Semi Soft Lenses or RGP
Rigid gas permeable contact lenses are semi soft lenses that are daily or extended wear depending on the material. They are not hard lenses as they flex. The hard lenses do not flex and are of a material that does not allow oxygen permeability. Semi Soft lenses/RGP allow the oxygen to flow thru the material as soft lenses do. They are more durable and can correct just about every prescription.Crisper vision is attainable with these lenses. They require a period of adaptation that leads to comfortable wear equal to soft contacts.
Keratoconus is the gradual thinning and outward bulging of the cornea into a cone shape. Only contact lenses can really correct this condition. While keratoconus often develops between the teen years and the early 20s, it can develop at any age. Early stages of keratoconus can be treated with soft contact lenses. Advanced cases of keratoconus, may be corrected with rigid gas permeable contact lenses and specialty irregular cornea contact lenses. If eyeglasses or regular soft contact lenses cannot control keratoconus, rigid gas permeable contact lenses are usually the preferred treatment.
Ortho-K, utilizes specially designed rigid gas permeable contact lenses to change the curvature of the cornea, eliminating the need for glasses and contact lenses during the day. The contact lens is worn, like a retainer, while you sleep. The lens needs to be worn every night. If lens wear is discontinued the corneas will return to their original curvature.
Scleral lenses are lenses of very large diameter that provide better and correct almost all irregular corneas. Call us for a free consult.
