How It’s Made – Contact Lenses!

I have to admit – I have never been able to stick a contact lens on my own eye.  Therefore, I just don’t try to wear them!

The process of making a contact lens is pretty neat, actually – 15 steps in total (minus a hydrating procedure that takes about a day) can be preformed in about 15-20 minutes total.  Pretty interesting!  The computerized, mechanized aspect of the contact lens manufacturing is exactly how you’d imagine it to be – extremely precise.

Check out this video from the How It’s Made (JimOnLight.com LIGHT related) series on making these contact lenses.  Very interesting!

Also, not to be outdone, the making of SPECTACLES!
