– Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses –
Rigid Gas Permeable lenses (commonly referred to as RGP lenses) are still prescribed often in our practice. Sometimes thought of as lenses of a previous era, RGP lenses are still widely prescribed in specialty contact lens practices like ours for many reasons: large or unusual prescriptions that disposable lenses do not cover, for visual rehabilitation for corneal conditions like keratoconus or corneal grafts, and for the corneal moulding required in orthokeratology treatment.
RGP lenses come in numerous designs, materials and sizes, all of which are highly customisable for the shape of the cornea and if any dryness is experienced whilst wearing contact lenses. The journey taken to fit the perfect pair of RGP lenses can be short for some and longer for others, but at the end, rest assured knowing that your highly-customised lenses will let you experience the very best of vision and comfort that our latest technology can offer.
