Highest oxygen-permeability lens

My eye doctor switched my monthly contact lens from Acuvue Vita to AirOptix Night and Day. His reasoning was that AirOptix Night and Day has one of the highest oxygen permeable lenses on the market. He also said that because of this, the red veins in my eyes should slowly start to clear up, which means better eye health overall because of the increased oxygen I'll be getting with night & days. (I still take my contacts out every night)

But is what my eye doctor said true? I don't find them any more comfortable than the Vita, and I don't know much about oxygen permeability. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
