- Contact lenses have been widely used as a measure for refractory correction, and provided users with high QOV. However, CL wearers are actually surrounded by severe environments, including air-conditioned offices, VDT operations, and exposure to UV, and such environments are factors to increase CL wearers’ risks of eye disorders. In this seminar, we would like to talk about the impacts on the eyes of CL wearers caused by environment surrounding them, as well as precautions, based on the results of researches concerning the eyes of CL wearers in doing VDT operations, and also on UV protection by CL.
