What are rigid or gas permeable contact lenses?
Rigid or gas permeable contact lenses are contact lenses known for thick, yet breathable, design. Invented before soft contact lenses, rigid gas permeable contact lenses were once the dominant type of contact lenses on the market, and are still around today, available as weekly or monthly contact lenses.
What’s the difference between rigid gas permeable contact lenses and soft contact lenses?
One of the other differences is that rigid gas permeable contacts do not contain water in their design, however make up for this with impressive breathability.
Most RGP contact lenses have been made from silicone, allowing them to transmit a large amount of oxygen through the lens to your eyes. This amount is larger than most soft contact lenses, however not as much as silicone hydrogel contact lenses.
Due to their different designs, rigid gas permeable contact lenses require a different type of cleaning and storing, and a different contact lens solution as a result.
