Contacts are not " simply latex"
They are made out of specially designed materials for every different lens brand...materials that will hold different % of moisture, some that have more oxygen transmission capabilities...
Some of the materials, developed especially for contacts are Etafilcon, Galyfilcon,Senofilcon,Methafilcon,
lotrafilcon,Enfilcon,Comfilcon,Tefilcon, to name a few.
The materials are all too scientifically advanced to call them simply latex.Source(s): Optician
