eye care services in kansas city

A contact lens is a corrective, cosmetic, or therapeutic lens placed on the cornea of the eye. Leonardo da Vinci is credited with describing and sketching the first ideas for contact lenses in 1508, but it was more than 400 years later before contact lenses were actually fabricated and worn on the eye.

Below we've collected a library of contact lens related information. We invite you to browse these pages to  better understand how your contact lenses work, the types of lenses out there and how contacts can help with various vision conditions. 

  • An overview of how the eye works, protecting your eyes, a glossary of eye care terms, and information about healthy sight. These are all important topics that affect your vision whether a contact lens wearer or not. 
  • Contact lenses can be classified in one of three ways: Function, Material or Replacement Schedule. Learn about the many types of contexts available on the market today.
