Askew Eyewear in Stoke Newington stock a wide range of rigid gas permeable contact lenses and soft contact lenses

Rigid gas permeable lenses

These lenses are better for correcting certain eye conditions because of the materials from which they are made. As they do not contain water, they do not dry out like soft contact lenses. 

But you do need to accommodate your eye to use these lenses, and you have to take them out each day to clean them.

Contact lenses in Hackney
Gas permeable rigid lenses do not contain water and are resistant to deposits.

Soft lenses

Soft contact lenses are easier to wear and do not need much getting used to. They are great for people who have an active lifestyle.

They are also cheaper that rigid gas permeable lenses. However they do not correct all vision problems and you need to make regular appointments with Askew Eywear for follow-up care.

Soft lenses can be more comfortable and are more difficult to dislodge
