Plasma Treatments Increase Wetting and Comfort of Gas Perm Contact Lenses:
----PlasmaOptics is an FDA approved electrochemical treatment in which the water-loving portion of the contact lens plastic are made highly active at the surface.
----The enhanced wettability and comfort lasts up to a year or more when the lenses are properly handled and cleaned with a NON-ABRASIVE cleaner. Using abrasive (milky-colored) lens cleaners or polishing pads can wear down the surface effect. The lens would then have to be re-treated.
----The Rubin Eye Center is able to apply the Plasma Treatment to any gas perm contact lens. Dr. Rubin highly recommends this treatment.
