What's NEW in Contact Lenses!

Silicone Hydrogel Lenses Gaining Acceptance
The latest generation of contact lenses, made of silicone hydrogel, now accounts for nearly half of all new fits of contact lenses. This new lens material provides a hyper oxygen flow to the cornea, enhancing comfort and enabling contact lenses to be worn on a daily basis, or, in certain cases, overnight for up to 30-days continuous wear. Silicone hydrogel lenses also include components that keep them moist on the eye. All major contact lens manufacturers now offer silicone hydrogel contact lenses — and some have introduced a second generation of silicone hydrogel lenses that improves comfort in dry environments like air-conditioned offices and airliner cabins. Ask your eye care professional about silicone hydrogel contact lenses.
