Caption: Contact lens production, artwork. Contact lenses are artificial lenses designed to be worn directly on the surface of the eye. There are a variety of methods for producing them, with the one shown here involving placing drops of liquid (silicone or a similar polymer for soft contact lenses) in a mold. This is then either spun at high speeds or pressure is applied to produce the desired shape. Some contact lenses are ground or cut with a lathe or laser.
