Types of Contact Lenses
Gas-permeable lenses : These lenses are also known as “RGPs.” They are the present rigid or “hard” lenses, which allow oxygen in the air to pass directly through the lens. These are less prone for allergy.
Soft contact lenses : These lenses are soft and flexible, as well as allowing oxygen to reach the cornea. These are the most preferred contact lenses due to the flexibility.
Monthly, weekly & Daily disposable lenses: are the same Soft lenses, but they have a little longer duration of use during a day.
Toric contact lenses : correct moderate astigmatism. They are available in both rigid and soft materials.
