Lenses are the most important part of any pair of eyeglasses. While it might be the frame that you notice first, it’s what you don’t see that matters most when considering ophthalmic lenses. For instance, you don’t want to see reflections, distortions, or excessive edge thickness. Choosing the appropriate lens options will not only improve your vision but it will also enhance the appearance of your eyewear, especially in higher prescriptions. .
A contact lens (also known simply as a contact) is a corrective, cosmetic, or therapeutic lens usually placed on the cornea of the eye. Leonardo da Vinci is credited with describing and sketching the first ideas for contact lenses in 1508, but it was more than 300 years later before contact lenses were actually fabricated and worn on the eye. Modern soft contact lenses were invented by the Czech chemist Otto Wichterle and his assistant Drahoslav Lím, who also invented the first gel used for their production.
People choose to wear contact lenses for many reasons, often due to their appearance and practicality. When compared with spectacles, contact lenses are less affected by wet weather, do not steam up, and provide a wider field of vision. They are more suitable for a number of sporting activities.
Keeping your glasses at their best or finding a practical storage solution is something Your Family Eye Doctors takes very seriously. So we’re here to help with accessories made to both protect and complement your new eyeglasses.
