Rigid Gas Permeable contact lens solution is suitable for use with rigid or gas permeable contact lenses (also known as hard contact lenses) only.
What are rigid gas permeable contact lenses?
Hard or rigid gas permeable contact lenses are common contact lenses known for their thick but breathable design. They have been around for a long time and were, at one stage, the most popular form of contact lens as they predate soft contact lenses. The RGP contact lenses do not contain water but still have a very high degree of breathability. Modern silicone hydrogel lenses allow more oxygen through to your eye but RGP lenses still offer good breathability.
Because gas permeable lenses are of a different construction than other lenses you need to use a special solution to clean and store your lenses.
