RGP Contact Lenses
RGP stands for ‘rigid permeable gas’ lenses. There are many myths relating to this type of contact lens on the internet. Many people have been able to improve their sight and quality of life by investing in RGP lenses, so it’s worth your while to talk to an expert and do your research before ruling them out as an option. A common misconception is that RGP lenses are the same as hard contact lenses. While RGP lenses are harder than soft lenses, they are very different from the hard lenses which were made by contact lens manufacturers in the past.
RGP lenses are renowned for providing outstanding visual acuity and their ease of handling make them a viable option for most patients. The cost of maintenance, relating to the contact lens solution also makes it an affordable answer. Studies which have looked at the comfort of patients over a longer term have also shown that RGP lenses provide a high level of comfort.
Ortho K Scleral Lenses
Orthokeratology is often abbreviated to Ortho-K and involves a process that uses specially designed contact lenses to temporarily contour the cornea with the goal of reducing nearsightedness. Research has shown that these lenses can slow the progression of nearsightedness, making them ideal for children and adults with progressive nearsightedness. An eye care professional will need to conduct a thorough examination before determining whether you are a good candidate for Ortho-K scleral lenses.
