Rigid gas permeable lenses are made of a firm and durable plastic that transmits oxygen. They are an excellent option as they are a healthy contact lens for your eye.
These lenses do not contain water like soft lenses, and therefore resist deposits and are less likely to harbor bacteria. Due to the amount of oxygen that can pass through rigid gas permeable lenses, this makes them more comfortable and easier to get used to compared to hard contacts, and also keep the lenses more securely on the eye when worn during intense activities or sports. This gives better vision, durability and deposit resistance than soft contact lenses. Complete Family Eyecare in North York, Ontario carries rigid gas permeable contact lenses from a range of brands.
