Color vision deficiency, which is also know as color blindness affects 8% of males and 0.5% of females in the world. This inherited ocular disorder brings a lot of inconvience to patients’ life. In this study, gold nanoparticles are integrated into contact lens material, thus forming nanocomposite contact lenses targeted for red−green CVD application. Three distinct sets of nanoparticles will be characterized and incorporated with PSS, and their resulting optical and material properties will be assessed. Besides, In addition, a comprehensive understanding of gold nanoparticles should be provided. Knowing its unique optical properties and causes. Learn to prepare different sizes of plasmonic nanoparticles and their dispersion in different solutions
