Soft Contact Lens

Soft contact lens are made of polymer that are flexible and they are consisted of water so they are bendable without breaking them.  Unlike its RGP counterpart, soft lenses cause wears dryness in their eyes. This is the most challenging issue for contact lens manufacturers.

Contact lens manufacturers have come a long way to develop materials that minimally dry patient’s eyes when wearing them.  Currently silicone-hydrogel (available in many contact lens brands) material is highly recommended for dry eye patient.

Daily disposable (one-day disposable) is the top choice for people who experience dryness with contact lenses.  The lenses are thinner and they require no care since they are disposed at the end of the day.
