Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses
GP contact lenses, also referred to as rigid or hard lenses, are a widely used form of vision correction. They are designed to remain in place on the eye, resulting in clearer vision. The lenses are constructed from a durable, oxygen-resistant material, which allows oxygen to enter the eye and the cornea. This process of “breathing” is essential for comfort, eye health, and safety when wearing contact lenses. Although GP lenses are not as widely used as soft lenses, advances in research and technology have enabled them to become more effective.
The Benefits of GP Lenses
The GP lenses are sharper, especially for those with astigmatism or any refractive surgery.
They are, however, more durable than soft contact lenses and can provide a better value for the money.
Glycerin lenses are transparent, which allows them to breathe, and hence, they are good for the eyes. It reduces permeability, therefore reducing eye infections and providing a good fit.
Protein deposits, which can blur vision, are harder to adhere to rigid GP lenses due to them being made out of harder material.
GP lenses are made to ensure that one’s vision remains constant throughout the day, and thus, they are ideal for sports and active tasks because they are kept in stable positions.
GP lenses are specifically designed for unique vision conditions such as presbyopia and keratoconus, thus providing a perfect fit and unparalleled performance. Eye care specialists can adjust this lens to achieve the best possible result.
Are GP Contact Lenses Right for You?
Every individual’s eyes are unique, and choosing between a GP lens and a soft lens largely depends on your comfort level, the type of vision correction you need, and your lifestyle. Some people may find the rigid nature of a GP lens difficult to adjust to at first, but many people say that after an adjustment period, they feel more comfortable and see more clearly.
