There are three major types of contact lenses – the Soft Contact Lenses, the rigid glass permeable, as well as the hard contact lenses. Of all the three, most physicians would highly recommend the soft contacts and the rigid glass permeable, as compared with the hard contact lenses.

The Soft Contact Lenses are made of a material known as the hydrophilic plastic. This type of material is responsible for absorbing water on our eyes, making it soft and pliable, enough to fit well perfectly in the eyes. Soft contacts are the most popular vision correction contact lenses for it would perfectly curve right into your eyeballs without any complications.
Another reason why soft contacts are the most popular of all is because most eyes can adjust well to these types of contact lenses. And because they mold well to your eyeballs, there will be less chances that the dust particles and other harmful objects would get into your eyes that could lead to irritation. Patients who use them find it easier to handle, and they can just insert and remove it with ease for they stick to the fingers due to its soft texture.
How to Take Care of Your Soft Contact Lenses
Self contact lenses would require a lot of care and maintenance. It is also a good idea to use disposable Soft Contact Lenses for this would not require cleaning and maintenance – you can just dispose it after using. The thing is, disposables are more expensive, so expect to shell out more money if you prefer this. For non-disposable contact lenses however, cleaning it would involve dissolving it on a sterilizing solution, and right after cleaning, they must be stored properly on a storing solution.
