Which is better Proclear Toric XR or Biofinity Toric XR?

Due to their breathable material, Biofinity can also be worn overnight as extended wear contact lenses (if approved by your optician). It’s best to book a fitting with your optician who will be able to advise you on which lens type is suitable for you based on your prescription and lifestyle.
