What are the contact lenses?
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 contact lenses are much more than small glass lenses that fit onto your eyes. They do, however, function much like regular 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 contact lenses have over glasses.
Types of contact lenses
Not all contact lenses are the same. They are available in different forms, designed to meet different purposes. These forms can range from their "modality," or how often you change the contact lenses-say, daily or monthly. They also fit different needs, such as contact lenses for astigmatism, contact lenses for nearsightedness, and more.
Contact lenses come in different strengths or "diopters." If you wear contact lenses, take a look at their box or your prescription. You'll see either plus or minus signs, followed by numbers. Without getting too in-depth, these convey the shape of the lenses. Different shapes correct different vision problems.
