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.
A Happy PMMA Lens Wearer and Lens.com Customer!
I've been a happy PMMA lens wearer for over 30+ years! They worked well for me throughout the years, so I didn't find the need to switch to soft lenses. Last year, I lost my left lens and ordered a replacement lens through Lens.com for the first time. I was very happy with their price, service, and product. The lens fit perfectly! Recently, I needed to order a replacement lens again, but the new lens I received did not fit me comfortably for some reason. I contacted Lens.com and their service was terrific! They were hassle-free, and I received my replacement lens within a few days, and the new lens fit perfectly!! I would, definitely, recommend Lens.com to anyone looking to purchase replacement contact lenses. They are low priced, friendly, efficient and...they stand by their satisfaction guarantee!! Thank you Lens.com! You're the BEST!!
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.
