Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses contain soft, flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through the cornea. It may be easier to adjust to and are more comfortable than rigid gas permeable lenses. Newer lens materials include silicone-hydrogels to provide more oxygen to your eye while you wear your lenses.
A colored contact is an excellent option for almost anyone who needs vision correction and doesn’t want to wear eyeglasses full time or undergo LASIK surgery.
Even with proper care, contact lenses have to replace frequently. It prevents the build-up of lens deposits and contamination that increases the risk of eye infections. The majority of lenses have a replacement schedule. “Disposable” means used once and discarded. Some soft contact lenses are referred to as “yearly disposable” by contact lens sellers, but actually, they are for planned replacement. When you remove your lenses, you should clean and disinfect them properly before reinserting them.
