In a recent survey sponsored by Bausch + Lomb, more than three times as many of the adults surveyed thought that women looked better without glasses and more than twice as many of the adults surveyed thought that men looked better without glasses.
Maybe that’s why people are increasingly switching to contact lenses or having laser surgery to correct their vision instead of wearing spectacles
A contact lens is a hydrophilic (water-loving) disc that floats on your cornea. Like prescription glasses, a contact lens is specifically shaped to focus light into the retina of your eye (and to fit your eye). But because the lens covers your cornea, it actually corrects your entire field of vision (unlike glasses, which you can see over and under). Contact lenses float on the tears that bathe the eye when you blink – so you want to keep your eye well-moisturised when you’re wearing contact lenses.
Today, Bausch + Lomb offers soft and gas permeable contact lens choices for almost every type of vision correction and lifestyle. From monthly replacement lenses like PureVision 2 HD contact lenses featuring HD Optics for clear, crisp vision that you should demand, to the convenience of SofLens daily disposable lens.
Typical vision problems, such as being shortsighted (myopia) or astigmatic, occur when either the eye or the cornea is not perfectly shaped. Laser surgery permanently changes the curve of the cornea, improving or correcting the eyes' focus. Bausch + Lomb makes a range of innovative surgical products used for this and other surgical procedures.
