|Contact Lens Sunglasses for Athletes|
It looks to me like they're thinking of marketing tinted contact lenses that help block out bright light for athletes. I think it's a neat idea, and the tinting makes the players look scary, too.
The thing I don't get is the following quote from the article:
However, leading optometrists today warned that use of the lenses would need to be tightly controlled. "Hygiene would be a worry here," said Judith Morris, a contact lens expert at City University.
"If you use these lenses for one match a week, then store them in a case, there could be problems. And obviously they would absolutely have to be fitted professionally."
Tightly controlled contact lenses? I guess since Britain tightly controls everything else, why not contact lenses too?
With my contacts, I was checked once at the optometrist who told me what size I needed, then I could go out and buy my prescription wherever I wanted. Why would nonprescription contacts be any different?
