What are Gas-Permeable Contact Lenses?

Gas-permeable contact lenses, also known as rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses, are crafted from a durable plastic material that enables the efficient flow of oxygen to the eyes. This attribute grants them several advantages over traditional soft contact lenses. GP lenses offer exceptional visual clarity and are highly effective in correcting astigmatism and other refractive errors.

Benefits of Gas-Permeable Contact Lenses

GP contact lenses offer numerous benefits and advantages, including:

  • Health and Hygiene: GP lenses resist bacteria and protein deposits, keeping the lenses cleaner for longer.
  • Comfort: Custom-made for each individual, GP lenses provide better oxygen transmission and comfort.
  • Better Vision: GP lenses' rigid material and smooth surface offer sharp and stable vision without dehydration problems.
  • Cost: GP lenses are more cost-effective as they last longer than standard soft lenses, especially disposable ones.
  • GPs for Astigmatism: These lenses are particularly suitable for individuals with astigmatism, offering clear and stable vision correction.

GP Contact Lenses for Astigmatism in Bethesda

Astigmatism is a common refractive error characterized by an irregular curvature of the cornea or lens, leading to blurry or distorted vision. GP lenses are an excellent choice for astigmatism correction due to their rigid nature and ability to maintain a consistent eye shape.

The Bethesda Vision Care eye care team will evaluate your astigmatism's specific curvature and fitting requirements. Our expertise and advanced technology allow us to customize GP contact lenses to suit your needs, providing optimal astigmatism correction and comfortable vision.

If you have astigmatism and seek an effective and reliable solution, consider gas-permeable contact lenses at our Bethesda practice.
