Figure 1. Experimental groups and setting of contact lens protection. A: Daily ultraviolet B (UVB) light exposure (indicated by arrows) was performed from day 1 to day 7, with or without weekly
disposable soft hydrogel contact lenses, respectively. No contact lens was given to the UVB group or the blank control group.
B: The diagrammatic illustration shows a mouse being anesthetized with an eye exposed to UVB and covered by a contact lens.
C: An actual experimental preparation of mouse eyes covered with contact lenses is demonstrated.
