          Abstract

          Non-compliance in contact lens wear poses risks for microbial infection. Understanding the scope and extent of non-compliance behaviour is vital for eye care practitioners in deciding which aspect of lens care is critical when consulting patients. A survey was done to assess the level and scope of non-compliance behaviour among 66 young contact lens wearers. Overall, more than half of the participants (52%) did not comply with lens wear and care regimens. The most non-compliant behaviour was the lens cleaning procedure (59%). Eye care practitioners need to establish creative guidelines to improve compliance among the young lens wearers.
