Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses – Custom Designed Vision Correction
Unlike traditional soft contact lenses, gas permeable contact lenses are custom-fit and manufactured, based on the exact measurements of your eyes. Nearly anyone who is dissatisfied with their vision with off-the-shelf soft contacts may be a good candidate for GP custom contact lenses.
Custom GP lenses can be designed to fit unusual corneal surfaces. They are an excellent option for individuals with keratoconus or unusual corneal curvature caused by eye injury, natural causes, an unsuccessful LASIK procedure or other corneal refractive surgery.
For patients who have become presbyopic, custom GP lenses are the preferred choice for multifocal contacts allowing for near, intermediate and distance vision. Recently, orthokeratology designed custom GP lenses are emerging as an effective, non-surgical treatment of myopia and astigmatism.
Custom GP contact lenses made from Lagado materials offer a broad range of features and benefits allowing your eye care professional to design a lens that meets your precise needs.
Lagado Gas Permeable Contact Lenses
If you have never considered wearing contact lenses or have been previously told you are not a suitable contact lens wearing candidate, now is a great time to revisit this option. The Lagado family of innovative gas permeable contact lens materials are formulated to offer improved lens comfort, wetting, deposit resistance and overall performance.
Lagado materials are crafted into custom designed and custom fitted lenses to provide you with crisp, clear vision that are more durable and longer lasting than soft contact lenses. In addition, Lagado GP lens materials offer better protection of your ocular health versus soft contact lenses by allowing more oxygen to reach the surface of your eye. Depending on your vision requirements, your eye care professional has a choice of Lagado materials in a wide range of oxygen permeability as well as materials that contain UV-absorbing properties.
There has never been a better time to wear gas permeable contact lenses. New lens designs made from Lagado materials are more comfortable and affordable than ever before.
