Soft contact lenses are made of flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea. Rigid gas permeable contact lenses (RGPs) are more durable and resistant to deposit buildup, and usually offer crisper, clearer vision. RGP’s tend to be less expensive over the life of the lens since they last longer than soft contact lenses. Although they are easier to handle and less likely to tear, RGP’s are not as comfortable initially as soft contacts and it may take a few weeks to get used to wearing them, compared to several days for soft contacts. Extended wear lenses are usually soft contact lenses made of flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea. The length of continuous wear depends on the type of lens and the specialists at our Washington DC optical boutique will evaluate your tolerance for overnight wear. It’s important for the eyes to have a rest without lenses for at least one night following each scheduled removal. Treating and educating our patients for many years, our doctors will explain that some common causes which contribute to a contact lens-related infection include, sleeping in your contact lenses, use of extended-wear lenses, reduced tear exchange under the lens, and environmental issues. Another common cause of infection is poor hygiene, including insufficient maintenance of contact lens cases or reusing contact lens solution. Safe handling, proper storage and cleaning of your lenses are important steps to reduce your risk of a keratitis infection. We are well educated in the fitting, as well as the care, of all types of contact lenses and make sure all our patients know how to get the most out of their choices.
