  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 We designed two types of new contact lenses to be used during vitreous surgery. One is the floating contact lens made of PMMA with a hydrophilic surface which enables surgery under wettable conditions. The other is an infusion contact lens, made of quartz, with an illumination system which allows observation of the fundus without creating scleral wound. The illumination is located either at a fixed position of the contact lens or at a variable position.
