by an inflammation of the conjunctivitis with corneal involvement and tissue remodelling including papillae formation. It was first described by Arlt in 1846 who reported 3 cases of perilimbal swelling in young patients. The association with springtime (vernal) reflects the seasonal increase in signs and symptoms of the condition, particularly the high prevalence in hot, arid environments. Affected individuals have disease flares frequently during spring months, but can have signs and symptoms year round (...) in line with the Note for Guidance on non-clinical local tolerance testing on medicinal products (CPMP/SWP/2145/00). Two of these studies used a CsA formulation with BAK and two used the CKC formulation. Briefly, 0.25, 0.5 and 1 mg/ml CsA eye drops were well tolerated in rabbits receiving multiple daily instillations (50 µL) at 4-hour and 90-minute intervals for 28 days. Slight signs of irritation mainly in nictitans membrane and eyelids were noted in all treated animals, as well as in animals

64. Conjunctivitis medicamentosa

Conjunctivitis medicamentosa is a condition in which a drug applied to the eye as drops or ointment, a cosmetic or some other substance reaching the eye surface, causes an irritative or allergic reaction. Some drugs are more likely than others to create this problem, including some antiglaucoma agents and some antibiotics. It can also be caused by preservatives in the medication. The patient notices redness, stinging or burning and possibly eyelid swelling and/or blurred vision. Once recognised (...) , but individual susceptibility to conjunctivitis medicamentosa varies widely Symptoms Initial improvement in the original condition requiring treatment Then apparent deterioration despite proper compliance with regimen Irritation, ocular pain, stinging, burning, photophobia Ocular redness Lid swelling Blurred vision Signs Diffuse punctate staining of cornea and/or conjunctiva Chronic epithelial defects (due to toxic inhibition of epithelial healing) Sometimes: corneal oedema pseudodendrites disciform stromal

80. CL-associated conditions (CLAPC)

summary Contact lens-associated papillary conjunctivitis (CLAPC) is an inflammatory condition affecting the transparent membrane which lines the back of the upper eyelid (tarsal conjunctiva). It can occur in people wearing soft or rigid contact lenses or an ocular prosthesis (artificial eye). People suffering from this condition experience eye irritation, which may lead them to abandon contact lens wear. The vision may be blurred intermittently. The eyes are often red and the underside of the upper (...) lid shows minute cobblestone-like swellings called papillae. Treatment for CLAPC initially consists of improving contact lens hygiene and replacing lenses more frequently. Eye drops such as anti-histamines or mast cell stabilisers are often required to relieve symptoms and improve clinical signs. In more severe cases it may be necessary to use steroid eye drops for short periods.
