Sight threatening complications as a result of soft or RGP lens wear are, thankfully, rare events. On the other hand, there are a large number of less serious complications of contact lens wear which can result in the lenses performing sub-optimally. These can impact on the appearance of the eye or cause problems with vision or comfort resulting in patient dissatisfaction and increasing the likelihood of cessation of lens wear. Eye care practitioners must be able to identify these complications and manage them appropriately.
