Abstract: The Morgan Lens* was designed as a sterile disposable scleral contact lens which provides ocular lavage and medication to the conjunctiva and cornea. In this study, eleven chemical burn patients were treated over the past six years, five patients with Morgan Lenses and six patients with “classical syringe irrigation”, and the results were compared. The results of the Morgan Lens group showed shorter admission dates, better visual acuities, and less complications than those of the classical syringe irrigation group.
*Note: the Morgan Lens was originally called the Morgan Therapeutic Lens and this terminology was in use when this article was written.
