Biofinity contact lenses are known for providing an unrivalled degree of comfort for monthly contact lens wearers. Also known as ‘Comfilcon A lenses’, they are one of the most popular brands of contact lenses in the world today, and for good reason.
Why should I choose Biofinity lenses?
Developed by trusted manufacturer CooperVision, Biofinity contact lenses have been crafted from silicone hydrogel, a material which allows eyes to receive plenty of oxygen, keeping them fresher for longer.
In turn, this means that Biofinity contacts promote healthier eyes, due to the increased flow of oxygen keeping eyes fresh and moist and preventing the onset of dry eye and irritation over even the longest of days.
Aquaform Technology has also been utilised, to keep the lenses wettable and soft to wear. This kind of technology makes Biofinity lenses an ideal choice for working professionals, or anyone who's prone to dry eyes from digital screen use and other factors of modern living.
Biofinity contact lenses are renowned for the comfort they provide and for each lens offering a presence that you’ll barely feel, whether it’s on day one or day thirty.
What types of Biofinity contact lenses are there?
CooperVision’s Biofinity range offers quality contacts to cater for all visual requirements. Biofinity is the flagship lens of the selection, able to offer comfortable and reliable visual correction for short-sightedness and long-sightedness. Available as Biofinity Toric to correct astigmatism and as Biofinity Multifocal for those with presbyopia, Biofinity are some of the most popular in the UK.
Extended range contact lenses are also provided with Biofinity XR and Biofinity XR Toric. These specialist lenses are able to cater for contact lens wearers with more extreme prescriptions.
Can I wear Biofinity as extended wear lenses?
Due to the exceptional degree of breathability that Biofinity provide, you can actually wear them as extended wear lenses for up to a week, should your optician prescribe this.
If approved by your eye care professional, Biofinity contacts can be worn for up to six days and seven nights without needing to be removed. This means you can enjoy total convenience alongside exceptional comfort when you wear these extended wear contact lenses.
How can I look after my Biofinity contact lenses?
If worn as monthly disposable contacts, Biofinity lenses require nightly removal. You’ll need to take them out every night, before cleaning and storing them overnight in a suitable contact lens solution.
By cleaning and storing your Biofinity contact lenses every night, you can ensure the build-up of any protein, dirt or debris is eliminated. In addition, your lenses will be rehydrated and conditioned, meaning they’ll feel just as soft and comfortable on the last day of the month as they did on the first.
