“Gas Permeable” (GP) contact lenses are a great alternative to soft contact lenses.
GP contact lenses are small, slightly flexible lenses made of a firm, durable plastic that transmits oxygen and allows your eyes to “breathe”. Developed through extensive research and customization, they are able to fit your eyes; providing sharp, clear and stable vision.
Do not confuse GP contact lenses with hard lenses. GP contact lenses may be firm, but they are not those uncomfortable hard lenses of the past, which do not allow much oxygen to reach the eyes. In fact, hard lenses are obsolete today.
