Most people are not strange to contact lens which is a corrective, cosmetic, or therapeutic lens usually
placed on the cornea of the eye. However, do you know what the intra-ocular contact lens is. Intraocular contact lens is a medical jargon, and it, as its name suggests, is a lens implanted inside the eye,
usually replacing the existing crystalline lens, which will be clouded over by a cataract as people age.
Therefore, when people get their 40s when the natural inborn lens becomes opaque, they can remove
their damaged lens by replacing a prosthetic lens placed in their eyes. This is what American elders
usually do. However, the problem is that those intra-ocular contact lenses have some shortages that

to get reshaped anymore, so on the contrary implanting intra-ocular contact lens is advisable.
