Silicone Hydrogel Contact Lenses
Silicone hydrogel contact lenses allow up to 5 times more oxygen to reach the eye than traditional soft contacts.
Any contact lens reduces the amount of oxygen that reaches the eye, at least to some extent. If the cornea receives too little oxygen, it can result in red eyes, blurred vision, and discomfort. It can even make you more susceptible to eye infections.
If you wear contact lenses for most of the day, it’s important that enough oxygen gets to your eyes, so silicone hydrogel lenses may be a good option.
Lenses for Myopia Control
Paragon corneal refractive therapy (CRT) lenses are myopia control lenses worn at night. They correct the curvature of the cornea while your child sleeps. In the morning, the lenses are removed, and the cornea retains its new shape. Your child can go about their daily activities without glasses.
Other options for myopia control lenses are also available.
