New Contact Lens Design
May End Daily Hassles

By Justin Lee

Contact lenses that can be safely worn for weeks or even months at a time took a step closer to reality with a novel type of contact lens recently tested at UC Berkeley. A team led by UC Berkeley vision science professor Ken Polse and chemical engineering professor Clayton Radke, also in Berkeley Lab's Earth Sciences Division, working with former vision science graduate student Kimberly Miller, found that placing fenestrations, or holes, in contact lenses significantly improved tear-mixing, thought to be an important safety factor in long-term contact lens wear.
