Rigid Contact Lens FIt (RGP’s)

Rigid lenses were the first type of lenses to be used widely. They are still often worn especially when patients were fit as children. They can offer a clarity of vision that supersedes soft contacts but is not usually prescribed now because of adaptability issues that new wearers must withstand. Rigid lenses are still often prescribed for corneal problems such as Keratoconus because they help to shape the cornea and offer a smoother surface for vision quality. Hybrid lenses are the latest version of contact lenses for patients who have corneal problems and they combine the clarity of vision of rigid lenses yet the better adaptability of soft lenses
