Abstract: Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) is most commonly found in contact lens wearers with poor lens care hygiene. Recent reports have indicated an increase in cases of AK in the United States associated with the use of Complete MoisturePlus multipurpose solution. This association may not appear explainable by differences in Acanthamoeba kill rates among multipurpose solutions. In this study the physiologic response of Acanthamoeba trophozoites to incubation in various contact lens solutions was investigated.
