The contact lenses. In contact-lens-induced corneal neovascularization, vessel lumina are approximately 15–80 μm in diameter and contain erythrocytes and sometimes leukocytes. Numerous extravascular leukocytes are observed around blood vessels, and the surrounding stromal lamellae are disorganized and separated with lines of keratocytes lying between them.

The overlying corneal epithelium. Of interest, reports of contact lens related vascularization of the normally avascular clear cornea have been documented since at least (Lauber ).
