    Generally speaking, gas permeable lenses are more expensive than other regular lenses. gas permeable lenses’ prices vary from $50 to $250 per lens. In addition, the price of contact lenses may be affected by some factors such as the prescription required by the optometrists and the type of lens. And you should choose them depending on your own needs. Well, the most famous advantage of gas permeable lenses is that they are more durable than soft contacts. For example, a pair of lenses can last for several months or even years while soft contact lenses have to be replaced after a month. Second, they are easy to care for. But on the other hand, if you wear them for the first time, they can feel uncomfortable in the eyes. So you have to adjust to them.

    Well, you should understand that gas permeable contacts are different from other kinds of contacts because they are easy to adjust to, and you are enabled to wear them for longer time each day, about 15 hours. Also, they will have less impact on your retinal thus your eyes could be better protected. I think they are quite amazing. If you are going to buy, you just have to get about 200 dollars.
