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 ( LIGHT related) series on making these contact lenses.  Very interesting!

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