Product Information

Boston XO2 contact lenses offer unparalleled fit, clear vision, and superior comfort. Made from a patented rigid gas-permeable (RGP) material, these lenses keep your eyes feeling fresh all day. Boston XO2 contacts are available in a wide range of parameters.

Features & Benefits

Boston XO2 contacts are RGP lenses indicated for daily wear. With proper cleaning and care, these contacts can last up to a year before they need to be replaced. This makes Boston XO2 contacts a great choice for the cost-conscious contact lens wearer.

Unlike soft lenses that take a one-size-fits-all approach, RGP lenses like Boston XO2 are made to order. This ensures that each Boston XO2 lens perfectly fits your eyes. When contact lenses fit properly, they are less likely to move or rotate during wear.

Because Boston XO2 contacts are custom-made for each wearer, they can address virtually any refractive error, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (blurred near vision), and astigmatism (blurred near and distance vision). Boston XO2 contacts can be made to correct irregular corneal conditions as well, including keratoconus and those resulting from unsuccessful LASIK procedures.

Another great thing about Boston XO2 contacts is they are naturally resistant to protein and deposit buildup. That’s because they contain zero water and are manufactured from a patented, ultra-smooth material that resists dirt and debris. This premium RGP material is also highly breathable, which means it allows plenty of nourishing oxygen to pass through to the eye. Our eyes need oxygen to stay white, clear, and healthy.

Boston XO2 contacts also retain their shape when you blink. This is why RGP lenses like Boston XO2 contacts typically provide sharper vision than soft, pliable hydrogel and silicone hydrogel lenses.

Additionally, Boston XO2 contacts are available in a variety of tints for easier handling during insertion and removal. These contacts can also be custom-made to include ultraviolet (UV) protection.

Who They’re For

Boston XO2 contacts are a great choice for people who are willing to go through a period of adaptation to contact lens wear. Because of their high oxygen transmissibility, Boston XO2 contacts are also ideal for people who struggle with dry eyes during lens wear.

Additionally, Boston XO2 contacts are suitable for some people with refractive errors (e.g., myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia) for whom soft lenses don't produce the desired visual acuity.

RGP lenses like Boston XO2 contacts are also a good option for people with keratoconus, a progressive eye disease that may eventually result in loss of vision.

How to Put In Boston XO2 Contacts

Boston XO2 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 multipurpose cleaning solution recommended by your eye care professional (ECP). Inspect the lens for any tears or debris. Hold your eyelid open, stare straight ahead, and gently place the lens on your eye. Blink a few times to center the lens. Repeat for the other lens. Don’t panic if the lens doesn’t feel comfortable immediately. RGP lenses typically take longer to get used to wearing than soft lenses, but regular use is key for comfort.

Boston XO2 FAQs

Can you take a nap in Boston XO2 contacts?

No, you cannot nap in Boston XO2 lenses. As Boston XO2 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 XO2 do I need to buy to last 6 months, or 12 months?

You need 1 box(es) of Boston XO2 contacts to last you for 6 months. In order to last you for 12 months, you'll need 1 box(es). These amounts pertain to a single eye, so to cover both eyes, double these amounts.

Is ordering Boston XO2 contact lenses online safe?

Yes, all contact lenses, including Boston XO2 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 XO2 contacts?

If you're wearing Boston XO2 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.

Can I use my eyeglass prescription for Boston XO2 contact lenses?

Unfortunately no, you can't use your eyeglass prescription for Boston XO2 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 XO2 contacts. See an ECP/optometrist if you're looking for a contact lens prescription and fitting as a first-time-wearer.

Is Boston XO2 contact lens FDA-approved?

Yes, Boston XO2 is FDA-approved. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates all contact lenses as prescription medical devices and thus must go through an approval process, after which they can be legally sold in the US (if approved). Lens.com sells only FDA-approved contact lenses. From lenses to address near, farsightedness, astigmatism, and even cosmetic lenses, our inventory consists only of FDA-approved contacts.

Are Boston XO2 sold on Lens.com authentic? Why is it cheaper than other vendors?

Yes, all contacts sold on Lens.com are 100% authentic, including Boston XO2 and come with a money-back guarantee. Lens.com is able to sell contacts extremely competitively by buying and selling in volume, by smartly managing costs and overhead, and by accepting smaller but fairer profit margins versus other e-tailers and ECPs in exchange for building a satisfied customer base.

How old do you have to be to wear Boston XO2 contact lenses?

Like most contacts, including Boston XO2, they can be worn by teens and potentially pre-teens as well, per the direction of an ECP. In general, there is no fixed minimum age for wearing contacts, as it's a judgment call based on lifestyle habits, budget, and of course your ECP's guidance. Contacts do require care and consistency in usage and maintenance/cleaning and these are the lifestyle factors you should consider when thinking about contacts for a child.

How to tell if my Boston XO2 contacts are inside out?

You will know Boston XO2 contacts are inside-out if they feel uncomfortable in your eye. An inside-out contact lens will also move too much when you blink, and they may even pop out. Some contacts feature an inside-out mark that can be checked once removed, but this is not the case with all lenses.

Can I be allergic to Boston XO2 contacts?

Contacts, like Boston XO2 are made of hypoallergenic materials, meaning the contacts themselves don't usually cause an allergic reaction. In most cases, what causes an allergic reaction is a buildup of contaminants on the contacts. If you experience redness, watering, and other symptoms of a possible allergic reaction, remove your contacts immediately and consult your ECP.

Can Boston XO2 contacts expire?

Like all contact lenses, Boston XO2 lenses do expire. The expiration date will be stamped on the box itself or on the aluminum fold of the blister pack in either a YYYY-MM or YYYY-MM-DD format. Typically, the expiration date for contacts is several years after the date of packaging.

How many boxes of Boston XO2 do I need to buy to last 12 months?

You need 1 box(es) of Boston XO2 contacts to last you for 12 months. These amounts pertain to a single eye, so to cover both eyes, double these amounts.

Where can I buy Boston XO2 contacts near me?

However, the lowest prices and largest inventory of these lenses can be found online, such as at Lens.com, where greater volumes and lower overhead can translate into significant savings over store-bought contacts.

What is the water content of Boston XO2?

Boston XO2 contacts have a water content of 0%. The higher the water content in a contact lens, the more oxygen reaches the cornea during lens wear. There are other factors at play however so water content alone isn't enough of a factor to judge a lens' performance for a given person. High water content lenses can feel comfortable initially but may dry out over time, but this is not always the case. So it's good to know about the water content of a lens, but it's not everything. Consult your ECP to find out the best options for you.

How should I store my Boston XO2 contact lenses?

Daily disposable contacts cannot be stored and must be discarded at the end of each day. Even if you wear them for only a few hours one day, you still need to discard them after that use and wear a fresh pair of contacts the next day. 

You may keep weekly contacts in multi-purpose contact solution in a tightly closed contact lens case for up to 2 weeks. 

For monthly replacement lenses you may store them in contact solution in a tightly closed contact lens case for up to 30 days.

Is Boston XO2 discontinued?

No, Boston XO2 contacts have not been discontinued by Polymer Technology. They continue to be produced, marketed, and sold on Lens.com. Typically, if a contact lens ceases to be produced by the manufacturer, we will indicate it clearly on our product page as being a discontinued lens and it won't be an option to purchase them.

Do I need a prescription, or a copy of my prescription in order to buy Boston XO2?

Yes, you do require a valid prescription in order to buy Boston XO2 or any contacts in the United States, per Federal Law. However, at Lens.com having a copy of your prescription in your possession is not required to place an order (though be aware it's something that is owed to you by your ECP once you complete an eye examination so that you can choose where to purchase your contacts). If you don't have a copy in your possession, Lens.com representatives will help verifying your prescription by calling your ECP for you. Provide us with the basic information, sit back, and relax.

Brilliant service

I had RGP lenses from Lens.com for a couple of days, having submitted my prescription details. They are comfortable, clear and they arrived within the expected timeframe. I would buy from them again.

Boston XO2

Lenses are comfortable. I ordered blue and these do not look blue to me. Maybe a very slight hint of blue.

Great value!

After my eye exam, the office called me and asked if I'd like to order contacts from them. They wanted over $200.00 for the same pair I received from Lens.com for under $90.00 including shipping and handling. The contacts arrived relatively quickly and fit perfectly, I've been using Lens.com for a number of years now and always satisfied.

No more comfortable than EOs

My optometrist has always prescribed Boston EO gas-perms, either because he knows that line well or because my correction needs are high (about 8 diopter plus a 3-diopter astigmatism). But this time, I ignored his choice and selected Boston XO2, and Lens.com kindly obliged. I hoped that XO2s would keep my corneas feeling less irritated by edema on long days at the computer when I'd forget to blink.
Well, they don't. By evening, my eyes feel just as irritated as before.
As for visual acuity, I'm probably seeing distant details as acutely as I did when I wore EOs. Maybe a hair less acutely. But that could be because I'm almost 63.
Next time, I'll go back to EOs or maybe try XO to split the difference.
By the way: In the XO2, the green tint is so light it might as well be colorless...and if I drop it on a carpet, I'll probably never find it. I would guess that all 'green' Boston lenses use this tint.
