While these contacts are no longer the most popular choice, they are still the go-to for many new and veteran contact wearers.
Some people may be required to wear this type of contact, while others prefer it.
So, here are some of the best RGP lenses on the market today:
Boston Equalens is a great choice for RGP contact wearers both through the extended health of the eye, as well as the aesthetics. These are durable contacts, with a Dk rating of 47. This means that they supply plenty of oxygen to the eyes for healthy development.
Additionally, since your eyes are getting so much oxygen flow with these contacts, it will help them appear brighter and with an enhanced natural color.
The Optimum Classic contact lens is known for being more comfortable than other RGP contact class. These lenses are made from a polymer named Roflufocon B. This polymer is on the softer end of the hard contact category, making it easier to insert into the eye, and in theory, more comfortable.
This easy insertion makes Optimum Classic particularly valuable for contact lens beginners who are not yet comfortable with this proces and for anyone who really detests contact lens insertion.
O-Perm 60 contacts are made with a well-known and highly regarded fluorinated polymer. This polymer specializes in resisting protein deposits, increasing comfort and allowing for longer uses of the contacts before cleaning or changing them out. In fact, this brand of contacts is approved to be worn daily for up to a year, which means as a patient, you only need to buy one set of contacts every year.
For all the reasons above, this contact is fantastic for people who don’t like cleaning their contacts or are constantly forgetting to do so, and then paying the consequences of protein build up.
Plus, these lenses are specialized to correct astigmatism.
