Breathable Contact Lens-Silicone Hydrogel Contacts

Breathable Contact Lens-Silicone Hydrogel Contacts

Silicone hydrogel contact lens, which is an organic polymer material, is hydrophilic and has a two-phase material structure, that is, it has two channels of fluorosilicone and hydrogel. It is often used to make high-end contact lenses.

1. Contact lens production materials

Traditional soft contact lenses are made of hydrogel polymers (soft water-retaining plastics). The plastic itself is not oxygen-permeable, so the moisture content of the glasses needs to transmit oxygen to the eyes through the contact lens. Although the moisture in the contact lens can play a role in permeating oxygen for the eyes, the moisture in the lens itself will be lost due to evaporation. At this time, the lens will absorb tears to maintain the original water content. A contact lens with a higher water content absorbs more water in tears, causing both the lense and eyes to become dehydrated and dry.

Ordinary gel lenses have low water content, which can cause dehydration and deformation after long-wearing. However, the oxygen that water can contain is limited, and the more water content of a contact lens, the more likely it is to become dehydrated and lose its softness after being worn for a long time.

Compared with traditional contact lenses, silicone hydrogel contact lenses have a breakthrough improvement. The high oxygen permeability and low water moisture retention of ordinary hydrogel materials cannot coexist. Silicone hydrogel contact lenses perfectly solve this limitation. Because silicon is a substance that can permeate oxygen well. Therefore, silicone hydrogel lenses transmit oxygen to the eye through water and silicon molecular polymers and have higher oxygen permeability. Silicone hydrogel is also known as the best contact lens manufacturing material.

2. Advantages of silicone hydrogel contacts

The latest research shows that silicone hydrogel contact lenses can give eyes up to five times more oxygen than other traditional soft contact lenses. It can also resist lipid precipitation, effectively improving the lubricity and cleanliness of the lens surface. 

A common problem for contact lens wearers is dry eyes. Contact lenses become dry and the oxygen supply to the eyes is cut off, which can cause discomforts such as eye fatigue and dryness. However, the oxygen permeability of silicone hydrogel contact lenses can reach more than five times that of ordinary hydrogels, which can ensure that the eyes are no longer dry and relieve discomfort. 

The surface of the silicon hydrogel lens is treated with a plasma film layer, which can resist lipid precipitation and effectively improve the lubrication and cleanliness of the lens surface, which is almost 4-5 times less than the precipitation on the lens without film treatment.

The lens adopts an aspherical design, which fits the eyeball better, obtains clearer vision, and has healthier visual effects while ensuring comfortable wearing and healthy cornea.

And silicone hydrogel contact lenses can also reduce the risk of eye infections, especially due to their low moisture content to prevent bacterial growth. After three years of clinical follow-up by the US FDA for three consecutive years, the slit lamp examination found that it can significantly improve the ocular hypoxia, effectively ensure the long-term health of the cornea, and bring sufficient oxygen to the eyes, making the eyes white and healthy wearing a new experience. 

Convenience and comfort are particularly important for users who wear contact lenses for a long time. Due to the low water content of the silicone hydrogel contact lens, it is not easy to get dehydrated and dry when wearing the contact lens. It can keep the eyes moist for a long time, and the eyes are always permeable with oxygen without causing eye discomfort. For people who need to stay up late or work long hours or travel long distances, silicone hydrogel contact lenses can keep your eyes moisturized and comfortable.

3. Suitable people for silicone hydrogel contacts

Suitable for the crowd: 1. All contact lens wearers who care about eye health; 2. Astigmatism not higher than 000 degrees; new customers who have never worn contact lenses before; 3. Customers who pursue the best quality and wear it without worry; 4. People who have stopped wearing glasses before because of discomfort; or who often wear glasses overnight; 5. Busy work and life, hope to wear them continuously for a long time to avoid cumbersome nursing procedures;  6. Those who work on computers for a long time, are in dry environments such as air-conditioning and are prone to dry eyes.
