What Are Silicone Hydrogel Lenses?
Silicone hydrogel is a soft and breathable material, commonly used in modern contact lenses. Unlike the materials used in traditional lenses, silicone hydrogel lenses fit comfortably and securely on the eye without causing dryness. Benefits Of Wearing Silicone Hydrogel Lenses Silicone hydrogel lenses are particularly ideal for those with dry eyes. This is because the material allows up to five times more oxygen to reach your eyes, keeping them fresh and hydrated all day long. If your eyes don’t get enough oxygen, they will become irritated and make your lenses feel ‘sticky’. This can later cause eye infections if not treated.
To summarise, here are the benefits of silicone hydrogel lenses:
- They keep your eyes moist and hydrated
- Softer and more natural-feeling
- Safer to wear
- Promotes overall eye health
- Perfect for air-conditioned offices
