What is contact allergic conjunctivitis?

Answer: 

Contact allergic conjunctivitis occurs when the contact lens or the proteins in the tear film that binds to the surface of the contact lens cause an allergic response in the conjunctiva.

Patients who suffer this will be offered alternative lens materials and care solutions to overcome the problem.
