Gas Permeable Contact Lenses 'RGP's
Gas permeable contact lenses are rigid plastic lenses that transmit oxygen. Because they retain their shape on the eye, they mask some corneal irregularities and astigmatism and tend to provide sharper vision than soft contact lenses. Rigid gas permeable lenses do however require a period of adaptation, as they are not instantly comfortable on initial insertion. The optometrists at The Big Optician are very skilled and experienced at fitting all types of contact lenses including RGP's.
The Big Optician offers direct debit contact lens programmes. Participation of the Direct Debit contact lens programme entitles you to a number of additional benefits such as 20% discount off the cost of spectacles, complimentary contact lens after-care appointments every 6 months, and a complimentary eye examination every 2 years. Alternatively contact lenses can also be purchased in 1, 3, 6 or 12 month bundles, with or without solutions.
