Contact Lens Materials

There are three types of contact lens materials:

Hard lenses are made from PMMA also known as Plexiglas or Lucite. These lenses are virtually obsolete and rarely used.

Soft lenses are made from gel-like, water-containing plastics, and are most common. They're a bit larger in size than your iris.

RGP lenses also known as GP or oxygen permeable are made from rigid, waterless plastics and are especially good for presbyopia and high astigmatism. These lenses are usually smaller than your iris.
