1. A contact lens of soft, pliable opthalmic plastic material, said lens when in its dehydrated state having a spherical back surface which in its hydrated state conforms to the corneal curvature of the wearer'"'"'s eye and, when in its dehydrated state, having an aspheric front surface which is a surface of revolution of polar coordinate form, having an asphericity which is a function of (n) {sin(a)} where (a) is the polar angle, and (n) is a radial offset of a tool-controlling circular surface and is equal to at least about 0.013 mm.
