Contact Lens: How to focus light 1mm away

  1. Dec 20, 2009 #1
    So, I've been wondering. Anyone know what shape/prescription a contact lens would have to be in order for an eye to be able to focus on something 1mm away (assuming the distance of focus in the eye is around 4 cm)? Does it have to do with focal length of the lens?
