Most people who wear contact lenses, wear soft (flexible) contact lenses. Did you know that very often Rigid Gas-Permeable (RGP) lenses may be a better alternative for you than soft lenses. Here are just a few reasons:
1. Long Term Comfort: Although may initially take longer than soft lenses to fully adapt to (1-3 weeks compared to 1-3 hours), the long-term comfort of properly fitted RGP lenses can be BETTER than that of soft lenses.
2. Excellent Crisp Vision: Rigid lenses do not “wrinkle” on a microscopic level and hence, focus light better than soft lenses, for better vision.
