Unlike regular cosmetic lenses made from 2-HEMA, silicone hydrogel material offers enhanced oxygen permeability, moisture retention, durability and resistance to protein and bacterial adhesion. Below are the benefits of silicone hydrogel:
H2O Natural Wettability: silicone hydrogel retains twice as much moisture as hyaluronic acid, protecting your eyes from dryness and irritation.
O2 Breathability: silicone hydrogel lenses are thinner and are more densely packed with microscopic pores, allowing your eyes to breathe
Clinically Tested Resistance to Protein and Bacterial Adhesion: as published in J Chem Edu and Biomaterials, MPC/PC coated silicone surfaces are smoother with less ridges, conferring resistance to accumulation of proteins and microbes.
UV Protection: Eyevelyn contact lenses have a special coating to block UV rays from contacting your delicate eyes
