Product Information

Boston XO contact lenses are rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses manufactured with technology by trusted eye care brand, Bausch + Lomb. Unlike soft lenses, RGP lenses like Boston XO lack water, which makes them more resistant to protein and deposit buildup. Boston XO contacts are made in a wide range of parameters and can be custom-made to perfectly fit your eyes.

Features & Benefits

Boston XO contacts are RGP lenses that can be worn daily for up to a year. To ensure the durability of these contacts, remove, clean, and disinfect them nightly.

Unlike soft lenses that take a one-size-fits-all approach, RGP lenses are made to order. As such, each Boston XO lens comfortably fits the natural shape of your eye. When lenses fit properly, they’re less likely to shift and cause vision disturbances.

Because Boston XO contacts are made for each patient, these lenses can address all kinds of refractive errors, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (blurred near vision), and astigmatism (blurred near and distance vision).

Boston XO contacts are also more resistant to deposit buildup than their soft lens counterparts because they’re made of hexafocon A, a fluorosilicone acrylate material with a high Dk rating of 100. This essentially means that hexafocon A allows high levels of oxygen to pass through the lens and into the eye to keep it white, clear, and healthy.

Like most RGP lenses, Boston XO contacts also retain their shape when you blink. This is why Boston XO contacts and other RGP lenses provide sharper vision than soft lenses. Moreover, Boston XO contacts help protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. 

On top of that, Boston XO contacts come with a light blue tint so you can easily spot them in your contact lens case. This visibility tint won't change the natural color of your eyes. That being said, you can order Boston XO contacts in various colors, including blue, ice blue, violet, and green, if you want to try a different eye color.

Additionally, Boston XO contacts are less expensive in the long run due to their infrequent replacement schedule. 

Who They're For

Boston XO contact lenses are the best choice for people who are very discerning and are willing to go through a period of adaptation to contact lens wear. 

Like other RGP lenses, Boston XO contacts are also a good choice for some people with astigmatism for whom soft contacts don’t produce the desired visual acuity. They’re also great for people with keratoconus, a progressive eye disease that may eventually result in loss of vision.

RGP lenses like Boston XO are also suited for people who need contact lenses after refractive surgery.

Because Boston XO contact lenses come in various bright colors, they’re a great RGP lens choice for people who want to try a different eye color.

How To Put In Boston XO Lenses

Boston XO contacts are RGP lenses and as such, you should follow the standard procedure for this type of lens. Wash and dry your hands before touching the contacts or your eyes. Scoop your first lens out of the case with the index finger of your dominant hand and rinse it with a rinse it with a multipurpose solution. Inspect the lens for any tears or debris. Using the middle finger of your dominant hand, pull down your lower eyelid. If necessary, use the middle finger of your non-dominant hand to pull your upper eyelid. Stare straight ahead and gently place the lens on your eye. Blink a few times to center the lens. Repeat this with the other lens. Don’t panic if the lens doesn’t feel comfortable as soon as you put it in. RGP contacts typically take longer to get used to wearing than soft lenses, but regular use is key for comfort.

Boston XO FAQs

Can you take a nap in Boston XO contacts?

No, you cannot nap in Boston XO lenses. As Boston XO are not approved for overnight wear (a full night's sleep), napping in them for a short period of time is not advisable either, and it can lead to eye-health complications. Napping for any length of time with contacts not designed for such an environment is risky. Choose a lens that is approved for overnight wear and seek guidance from your ECP if this is a requirement for you.

How many boxes of Boston XO do I need to buy to last 12 months?

You need 1 box(es) of Boston XO contacts to last you for 12 months. These amounts pertain to a single eye, so to cover both eyes, double these amounts.

Is ordering Boston XO contact lenses online safe?

Yes, all contact lenses, including Boston XO ordered from Lens.com are FDA-approved, genuine lenses manufactured by top contact lens brands such as Bausch + Lomb and Alcon, and backed by a money-back guarantee. Order and fulfillment processes adhere to mandates set by US federal law, including the requirement to verify valid prescriptions, without exception. We go above and beyond, by making the experience efficient, easy, and pleasant with 24/7/365 customer service and a money-back guarantee.

How long does it take to adjust to wearing Boston XO contacts?

If you're wearing Boston XO for the first time, it can take several days to a couple of weeks for you to adjust to wearing them on a daily basis. Contacts vary from brand to brand in terms of their shape, material, breathability, wetting agents used, and other factors, thus requiring an adjustment period. Rigid/hard lenses can sometimes take longer to adjust to, whereas most contacts in use today employ a soft form of silicone that is typically easy to adjust to.

What if I don't have my prescription? Can I still order Boston XO contacts?

Yes, you can still order Boston XO if you don't have a hard copy of your RX/prescription on hand. As long as you have a valid contact lens prescription (which will be on file at your ECP's) you can still place an order with us at Lens.com. Choose your lens, provide us with the contact info of your ECP and we'll do the rest. If your ECP is unable to respond to our request for the info needed in a timely manner, your lenses will automatically be shipped out to you. This is the process put in place by the FTC to ensure your rights as a consumer.

Can I use my eyeglass prescription for Boston XO contact lenses?

Unfortunately no, you can't use your eyeglass prescription for Boston XO lenses. Your eyeglass prescription only has the power part of the contact lens prescription. In addition to the power, the proper base curve (BC) and diameter (DIA) are needed to order contact lenses. Contact lenses come in different sizes and must be fit to your eye by an Optometrist or Ophthalmologist. As a replacement center, we can only sell you contact lenses that you are already wearing successfully. So ultimately eyeglass prescriptions are not the same as a prescription for Boston XO contacts. See an ECP/optometrist if you're looking for
