Medicine-Infused Contacts Making Eye Drops Obsolete?

contact-lens-in-eyeContact lenses that deliver medicine when you need it?

These lenses – which can be corrective or not – release a constant drug concentration for anywhere from 24 hours to 30 days, delivering medicine steadily for as long as the lens is worn.

 

The lenses, for use to treat such ailments as eye inflammation and allergies, are “controlled drug delivery devices that evenly distribute the release of pharmaceuticals to the eye via molecular imprinted drug memory into the lens structure without altering the other lens properties.”

They are touted to be roughly 100 times more effective than putting sporadic eye drops in the eye.

Are you ready for medicated lenses?
