Contact lenses "have come a long way"

The contact lens industry has come a long way since the products were initially developed and can now correct almost any vision problem, one expert has observed.

According to optometrist Nick Dash, new lenses help correct astigmatism and age-related reading issues, whilst keeping the eyes healthy and allowing people to see better than ever before.

He advised people who have any concerns about contact lenses to bear in mind that any risks can be minimised by the appropriate use of high quality lenses, and responding quickly to issues, should they arise.

"Most contact lens-related problems can be easily resolved with modern lenses and the ever expanding range of new and improved designs, material and solutions," Mr Dash explained.

It comes after Johnson & Johnson Vision Care recently announced a new daily disposable soft toric contact lens for people with astigmatism.

According to the manufacturer, its 1-Day Acuvue Moist Contact Lenses for Astigmatism are designed to alleviate symptoms for people suffering from the common vision problem.
