TYPES OF CONTACT LENSES
CONTACT LENSES HISTORY
SOFT CONTACT LENSES
In 1971, the soft contact lens was officially introduced, ushering in a new era apart from the hard contact lenses of the past.
DAILY CONTACT LENSES
The next major breakthrough in contact lens technology came in 1988 when the first disposable lenses were launched. It would then take eight years to introduce daily disposable contact lenses, or “dailies,” in 1996.
SILICONE HYDROGEL CONTACT LENSES
Now we have silicone hydrogel lenses, which offer greater comfort, and can be worn for longer periods of time in comparison to their predecessors.
WHAT DO CONTACT LENSES DO?
Contact lenses are small prescription lenses, worn in “contact” with the eye. They are designed to correct refractive errors and maintain ocular health. They float on the tear film layer on the surface of the cornea.
Modern contacts are much more than small eye glass lenses that fit onto your eyes. They do, however, function much like regular eye glasses—refracting and focusing light so that objects appear clearly. Since the lenses stick to the tear fluid on your eye surface, they move naturally with you. This is but one advantage contacts have over glasses.
