Why PEGLens is healthy

Excellent oxygen transmission through a contact lens is essential to corneal health. The PEGLens polymer itself boasts uniquely high hydrogel oxygen permeability (Dk = 45 barrers).

The thin 70-micron design boosts enhances oxygen performance even higher, delivering a Dk/t of 64, far in excess of less innovative hydrogel materials. No hydrophobic silicone is needed. PEG molecules at the surface of PEGLens minimize lens surface dehydration and limit protein and lipid deposition.
