This book offers a comprehensive examination of the chemistry, properties, and fabrication methods of contact lenses. With ongoing research and development in the field, the updated edition covers new materials, chemistry methods, and fabrication techniques that have emerged in the past decade. Additionally, the book explores the expanding applications of contact lenses, including drug delivery, augmented reality, electronic and smart wearable contact lenses.

The book also delves into simulation methods for contact lenses, including ocular topography parameters, gas permeable lenses, and computerized videokeratography. It thoroughly describes various fabrication methods for contact lenses, such as computer-aided design, colored contact lens fabrication, and decentered contact lens fabrication, as well as specialized processes such as mold processes, reactive ion etching, and electrospinning. The properties of contact lenses and methods for measurement are also discussed, including assessment of cytotoxic effects and the Schirmer tear test.

The final chapter of the book addresses possible medical problems related to contact lenses, such as eye diseases, allergic and toxic reactions, and methods for medical treatment, including disinfection agents.

The intended audience for this book includes chemists, polymer scientists, ophthalmologists, engineers, and other professionals in the contact lens and polymer industries.
