Blind contact lenses are a great option for many people with vision impairments. There are many different types of blind contact lenses available, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks. In this article, we will discuss the different types of blind contact lenses available.
The first type is the corneal blind contact lens. This type of lens is made from a thin, flexible material that covers the entire front surface of the eye. Corneal blind contact lenses are often used to treat people with big visual impairments, such as those who are blind in one eye or have very poor vision in both eyes.
The second type is the scleral blind contact lens. Unlike corneal blind contact lenses, scleral blind contact lenses only cover the white part of the eye (the sclera). Scleral blind contact lenses are often used to treat people with moderate to severe visual impairments, such as those who have blind spots in their vision or are very nearsighted.
The third and final type is the intraocular blind contact lens. Intraocular blind contact lenses are made from a rigid, opaque material that is implanted directly into the eye. Intraocular blind contact lenses are used to treat people with very severe visual impairments, such as those who are completely blind in one or both eyes.
Blind contact lenses can be a great way to improve your vision and quality of life.
