Over a century of substantial research and development has gone into making contact lenses a very comfortable and convenient form of vision correction. New materials and designs mean that almost everyone today can wear contact lenses successfully. People of all ages can be fitted with contact lenses although special care is needed for the very young and elderly. As contact lenses are worn on the eye there is nothing to obstruct your peripheral vision in the way spectacle frames can. Also the lens moves with your eyes so that you are always looking through the centre of the lens where vision is best. Common sight defects such as short sightedness and long sightedness are easily corrected with contact lenses. But now conditions such as astigmatism and presbyopia can also be very effectively treated with contact lenses.
