Default Catteni Contacts

I've been wondering...
How would the catteni "contact lenses" work?
If both the pupil and iris were covered, could people see very well or at all?
And is the material they are made of ever mentioned?

You know, I can't recall anything about the material. As for the contacts well they're yellow, right? I once looked through yellow glasses lenses, and they made everything look yellow-toned.


I kind of think of them like the contacts Brent Spiner wore on TNG as Data, though that's probably wrong....

I thought they were just yellow-tinted contact lenses. They must have found something on one of the ships to make them - they could hardly go from blowing wavy glass to making real contact lenses.

I always pictured yellow irises, and therefore anything else is a typo!

heheh.
i get really wierd when i read things wrong, or just don't like it. i went through about 5 differnt pronunciations of petiron before i looked it up in the DLG. also with Zainal, before i forced myself to read the spelling. i found the quote in the book though:

"She would never get used to such butter-colored pupils with black irises"
it's page six, in my paperback edition.

If you wear yellow tinted glasses, when you take them off, things turn pink.
