SofLens 38 contact lenses, formerly known as Optima FW, are made by Bausch & Lomb with a high-performance, ultra-thin design. The lens material provides sharp vision, comfort and deposit-resistance you can count on. These spherical soft contact lenses fit well and have low water content. They are manufactured using Reverse Process III, a patented cast molding technology. The extremely low center thickness of the lenses allows the best possible oxygen transmission to the eye for ultimate comfort and hydration.
SofLens 38 contact lenses were also designed with convenience in mind. They are bi-weekly disposable contact lenses, meaning you will have the crisp vision of new contacts every other week. SofLens 38's increased mid-peripheral thickness also facilitates easy handling. To help find them in solution, the lenses have a light tint that will not change the color of the eye. The lenses even have an inversion indicator, which helps you to see if the lens is inside out, making the SofLens 38 lens easy to work with even on your busiest mornings.
SofLens 38 (Optima FW) Reviews
SofLens 38 is VERY dependable
I have also worn these lenses for over 15 years. Every time the eye doc has tried to switch me to a higher water content lens that would supposedly be so much better for my eyes, I have ended up switching back to SofLens 38. I especially notice the deposit resistance and the length of time I am able to wear them comfortably. Taking them out at night is best and they typically last me a few months per pair.
Great lenses for life
I have worn these Bausch & Lomb Softlens 38 contact lenses for 15 years (since 12 years old!). They are extraordinarilly comfortable and 98% of the time you don't even know they are in your eyes. Yes, like any lenses, your eyes may get dry after wearing them 18 hours or you may tear a lens once a year but overall they are great, reliable, comfortable - and now a days the soft lens 38 contacts are very affordable too!
SofLens 38 helped me with dry eyes
I had been wearing various high water content lenses for many years and recently my eyes were drying out and my lenses were very uncomfortable. Through research I learned that a lower H2O lens may help. I tried the Bausch and Lomb SofLens 38 contacts and they did the trick. Very comfortable and reasonably priced.
