Recommended Contact Lenses For Dry Eyes

Contact lenses for dry eyes are composed of material that is different from regular prescription and non prescription contact lenses. Rigid gas permeable lenses are manufactured specifically for dry eyes. They are made from polymeric material that doesn’t contain water at all. The thin film of RGP lenses opposes the tear film and water which helps it in keeping the contact lens stable in your eyes. The only problem with RGP lenses is that, they are rigid and one doesn’t feel comfortable wearing them. It is really difficult to switch completely from soft contact lenses to rigid contacts but this will help you in keeping away from dry eyes and its consequences.
