About Gas Permeable Contacts

Although nearly 38 million Americans wear contact lenses, many are unfamiliar with gas permeable contact lenses. As a growing, high-tech alternative to soft contact lenses, gas permeable contact lenses accounted for about 9% of all new contact lens fits and refits in the United States.

Made from a firm, durable plastic that transmits oxygen, gas permeable contact lenses offer excellent eye health. Since they don't contain water like soft contact lenses do, they're better able to resist deposits and are less likely to harbor the growth of bacteria. Although gas permeable contact lenses are rigid, they shouldn't be confused with old-fashioned hard contact lenses, which are now obsolete.

In addition to better resisting deposits and bacteria growth, gas permeable contact lenses provide better vision and durability. Since they last longer than soft contact lenses and are less likely to rip and tear, they can be less expensive in the long term.

The benefits of gas permeable contact lenses don't end there: they're made from a firm plastic material, retain their shape when you blink, and are known to provide sharper vision than soft contact lenses. Although you can break them by stepping on them or handling them with great force, they do not tear easily. As long as you don't require a prescription change, gas permeable contact lenses can last for years with proper care and handling.

Often used as an alternative choice for those who complain of contact lens discomfort, gas permeable contact lenses are custom made. Your eye care professional will measure the exact shape of your cornea and, from there, lenses of the correct curvature, size, and corrective power will be manufactured specifically for you.

Ideal for those with presbyopia, astigmatism, keratoconus, and those who may require contact lenses after refractive surgery, talk to an eye care professional today to determine if gas permeable contact lenses are right for you.

The Boston 7 is one of the best gas perms on the market. I have been wearing contact lenses for over 30 years, when I started I was wearing PMMA which always scratched my cornea. I went through several gas perms after that but never felt like they really fit my eye, it always felt like I had something in my eye. Finally several years ago my docto...

I have bad astigmatism and have been wearing hard lenses for years. I have perfect vision with these. I have had problems with soft toric lenses, and vision is always compromised.

The Boston II reigns supreme to any other contact lens. This is lens is made to be very high quality. I get perfect vision and great comfort with the Boston II.

Boston IV

The Boston IV is the best RGP there is. This gas permeable lens is so comfortable I couldn't believe it! Its just on a whole other level when compared to other gas permeable contact lenses. I didn't think RGPs were suppose to be this comfortable so it was a very pleasant surprise. Of course I get 20/20 vision with it and I am saving a lot of mo...

I just switched to the Boston RXD from eyeglasses because glasses were becoming too much of a hassle for me and I am very pleased with the switch.

The contact lenses are very comfortable and I get the same great sight so it was a...

Boston XO

(2 reviews)
My entire family wears the Boston XO contact lenses so I figure there must be something to them. It was the first lens I bought when I started wearing contact lenses and I found out immediately what my family was talking about. The contacts made my eyes a little sensitive for a few days but after that wore off they were very comfortable. The vis...

Boston Equalens

I've been wearing hard lenses full time for more than 50 years, after obtaining my first lenses in Okinawa, when I was 19. I've been wearing Boston Equalens lenses for at least 20 years, and find them to be the best I have ever had, regarding long term comfort and superior vision. With my normal vision of -8.00, I have great difficulty wearing equi...

I switched to the Boston Equalens II a couple of years ago from disposable lenses and the quality isn't even comparable. I was really missing out by wearing disposable lenses for so long. I get such better comfort with the Boston Equalens II than with any other disposable contact lens. The sight is superior as well because the lens is custom mad...

I have always worn glasses because I didn't want to have to mess with contact lenses every day. My wife finally got me to try them and the first one I tried was the Fluorex 300. I figured that a gas permeable contact lens would be the best for the transition and I loved it from day 1. The sight that it gave me was just as good as my glasses and...

The Fluorex 500 gives me great vision and it doesn't slack on comfort! My vision is 20/20 with these contact lenses. I never have any blurriness.

I have worn the Fluorex 700 contact lens for the last 7 years and it always does me well. Every contact lens that I get gives me perfect vision and is very comfortable. These contact lenses feel like my own eyes and make wearing contact very easy. I would definitely recommend these contact lenses!

Fluorocon

Gas Permeable

4.5
(2 reviews)
The Fluorcon contact lens is of very high quality. It also stay comfortable for the entire time that I wear it for. Other RGP lenses that I had in the past would always start to irritate my eyes towards the end of the day but that not the case with these contacts. The Fluorocon is definitely the best gas permeable contact lens on the market

Fluoroperm 151

Gas Permeable

4.7
(3 reviews)
I wore regular hard lenses for years, then discovered RGP's. I was so used to hard lenses that these felt like wearing the wateriest soft lenses. I can't wear soft lenses because they just don't fit right, so I was relieved when the Fluoroperm 151 lenses fit perfectly, correcting my vision to 20/15. I can wear them all day and they're just as sm...

I love wearing RGP contact lenses because I can always count on them to give me great sight. The Fluoroperm 30 makes wearing contact lenses easy because it is so comfortable and require almost no maintenance. I can just put the contact lens in my eye and forget about it for the rest of the day. I only need one pair for an entire year so I am not...

Fluoroperm 60

Gas Permeable

(2 reviews)
I have a very tough prescription to fill and the Fluoroperm 60 always gives me the crisp and clear vision that I need. I need the -17.87 power and there are not many contact lenses that can give me that power and even fewer than can give me a comfortable lens with that power. The Fluoroperm 60 does both of those so I can get comfort and sight all...

(2 reviews)
I had bad vision ever since I was little. I was that kid in pre school who wore thick glasses. For a long time I did not think it was possible for me to get contact lenses because of my very complicated prescription and the difference between powers in my eyes. Finally my doctor prescribed these phenomenal lenses and freed me from my coke bottle gl...

OP-2

Gas Permeable

4.5
(2 reviews)
When it comes to gas permeable contact lenses the OP-2 cannot be beat. I have always been a fan of the RGP contact lens ever since I started wearing contact lenses oh so long ago and the OP-2 is the best one I have ever worn. It always make my vision perfect and It is very comfortable and fits my eyes great. I know that I can rely on the OP-2.

OP-3

Gas Permeable

4.5
(2 reviews)
This contact lens rocks! This thing is super durable, nothing can break it. I was amazed at how long this contact lens consistently lasted me. I don't know why everyone doesn't wear the OP-3. It lasts forever so I am not always buying contacts and I save money. It also gives me awesome vision and its super comfortable.

OP-6

Gas Permeable

4.5
(2 reviews)
If you want a contact lens that you know is going to give you perfect vision with comfort all of the time then I would recommend trying out the OP-6 gas permeable contact lens. This has been my contact lens for the last 5 years and it has never let me down, even when my prescription changes. Its always comfortable and it feels great all day long!

(2 reviews)
I have recently taken up the sport of competitive badminton and I can't wear glasses when I play unless I want to wear prescription goggles. I shopped around for contact lenses that could correct my vision but also be comfortable at the same time. I tried some trial pairs of disposable contact lenses and there was always some blurriness in my vis...

O-Perm 60

Gas Permeable

4.5
(2 reviews)
The O-Perm 60 gas permeable contact lenses is the most breathable RGP that I have ever wore. Other gas permeable contact lenses that I wore in the past never felt like they let anything through. They would always dry out my eyes and irritate them then. The O-Perm 60 contact lets my eye breathe so it stay hydrated and comfortable.

Optacryl 60

Gas Permeable

(2 reviews)
I tried out the Optacryl 60 about 4 years ago and I have been wearing it ever since. I switched because I was sick of always buying disposable contact lenses and spending so much money. Now I just buy one pair a year and that's it. Wearing this contact lens is a pretty easy way to save money. The lens is super comfortable and it gives me great...

Paragon HDS

Gas Permeable

4.5
(2 reviews)
The Paragon HDS is a great contact lens. You can't beat perfect vision and comfort. The lenses are also very easy to put in and take out. I used to wear disposable lenses and it seems like I would at least waste one per box by dropping it or folding it or something else stupid. The Paragon HDS is superior in every way.

Gas Permeable

(2 reviews)
I have worn gas permeable contact lenses for about 10 years now and the most comfortable one that I have ever worn is the Paragon HDS 100. I made the switch to RGPS to save some money but this contact lens is a lot better than disposable contact lenses. This contact lens is able to let my eyes breathe so much more than any other contact lens. My...

Paragon Thin

Gas Permeable

4.5
(2 reviews)
There is no other gas permeable contact lens like the Paragon Thin RGP. I just switched back to this lens after wearing a daily disposable lens for a while. It is convenient to just throw away your contact lenses at the end of the day but it doesn't make up for the lack of comfort and sight. Ill take a little maintenance if it give me perfect si...

Paraperm 02

Gas Permeable

4.5
(2 reviews)
The Paraperm 02 contact lens is much more durable than my disposable contact lenses and it saves me money. This contact lens lasts at least a year so I am not always buying new boxes of contact lenses like I was with disposable contact lens. It is just as comfortable and actually gives me better sight so I am very glad that I switched.

Paraperm EW

Gas Permeable

(2 reviews)
The Paraperm EW has been my contact lens for the last 4 years and I tell everyone I know that wears contact lenses that they need to start wearing it!

When I told my doctor that I wanted to try a gas permeable contact lens he immediately recommended the PMMA. He said he had been wearing it for 6 years and he loved it. I took his recommendation and got a pair of my own. He was definitely right. Right away I knew what he was talking about. I have never worn such a comfortable contact lens. M...

You can't beat the quality of the Polucon II gas permeable contact lens! These contact lenses are so long lasting. I was amazed when I had my first Polycon II contact lens.

I always see advertising for acuvue lenses but I figure that if the product is good then there is no need to advertise. That's how I feel about the SGP II. I never see advertising for this lens but I am pretty sure it is the best contact lens on the market. No other lens can match up to the SGP II. I heard about this contact lens from a friend....

If you want a reliable contact lens that is comfortable as well then I would recommend the SGP III.

The best one that I have found would be the SGP III. Always perfect visi...

I have worn the Trans-aire for the last 8 years and have always been satisfied with it. I figured it was about time to write a review about it. The thing I like most about the Trans-aire if every pair of contact I receive from them is exactly the same as the last pair. I know that I am going to get my 20/20 vision and the lenses will be comforta...

I have never worn a gas permeable contact lens as comfortable as the Optimum Classic. It feels great when I put it into my eye and it stays that way throughout the entire day.

I was tired of always having to buy contact lenses and spend so much money on them so I wanted to make a switch to a rigid gas permeable contact lens.

I play a lot of racquetball so I need a contact lens that won't pop out of my eye. I used to wear weekly disposable lenses and they would always fall out of my eye.
