    As I know that there are 5 types of contact lenses. Rigid gas-permeable (RGP), made of slightly flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the eyes. Daily-wear soft lenses, made of soft, flexible plastic that allows oxygen to pass through to the eyes. Extended-wear available for overnight wear in soft or RGP lenses.Extended-wear disposable soft lenses worn for an extended period of time, from one to six days and then discarded.Planned replacement soft daily wear lenses that are replaced on a planned schedule, most often either every two weeks, monthly or quarterly.
