    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.
