A contact lens can be summed up as a special lens, which is placed in the eye. These can be summed up as medical devices, which are used to correct vision. These are alternative to the spectacles. If you are concerned regarding your external appearance, you can opt for these special lenses, as they will perform the function of correcting vision without you undergoing a major change in your appearance. The other major factor to be noticed here is that in the case of such lenses there is hardly any scope of any moisture in the form of snow, rain, or sweat to settle on it.

The popularity of Contact lenses can be felt from the fact that its users are increasing with each passing day. Figures tell us that in the year 2004, 125 million people used these lenses. By 2010, the worldwide market of such lenses stood at $6.1 billion. By the year 2015, it is expected that it will reach $11.7 billion. These lenses provide a better peripheral vision. If you are a sportsperson, these are ideally suited for you. Actually if you suffer from keratoconous, or aniseikonia it is better if you wear these lenses instead of the normal spectacles.

Leonardo Da Vinci has been credited with the discovery of these lenses way back in the year 1508. However, more work has been done in this field to make this product more useful and friendly to the customer. As a customer if you wish to have contact lens in your eye you must consult the eye surgeon. Once he has given the green signal you can approach any optical store in the vicinity with the prescription to do the needful. These lens are great and more importantly as mentioned above do not have a major impact on your appearance.
