Also they are very comfortable and most patients get used to it very quickly. It is very important to follow the cleaning and storage protocol of manufacturer.


Rigid Gas Permeable

The RGP are design for the correction of cornea abnormalities that can not be corrected with glasses They are safer than older types of Rigid Contact Lens, due to their oxygen permeable properties. The users need more time to get used to wear an RGP that a soft contact Lens, hence it is recommended a schedule for gradual use.
