A new contact lens will be able to deliver anesthetic over an extended time in uniform doses, providing better comfort for post-eye surgery patients.
The lenses will be created specifically with laser eye surgery patients in mind. The dosing them with vitamin E will extend the time of release of 3 common anesthetics from 2 hours to a whole day. The vitamin E will also function as a barrier, keeping the medication on the eye.
