In the last decades contact lenses have conquered a first place in curing refraction errors as well as treatment option in the medical field especially for corneal diseases. The reason is the advanced technology in cutting design variations. Each type of refraction error can be solved. Complications post Lasik as secondary ectasia are managed by contact lenses as well as keratoconus eyes. There is a new-build strong teamwork with surgery. New and more common today are special designed lenses for presbyopia correction, contact lenses for myopia prevention and corneal bending, the Ortho-K lenses and lenses for amblyopia treatment. The diversity in literature regarding terms are explained. Also shown is the view to global acting companies which explore para-contactological indications like e.g. contact lenses bearing microchips and nanotechnology.

Soft, supple contact lenses made of plastic polymers which interact readily with water molecules. Many types are available, including continuous and extended-wear versions, which are gas-permeable and easily sterilized.
Hydrophilic contact lenses worn for an extended period or permanently.
Lenses designed to be worn on the front surface of the eyeball. (UMDNS, 1999)
An alternative to REFRACTIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURES. A therapeutic procedure for correcting REFRACTIVE ERRORS. It involves wearing CONTACT LENSES designed to force corrective changes to the curvature of the CORNEA that remain after the lenses are removed. The effect is temporary but is maintained by wearing the therapeutic lenses daily, usually during sleep.
Sterile solutions used to clean and disinfect contact lenses.
