Contacts are not for everyone

DISC lens is a multizone bifocal soft contact lens.

Contacts are not for everyone

  Optical defocus can be incorporated into widely accepted forms of contact lens to provide clear and comfortable vision while myopia is being controlled.  

Prof. To Chi-ho

  I am glad that after years of hard work, research on the DISC lens eventually bears fruit through successful commercialisation, benefitting children in need with real products.  

Prof. Carly Lam

Despite the success of the DISC lens, they are not suitable for everyone. For some it is a matter of choice, while those with particularly dry or sensitive eyes can find contact lenses uncomfortable to wear. They are also not recommended for those who are prone to eye infections, and younger children in particular may find it difficult to comply with the need for strict hygiene.
