While soft lenses are more popular because of the comfort and convenience they offer, there are several benefits to rigid varieties of lenses.

As well as being made from a more rigid polymer, they’re smaller than the soft lenses, and generally allow an easier passage for oxygen to reach the cornea.

Initially, rigid gas permeable lenses take longer to adapt as compared to soft contact lenses. But because the material is more rigid than soft contact lens material, they can correct more complex prescriptions. A great variety of spectacle prescriptions can be made in Rigid Gas Permeable lenses. This includes Astigmatism, Bifocal, Multifocal and Keratoconic corrections.
