MT optometrist prescribe Pure Vision 2 at Costco. They no longer carry the original. I was miserable with them and my eyes were marred shut every morning. I can see again and my eyes are clear. They don’t fold up in my eyes like PV2 did.

Great service and product! My first order did not arrive but lens.com was quick to resend another order. I work in healthcare and wearing a mask with glasses does not work very well as my glasses were fogging up. When I put my contacts in; I would need cheaters to read. Sometime I had two pairs of glasses on top of my head. Problem resolved! With m...

About Silicone Hydrogel Contacts

One of the main concerns for those who wear contact lenses is comfort. For decades, many contact lens wearers found that they just couldn’t endure the discomfort that was typically associated with contacts. This began to change in the 1960s and 70s when the first soft hydrogel contact lenses were launched. These soft contact lenses improved oxygen permeability, lens wettability, and overall comfort for wearers. Despite these advances, it wasn’t until 1998 that silicone hydrogel contact lenses became available to the public and contact lens comfort became commonplace.

Silicone hydrogel contacts have an extremely high oxygen permeability, with up to five times more oxygen reaching the cornea than with traditional hydrogel lenses. In 2013, silicone hydrogels accounted for 66% of all contact lens fittings in the U.S., compared to only 24% for regular soft contact lenses. The popularity of silicone hydrogel contacts is due to their effectiveness and higher levels of comfort relative to other types of contacts.

Silicone hydrogel contacts enable lens wearers to keep their lenses in for longer periods of time, known as extended wear, with a much lower risk of hypoxia. Hypoxia is when the cornea’s oxygen supply is significantly reduced—hypoxia is responsible for problems including red eyes, corneal swelling, blurred vision, and general eye discomfort. It can also increase the risk for a number of different eye infections. By significantly increasing the amount of oxygen that reaches the cornea, silicone hydrogel contact lenses increase the safety of both daily wear and extended wear of soft contact lenses.

Silicone hydrogel contact lenses are also useful in the design of specialty contacts. For example, the greater lens mass necessary for the design of toric lenses benefit from using silicone hydrogel material. This has enabled contact lens manufacturers to develop a wider variety of lens designs while still ensuring a healthy amount of oxygen reaches the cornea. Many of the most popular brands of contact lenses are silicone hydrogels including Acuvue Oasys, Air Optix Aqua, and Biofinity. The best way to determine if silicone hydrogel contacts are the right choice for you is to discuss all possible contact lens options with your eye care professional.
