Does the higher the degree of contact lenses, the thicker the lenses?

Wearing contact lenses is for aesthetics, but the right degree is the basis of glasses. Recently, many people have asked: Is the higher the degree of contact lenses, the thicker the lens. Today, let's take a look at this issue together.

In theory, the higher the diopter, the thicker the lens will naturally be. However, since the thickness of the contact lens itself is calculated in units of 0.01MM, the increased thickness is completely negligible, and even the naked eye is difficult to distinguish. In addition, when the degree increases, the parameter of the base arc of the lens will also have an impact, but the change in the base arc is also negligible.


Therefore, contact lenses need to be differentiated by the parameters marked on the packaging. If the degrees of the left and right eyes are inconsistent, you should be more careful, and you should avoid confusion when wearing it and cause various discomforts. In the process of removing and wearing, you must pay attention to distinguish the lenses of the left and right eyes, and store them in the L and R boxes marked by the double box accordingly.

Generally speaking, the regular eyeglasses procedure requires fundus examination and optometry for the wearer first, to make sure whether it is suitable to wear contact lenses, exclude contraindications, and the optometrist should convert and adjust the degree according to the optometry results, so as to ensure Perfect fit for contact lenses.


Under normal circumstances, the thickness of contact lenses is closely related to the oxygen permeability of the lenses and the comfort of wearing, so everyone is very concerned about the thickness changes of the lenses. In fact, as long as it is a regular product, it is very soft and comfortable to wear, and you can buy and use it with confidence.
