Top tips and hacks to get over your fear of Contact Lenses

With millions of wearers around the world, contact lenses are one of the most trusted and easiest-to-use methods of vision correction. And with the comfort and convenience they provide, it's easy to see why many of us prefer reaching for our contacts instead of our glasses. 

However, despite being loved by many for their ease and convenience, the process of inserting and removing contact lenses can be a tricky task - even feared by some, with many avoiding wearing them completely due to horror stories often featured in the media. 

What is base curve and diameter on contact lenses?

Every type of contact lens, no matter the style or brand, will have measurements that dictate the size and shape of the lens. These are called base curve and diameter. On your prescription or lens packaging, the base curve is often labelled BC or BOZR (base optic zone radius), and the diameter is usually displayed as DIA. These measurements are essential to ensure your contact lens fits snugly on your eye and allows for a comfortable wearing experience.
