Title:
Highly Transparent Covalent Mucin Coatings Improve the Wettability and Tribology of Hydrophobic Contact Lenses 
Abstract:
A stable, good coverage of the corneal tissue by the tear film is essential for protecting the eye. Contact lenses, however, constitute a foreign body that separates the tear film into two thinner layers, which are then more vulnerable toward disruption. This effect is even more pronounced if the contact lenses possess an insufficient surface wettability, which, in addition to friction, is suggested to be linked to discomfort and damage to the ocular surface. In this study, we establish covalent...    »
