Rigid Gas-Permeable Contact Lenses (RGP)

Rigid gas permeable lenses have been used for decades to correct refractive error of the eyes. The rigid gas-permeable lenses were developed as an improvement to the original “hard” lenses due to the hypoxia that would occur while wearing lenses made of PMMA material. RGPs are still worn by many people throughout the world and are still considered a very safe and successful lens to correct refractive errors. Due to the convenience and comfort of soft contact lenses, RGPs have become more of a “specialty” contact lens in our practice. Many designs of RGPs exist including multi-focal, single vision, keratoconus, and toric for lenticular astigmatism.
