Bandage contact lenses are soft contact lenses that serve the purpose of protection of cornea from friction and irritation caused by mechanical rubbing of eyelids, and other functions including pain relief, healing, sealing, and maintenance of corneal hydration, thereby allowing the cornea to heal in conditions such as an eye injury or corneal diseases. These contact lenses do not have focusing power and are not intended for vision correction. Bandage contact lenses are available in different forms, materials, and wearing schedules, depending upon the application. Recent clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of bandage contact lenses in the treatment of numerous corneal diseases including dry eye. These are also used for drug delivery to the cornea in some cases.
