Silicone Hydrogel contact lenses
This new material surpasses other soft contact lenses in the areas of comfort, clarity and eye health. The cornea (the clear “window” on the front of the eye) requires oxygen to be healthy. Standard soft contact lenses use water to transport oxygen to the cornea but Silicon Hydrogel Comfort contains silicone. Silicone is highly gas permeable so it allows the free flow of ample amounts of oxygen directly trough the lens. This direct flow through the lens ensures that the cornea gets a continuous supply of oxygen which promotes a healthier eye.
When the cornea gets sufficient oxygen, the corneal epithelium stays strong, ensuring clear and acute vision. Without enough oxygen the epithelium can break down and microbial keratitis may become an issue. The low water content of Silicon Hydrogel Comfort is also effective at keeping debris, including bacteria, from adhering to the lens surface. Wearing a clean lens greatly reduces the likelihood of a microbial infection.
All people may benefit from lenses made with silicone, especially those who prefer extended or continous wear contact lenses.
