptoms. After a number of months of fitting, the effect of the orthokeratology was insufficient to provide adequate, consistent acuity all waking hours, and orthokeratology was discontinued. 

Following discontinuation of orthokeratology lenses, she was then fitted with CIBA Vision Focus Night & Day silicone hydrogel lenses on an extended-wear basis.
