Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses

Over the last decade, there has been a rebirth of the rigid lens market with contact laboratories pouring out all kinds of gas perm designs. Their popularity is actually on the upsurge but still a long way from the popularity of soft lenses.

BiFocal Contacts

Astigmatism & Toric Lenses

Astigmatism means the front of the eye, the cornea and/or the lens within the eye is slightly bent. “Football shaped” is a commonly used analogy but is an exaggeration of the amount of bend.
