In brief: Solution not lens

Generally, we see that patients who have contact lens allergies are sensitive not to the lens but to the disinfection solutions.
We usually attempt to transition patients to a hydrogen peroxide system and if necessary to daily disposables. Addressing environmental allergens is very important as well.

In brief: Depends

If the allergy is to something in the environment, than most soft lenses are fine.
If the allergy is to the contact lense, then you might ask your ophthalmologist to recommend a gas permeable lens or perhaps a daily wear soft lens.
