Pt initially experienced debris in the tear film that was remedied with the use of 1-2 drops of viscous AT mixed with preservative saline upon insertion. The patient has adapted to the lenses well without debris and no longer requires the ATs.
 
Pt is extremely pleased with the comfort and vision he experiences with his new scleral lenses.
