Abstract Thirty-three eyes of 25 patients with previously unrelieved recurrent erosion syndrome were treated with soft contact lenses. Marked improvement was obtained in 16 cases, moderate in 6, and 11 patients showed no improvement. Patients with visible anterior membrane dystrophies and spontaneous recurrent erosion syndrome responded best. Patients with posttraumatic recurrent erosion syndrome and with recurrent erosion syndrome and with recurrent erosion syndrome associated with aphakic corneal edema did poorly. In addition to having less frequent episodes of stabbing pain, those patients who were improved also had less minor irritation and some had improved vision.
