Uses of Contact lenses

Contact lenses are thin, curved plastic disks that cover the cornea and designed especially for vision correction. Just as drops of water cling to the surface of the glass due to the surface tension, contact lenses too, adhere to the film of tears over the cornea.

Contact lenses are a safe and effective way to correct vision. They are also used for several other purposes today, such as theatrical effects and cosmetic enhancement for the eyes. Whatever the use, they should be worn under proper supervision and with care. They are also a good alternative to eyeglasses, depending on the damage to your eyes, your prescription and your lifestyle.
