Gas Permeable Lenses
Gas permeable contact lenses are another option for potential lens wearers. They are sometimes referred to as hard lenses or RGP (rigid gas permeable lenses).
Gas permeable contact lenses have been on the market for a lot longer than soft lenses, and though not as popular, they still have many benefits for specific types of contact lens wearers.
Unlike soft lenses they are more durable and can be worn for longer periods of time. They can be worn daily and replaced every six to twelve months.
If you decide to opt for contact lenses, our qualified members of staff will take you through the process of how to insert and remove them safely. You will also receive useful tips on how to care for your lenses so that they remain in a good condition – so they last for as long as possible.
We understand that many people do get very nervous about trying contact lenses for the first time because they are worried about having to place them directly onto their eyeball. They can take some time getting used to. But don’t worry, as the technique we will show you, this quickly becomes second nature and will cause no discomfort at all.
