Prosthetic contact lenses are special contact lenses that are designed to improve the appearance of people with certain eye conditions, such as those caused by injury, disease, or congenital defects. These lenses can be used to correct visual impairments, including blindness, cataracts, and corneal scarring.
Prosthetic contact lenses are designed to improve the appearance of the eye, not to correct vision. While some prosthetic contact lenses may have a transparent area to allow for some vision, they are not typically intended to be worn for the purpose of seeing clearly.
The main function of prosthetic contact lenses is to improve the appearance of the eye for people who have certain eye conditions that affect their appearance. In addition, prosthetic contact lenses can be used to protect the eye, such as covering a damaged cornea or a missing iris.
