Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contacts are the most popular form of corrective lenses on the market today. Due to the soft, flexible, breathable plastic they are made from, soft contacts are easy to wear. Soft lenses come in long-term options, as well as monthly and daily disposable contacts. Soft contact lenses work well for those with near or far-sightedness or astigmatism. Consult with our experts to determine which option will be the best for your sight, budget, and routine.
Gas Permeable (GP) Lenses
Gas Permeable or GP lenses fit closer to the eye, making vision sharper. However, being made from a rigid plastic, they are not as instantly comfortable to wear as soft lenses. GP lenses allow your cornea to breath during wear, which is essential for optimal eye health. Due to the rigidity of GP lenses, there is not as much long-term change to the shape of the wearer’s eyes as soft contact lenses experience. GP lenses are also more durable, leave fewer deposits, so they do not need to be replaced as often as soft lenses might.
