The center thickness of contact lenses can be divided into ultra-thin, standard and thick models. It will change with the degree, and the lens will indeed be thicker if the degree is high. However, the increase in thickness due to the degree is largely negligible and has little effect on how the wearer feels.
When it comes to the factors affecting the thickness of the center, the most important is the lens material. Compared with hydrogel contact lens, silicon hydrogel contact lens will be thicker and harder due to the silicon composition, so there will be a foreign body feeling when wearing, and sensitive eyes will feel more obvious when wearing.
