Contact lenses use hydrogel or silicon hydrogel shaped to fit right above the cornea and help eliminate or reduce vision impairments that a patient suffers from. These could include glaucoma, presbyopia, astigmatism, and myopia. At the same time, contact lenses can also be used to change the way the consumer's eyes appear. People may use lenses to change the color as well as the appearance of the eye. In terms of function, contact lenses are becoming highly durable and provide state-of-the-art scratch resistance and comfort.

According to the National Eye Association of the U.S., at least 11 mn of American consumers were suffering from eye related problems including hyperopia and astigmatism. The number of people with vision problems is increasing due to negative changes in lifestyles and an increasing percentage of the geriatric demographic.
