While soft contact lenses dominate the market, there are many benefits of rigid gas permeable contact lenses! for more information:

  1. Good vision: corrects most astigmatism; excellent optical quality, good surface wettability, available in bifocal designs
  2. Excellent eye health: 2-3 times more oxygen to the cornea than soft contacts, smaller size allows for tear exchange, fewer deposits
  3. Durability: GP lenses last longer and don’t need to be replaced as often as soft, lower long-term cost, use much less contact lens cleaning solutions.
  4. Ease of handling: smaller size lenses are easier to insert.
