Drs. Paul Farkas & Adam Farkas along with Gretchyn Bailey, Editor in Chief of Optometry Times visited the recently-opened Contact Lens Museum in Forest Grove, OR!
Curator Patrick Caroline gave us the story of how the museum came about, and then a big tour of the artifacts and the history of contact lenses (Paul of course had a bunch of stories about the stuff we saw… as well as his ingenius idea in the 1980s for using contraceptive sponges to clean contact lenses. Yes, really!)
Anyone who is interested in contact lenses and history should check out the video, and remember: if you have old contact lens related materials, the museum is always interested in donations! Visit their web site:
