A contact lens is a medical device used for cosmetic and therapeutic reasons, primarily for vision correction. Contact lens provides enhanced peripheral vision as it does not accumulate moisture from the atmosphere. The vast variety and affordability of contact lens make it a common lifestyle product. Contact lens provides high compatibility as it can be worn along with other eye wear choices such as sunglasses. Lenses offer clear peripheral and all around vision, eliminating glare. Hence contact lenses are more comfortable than spectacles. Corrective contact lens is widely used as it corrects refractive errors efficiently, compensates for visual deficiencies, and typically improves conditions such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. Owing to the computer controlled, automated production of contact lenses with the help of cast molding technology, higher accuracy and quality are assured in the final product. Contact lenses are classified based on their material, wear schedule, and primary function into multifocal contact lens, monovision, and corrective contact lenses.
