Many changes have recently taken place in the contact lens industry. The biggest advance is the introduction of silicone plastics. Even though silicone materials have been around for some time, they didn't work well for soft contact lenses because the stiffness of the plastic and the surface dryness lead to discomfort.
The biggest advantage of silicone materials is that they allow a great deal of oxygen to flow through them.
Just recently, lens manufacturers have developed ways to make them less stiff and more wettable, which makes them more comfortable.
Say goodbye to dry!!
The new Oasys™ lens from ACUVUE® maker Vistakon/Johnson & Johnson may be the best of the new wave of silicone soft contact lenses.
