Rigid gas permeable (RGP) or otherwise known as gas permeable contact lenses and hard lenses are not as popular as they once were, with soft contact lenses now the main solution for spectacle-free vision correction.
However, many individuals will still wear RGP lenses usually if they are a longstanding wearer or have been prescribed by the hospital. RGP lenses can also be a great solution for vision correction compared to soft contact lenses for higher prescriptions and individuals with certain corneal conditions.
At Belper opticians we are able to offer comprehensive checkups for RGP lenses and are well trained to deal with any complications. RGP fitting and checkups are slowly becoming a lost art form, but at Belper Opticians we retain an expertise in all aspects of eye care to ensure all patients get the service they need. We already have many patients who see us regularly for their gas permeable lenses.
