What's the difference between silicone hydrogel contact lenses and hydrogel lenses?
Silicone hydrogel contact lenses are the most innovative and beneficial soft contact lenses accessible today.
They allow up to five times more oxygen to pass through the lens and reach the cornea of the eye in comparison to normal hydrogel contact lenses. This makes silicone hydrogel contact lenses a more attractive option for individuals who suffer from dry eyes, irritation and allergies.
Enriching moisture technology used in silicone hydrogel material ensures both a clear and comfortable wear for a healthy lens wearing experience.
At Feel Good Contacts, we stock genuine branded silicone hydrogel lenses from professional eye care manufacturers, such as Johnson & Johnson, Alcon and Ciba Vision, CooperVision and Bausch & Lomb. Our selection of lenses caters to your visual requirements, whether you need daily disposable, two weekly or even monthly contact lenses.
Are silicone hydrogel contact lenses suitable for my eyes?
Almost everyone can wear silicone hydrogel contact lenses, as they can correct short-sightedness or long-sightedness, and are also available as toric lenses and multifocal lenses for the correction of astigmatism and presbyopia, respectively.
At Feel Good Contacts, we recommend speaking with your optician before trying any new lenses as they can advise you on which lenses will be most suitable for your eyes and even provide you with a trial. Silicone hydrogel materials are advanced in technology as they are highly breathable, but it must also be considered that everyone has different eyes and it is possible they may not be compatible for every contact lens wearer, in which case it’s best to speak to your optician first.
Which silicone hydrogel contact lenses should I buy?
Our best-selling silicone hydrogel monthly contact lenses include comfi Air, Air Optix Aqua, Biofinity, and Avaira Vitality. We also stock premium range of silicone hydrogel daily contact lenses in comfi Pure 1 Day, 1 Day Acuvue TruEye, Clariti 1 Day and Dailies Total 1.
You’ll be able to find Acuvue Oasys and Acuvue 2 amongst our range, designed for two weekly disposable use or extended wear. The silicone hydrogel material allows a sufficient amount of oxygen into your eyes, which allows them to breathe and retain moisture even while you’re sleeping. At Feel Good Contacts, we strongly recommend seeking approval from your optician before sleeping in your lenses to ensure they are suitable for you and avoid the risk of any eye infections.
