The purpose of this study was to investigate silicone acrylate and fluorosilicone acrylate rigid gas permeable lens materials. Lens base curve stability between wet and dry storage methods was evaluated. Flat and steep base curves were used to consider their effect on base curve constancy. Base curve stability between silicone acrylate lenses and fluorosilicone acrylate lenses showed statistical significance, but failed to show clinical significance. Within the silicone acrylate group, base curve changes between flat and steep lenses demonstrated statistical and clinical significance.
