About Contact Lens Practice

Certificate Program in Contact Lens Practice is a new addition to our curriculum for medical field enthusiasts. A contact lens is a synthetic lens that rests on the surface of the eye and corrects vision disorders such as long-sightedness, short-sightedness, presbyopia (lens inability to focus), and astigmatism (blurred vision). Contact lenses are worn for a variety of reasons. For some vision issues, contact lenses may be preferable to spectacles. Changes in temperature or perspiration do not cause contact lenses to fog, and rain has no effect on them.
Contact lenses are ocular prosthetic devices worn by approximately 150 million individuals throughout the world for vision correction, aesthetic, and therapeutic purposes. They were invented almost a century ago and were first made of glass, then hard plastic.
