Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses

The main differences between RGPs and SCLs are the comfort and quality of vision. RGPs are very uncomfortable initially. However, once you are adapted to it, the discomfort becomes minimal. The other difference is the superior optical clarity of RGPs. In addition, RGPs are a great alternative for patients who have high prescription either in spherical or astigmatism component. These custom made lenses allows wider ranges of prescription.
Because of its design, RGPs are the most breathable lenses available. Your cornea needs to have adequate amount of oxygen going through to provide adequate vision and health. This is why these lenses are perfect for patients who have had previous corneal complications from SCL overwear.

Not only do RGPs correct spherical, astigmatism, and presbyopia. Specialty RGPs also help treat certain corneal eye diseases such as keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration.
