Contact Lenses News and Research

RSS
Contact lenses are explicitly designed optical devices that can be worn directly on the cornea of the eye.

Contact lenses increase or decrease the focusing potential of the cornea, and thereby directly project light onto the retina and aid in treating refractive errors.
