Contact lenses have considerably improved the vision of a professional baseball player in America.

Jay Gibbons, who is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers, had complained in the past that his contact lenses were causing him trouble as the one in his left eye kept popping out.

He went to San Francisco this week for an eye test and to get some new lenses, which are not only a different size from his old inefficient ones, but a different prescription too.

"As long as it stays in, I think I'm cured, and I'm optimistic it will," he told ESPN.

"We'll see what happens when I go on the field and dive and play with it in," Mr Gibbons added.

Earlier this week, a post on the Health Articles blog pointed out that there are many different types of contact lenses available to meet a variety of different requirements.
