A South Korean manufacturer of coloured contact lenses, Geo Medical, has started to offer fully customised contact lenses. The lenses can be designed by customers, who can also choose from a wide variety of pre-designed elements and arrange them according to their wishes.
By taking part in the design process, customers can obtain contact lenses that are exactly what they were looking for. It is not a problem, for instance, to create ‘vampire’ or ‘zombie’ contacts, which do not necessarily have to look just like those seen on TV or at the cinema, as it is possible to add various personal elements like logos or signatures to them.
In order to make their contact lenses safer and more comfortable, Geo Medical has invested large amounts of money in research and development. The company’s patented technologies allow it to produce lenses with high oxygen permeability and able to retain moisture for a long time. As a result, Geo Medical’s products have won a number of certificates (e.g. ISO 13485 / CE, FDA 510k, KGMP) and the company is constantly expanding their global availability.
