Brought to you by Optical Polymer Research, PMMA contact lenses are the original hard contact lenses. PMMA stands for polymethyl methacrylate, which is a rigid material that offers tremendous durability and stability for lens wearers of all kinds. Original versions of the lenses were not permeable, but modern forms integrate other polymer materials to allow transmission of oxygen to the eyes.
PMMA contact lenses are made from a material known as alphafilcon A, which protects the eyes and enhances stability while allowing high oxygen transmission. This quality can contribute to better ocular health and a whiter appearance of the sclera.
PMMA contact lenses are ideal for lens wearers who may have trouble wearing soft lenses or eye glasses. With this advanced alternative, you can enjoy a strong, stable construction that withstands long-term and extended wear. The lenses don't contain water, which eliminates the potential for deposit build-up and bacterial growth. Despite a water-free construction, PMMA lenses are extremely wettable for a refreshing feeling throughout wear. A one-year replacement schedule offers ideal convenience for the lens wearer, with daily washing and storing required before purchasing a fresh new pair after 365 days.
I recommend the PMMA!
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. My doctor definitely knows what he is talking about!
These are great contacts. The PMMA lenses give me great sight and great comfort all at once. Its so nice not to have to squint to see and be able to do other things I normally couldn't because of my bad vision. These contact lenses took care of all of that for me! Shopping online I got a great discount price, but even if I paid my high doctors price, it still would have been worth the cost.
