Vision Through Contact Lenses

Contact lens is a thin clear lens placed on the surface of the eye. That lens makes the ability of vision. Cornea is act as the lens of the eye. The light comes from the object are first focused by the cornea. By adjusting the size of the pupil, the iris control the amount of light entered into the eye. The crystalline lens which placed behind the pupil then focuses the light. Both the cornea and the crystalline lens focused and light reaches to the retina. This converts the light into signals and transmits to brain which control sense of sight. This is the purpose happens behind the vision.

Some artificial contact lenses perform the function of the cornea in the eye when cornea get damaged. They help to correct refractive errors and perform this function by adding or subtracting focusing power to the eye's cornea and lens. Contact lenses provide a safe and effective way to correct vision . Depending on eyes and lifestyle they can offer a good alternative to eyeglasses.
