These lenses are made of soft, gel-like, flexible plastics. They are comfortable to wear and most patients adjust to them easily. The lenses must be replaced on a prescribed basis — monthly, bi-weekly, or daily. Lifestyle, prescription, and eye shape will help determine which type is best for you. Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they drape over the front surface of the eye making them hard to dislodge. Soft lenses can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism.
Silicone hydrogels are soft contact lenses that have especially high oxygen permeability. They are the most common lens materials used today. With these lenses, patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably while keeping their eyes healthy.
Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses
GP lenses are made from firm plastic material that is permeable to oxygen. The lenses hold their own shape and therefore, provide very sharp vision correction, especially for some types of astigmatism. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle. GP lenses require an initial adaptation period. Most patients find the lenses very comfortable after that adaptation.
Large diameter GP lenses are called scleral lenses because they are large enough to rest on the white part of the eye, the sclera. These lenses can be beneficial for patients with irregular corneas or extreme dry eye.
In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction. There are many different lens designs available to help meet your vision demands. Multifocal lenses can also be used to help slow the progression of nearsightedness in children.
Hybrid lenses consist of a gas permeable center with a soft lens skirt. They provide the vision benefits of a gas permeable lens with the comfort of a soft lens. Hybrid lenses can be used for many prescriptions, but are most commonly used for some types of astigmatism.
