Contact Lens Material: HEMA
HEMA (Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate) is a popular material used in the manufacturing of contact lenses. It is known for its excellent water retention properties, making it a comfortable choice for lens wearers. The average water content of contact lenses made from HEMA is 38%.
Compared to other materials, HEMA falls within the mid-range in terms of water content. Some materials, such as Lehfilcon A and Nesofilcon A, have higher water content, while others like Lotrafilcon A and Lotrafilcon B have lower water content.
Here is a list of contact lenses made from HEMA:
- Queen's Solitaire: Coloured spherical contact lenses made by Soleko, Moisture/Water content: 38%, Oxygen permeability: 16
- Crazy Lenses fluoreszierend: Spherical Monthly Lenses made by Bach Optic, Moisture/Water content: 38%, Oxygen permeability: null
Please note that the water content of contact lenses is just one factor to consider when choosing the right lenses for your needs. It is always recommended to consult with an eye care professional to determine the most suitable contact lenses for your individual requirements.
