A contact lens (also known simply as a contact) is a corrective, cosmetic, or therapeutic lens usually placed on the cornea of the eye. Modern soft contact lenses were invented by the Czech chemists Otto Wichterle and Drahoslav Lím, who also invented the first gel used for their production.
Contact lenses usually serve the same corrective purpose as glasses, but are lightweight and virtually invisible—many commercial lenses are tinted a faint blue to make them more visible when immersed in cleaning and storage solutions. Some cosmetic lenses are deliberately colored to alter the appearance of the eye.
Acuvue was the first disposable contact lens in the world. It allows 1 full week of extended wear! You can wear them without interruption for 7 days, and then throw them away. You don't need to remove them for bed. They are thin and oxygen-permeable, so the eye is not irritated.
Proclear (Proclear Compatibles) contact lenses are monthly disposable soft contacts manufactured by CooperVision. Proclear contact lenses are the only contacts allowed by the FDA to claim: “may provide improved comfort for contact lens wearers who experience mild discomfort or symptoms relating to dryness during lens wear.”
