Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses
RGP lenses, also known as hard contact lenses, are made from a durable material that allows oxygen to pass through to the eyes. These lenses offer several benefits, including:
Sharper vision: RGP lenses maintain their shape on the eye, providing clearer vision, especially for those with astigmatism or higher prescriptions.
Longer-lasting: RGP lenses are more durable than soft lenses, meaning they can last longer with proper care.
Reduced risk of infection: RGP lenses are less likely to harbor bacteria, resulting in a lower risk of eye infections.
Scleral lenses are large-diameter, gas-permeable lenses that rest on the white part of the eye (the sclera) and vault over the cornea. They are ideal for patients with the following conditions:
Keratoconus: Scleral lenses provide a stable, comfortable fit and improved vision for those with irregular corneal shapes caused by keratoconus.
Dry eye syndrome: The space between the lens and the cornea acts as a reservoir for tears, providing relief for those with dry eyes.
Post-surgical complications: Patients who have undergone corneal transplants, LASIK, or other eye surgeries can benefit from the comfort and stability offered by scleral lenses.
