Just because RGP (rigid gas permeable, oftentimes referred to just as GPs) contact lenses have been around a long time and have been seemingly displaced in popularity by soft contacts, they are still an important player in correcting eye disorders.

Among the current selection of soft contacts, the Acuvue Oasys family of lenses is taking their place in the 'neighborhood' and is rapidly growing in popularity. They have stepped to the forefront, becoming a leading brand prescribed by eye doctors.

In the past, insufficient oxygen flow to the eyes--related to materials in the manufacture of many contact lenses--caused redness, irritation, and dryness before the day was done. Any enjoyment of lengthy activities was marred by having to switch out of contacts and/or wear glasses.

Are you a contact lens wearer with a busy schedule? Then you surely must have experienced the occasional need to take a time out from your hectic day for a refreshing catnap. The only thing is, you probably didn't think of removing your contacts-and you awoke still wearing them. Forgetting your contacts in your eyes while sleeping may be acceptable from time to time, however potential eye-health problems could occur if occasional forgetfulness becomes neglect. Wouldn't it be great if there were a contact lens with a wearing regimen that could accommodate your style of living?

You are not alone. Onset presbyopia (difficulty focusing up close) is occurring to more people as the segment of the population 35 years of age and older grows. Within the next decade, that segment will increase by an additional 16 million. Changes in lifestyles, both at work and home, have made more demands on our near vision. Computer screens, I-phones, and PDAs, etc., keep our eyes busy many hours a day and is contributing to the population experiencing presbyopia earlier than previous generations.
