The Chemistry of Sight: Material Innovations in Eye Care and Contact Lenses
In the past, being near or farsighted could profoundly affect one's life. Now it is merely a minor inconvenience. Join us as Heather Sheardown of McMaster University explores the current materials used in contact lenses and how chemists are working to make them more comfortable. Heather will also cover how current technologies can be used to improve ocular health in other areas.
