Good Rotational Recovery


Poor Rotational Recovery

Video Background

Good rotational recovery - The toric lens was inserted on the eye and allowed to settle for 3 minutes. The video begins just as the eye doctor rotates the lens temporally by 45 degrees. Over the following 60 seconds the rotation recovery is monitored. This video shows a toric contact lens that has good rotational recovery. Initially, there is obvious re-orientation followed by a slower phase of re-orientation as the lens comes back to the original settling position.

Poor rotational recovery - The toric lens was inserted on the eye and allowed to settle for 3 minutes. The video begins just as the eye doctor rotates the lens temporally by 45 degrees. Over the following 60 seconds the rotation recovery is monitored. This video shows a toric contact lens that has poor rotational recovery. The lens creeps back towards it's original settling position but does not achieve good recovery within the 60 seconds of the test.
