Millions and millions around the world wear contact lenses, though you might not know it just by looking at these people. If you’re not familiar with contact lenses, let’s introduce you to these incognito but common little helpers.
What is a contact lens?
A contact lens is a thin, curved lens placed on the film of tears that covers the surface of your eye. The lens itself is naturally clear, but is often given the slightest tinge of color to make them easier for wearers to handle. Today’s contact lenses are either hard or soft. Most people wear the latter form now, but it wasn’t too long ago that contact lenses were even glass blown!
