Contact lens , or simply contacts , are thin lenses placed directly on the surface of the eyes. Contact lenses are ocular prosthetic devices used by over million people worldwide,  and they can be worn to correct vision or for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons. People choose to wear contact lenses for many reasons. When compared with spectacles, contact lenses typically provide better peripheral vision , and do not collect moisture from rain, snow, condensation, etc. This can make them preferable for sports and other outdoor activities. Contact lens wearers can also wear sunglasses, goggles, or other eyewear of their choice without having to fit them with prescription lenses or worry about compatibility with glasses. Additionally, there are conditions such as keratoconus and aniseikonia that are typically corrected better with contact lenses than with glasses.
Contact Lenses in Ophthalmic Practice
To evaluate the impact of soft contact lens eye-fit on optical power by computational modelling and to produce correction maps for reversing this impact during the design process. Lens optical zone power changes were calculated through computational light-ray tracing methods following each simulation. Spherical lenses demonstrated similar behaviour, however with some positive EPC over the power range from D to D for spherical power SPH lenses. EPC trends, along with minimum and maximum power, generally increased negatively as nominal lens prescription increased positively. Contact lens base curve selection affected the assessed effective power change for both spherical and toric lenses.

Even with the advances in intraocular lens technology and the growing diversity of refractive surgery techniques, the role of contact lenses in ophthalmic practice has only increased. This is due in part to the great strides in materials, technology, expanding applications both refractive and therapeutic for contact lenses, and the clear recognition that contact lenses will always be an important tool for the ophthalmologist. With the fitting of contact lenses as a medical art, requiring a thorough understanding of anatomy, physiology and optics of the eye, this practice is formulaic only in part.
Four different types of soft contact lenses were randomly fitted to both eyes of each subject on two separate visits. UL-OCT imaged each lens in vitro and the ocular surface of a physical model eye. Mismatches between the lens and the ocular surface were simulated based on UL-OCT images of the in vitro lenses and the model eye. The existence of tear film gaps and touching points were predicted in the simulation.

Purpose : To evaluate the visual performance and optical quality of a standardized asymmetric soft contact lens SCL used for correction of higher-order aberrations HOAs in eyes with keratoconus. Methods : We included 30 eyes 26 patients with keratoconus average K: The patients were subjected to corneal tomography, aberrometry, measurements of manifest refraction and visual acuity VA , and visual analog scale VAS assessments.
