What materials are used to make color contact lenses?

We stock a variety of lenses made from many different materials. One popular option is silicone hydrogel. Silicone is a soft material and these gel lenses offer a higher oxygen permeability, meaning they feel more natural and comfortable. They maintain this oxygen permeability and moisture longer than traditional lenses. It’s actually the same material used to bandage the eye as part of many treatments. This does not mean you don’t have to care for them just as you would any other lens. It just goes to show that we truly offer the newest and best contact lenses that technology has to offer!
