Soft Hydrogel

Durable hydrogel contact lenses. Wide range of lens types and parameters

These lenses are termed ‘soft’ since they are made from water-swollen, cross-linked, hydrophilic polymers.

Soft Lenses are, as the name suggests, a soft plastic gel material called a hydrogel. They become soft due to the hydrophilic or “water-loving” property of the plastics used. The first materials were just 38% water content, but were still revolutionary in their day because they were much more comfortable than other lenses available at the time.
