Why do people wear contact lenses?

Contact lenses are an alternative to spectacles for correcting vision. There are many reasons why people may prefer to wear contact lenses instead of glasses, for example jobs or hobbies.

This module will explore why people wear contact lenses and introduce the different types of lenses that are available in terms of wearing schedules, materials and prescriptions. In addition, it will look at some of the common barriers to contact lens wear, and how we can help patients to better understand contact lenses.
