Product Information

Boston XO2 contact lenses are high-quality, high-performance gas permeable contact lenses brought to you with technology by Bausch & Lomb. Manufactured from a premium hyper Dk gas permeable material, these contacts offer superior oxygen transmission for enhanced ocular health and a brighter, whiter appearance of the eyes. This material also facilitates optimum surface wettability, which keeps eyes comfortably moist. With outstanding stability, Boston XO2 contact lenses deliver consistently clear vision without the need for constant adjustments and feature excellent saline absorption. Plus, they’re custom made for your exact prescription!

When compared to soft contacts, Boston XO2 contacts are much more resistant to protein deposits because they have 0% water content. In addition, their rigid quality provides improved visual acuity, durability, and handling. With proper cleaning, and care, these gas permeable contact lenses can be worn for a long time, as long as your prescription doesn’t change. To maximize convenience, Boston XO2 lenses are available in a variety of different colored tints for enhanced visibility. Lens wearers also have the option of choosing to incorporate UV protection along with the tint for protection from the sun's harsh UV rays. These hard contact lenses can be made to correct common conditions, such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia, as well as irregular corneal conditions, including keratoconus and those resulting from unsuccessful LASIK procedures.

As a daily wear lens, Boston XO2 is not intended for overnight wear and must be removed before sleeping. Clinical studies demonstrate that the failure to follow these instructions increases the risk of serious adverse reactions, including painful infections. Your eye-care practitioner will determine the best wear schedule for you- if theirs differs from the manufacturers recommended replacement schedule, follow the advice of your doctor as they know the health and performance of your eyes better than anyone.

For an ideal combination of comfort, performance, and convenience, choose Boston XO2 for clarity you can count on. For the best value on this brand of gas permeable contact lenses, choose Lens.com. With hassle-free returns, 100% money-back satisfaction, and quick shipping, you can’t go wrong with Lens.com.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Tried and true

I have worn these lens for 40+ Years. Of course I recommend them highly if you wear gas permeable lens.

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.

Amazing!

I have been a long time wearer of this type of contact lens and I have dry eye as well due to meds and doesn't dry out like soft lenses do. They remain moist on eye and provides hyper clear vision correction and are even more comfortable than soft lenses with zero feeling like your soft contacts are suctioned on your eyes. Boston XO2 lenses provides ample oxygen so much that I can wear my lenses quite late into the evening or early morning without any effects of oxygen loss like red irritated eyes. My eyes always stay white even after more than 18+ hours of wear. They are easy to clean and maintain. I highly recommend rgp lenses for those that want a premium contact lens that stays moist, can be worn for long periods, and lasts up to two years.

Boston XO2 feel great.

I play a lot of racquetball so I need a contact lens that won't pop out of my eye. I used to wear weekly disposable lenses and they would always fall out of my eye. Its kind of hard to play racquetball half blind. I discussed this with my doctor and she pointed me towards the Boston XO2 gas permeable contact lens. I haven't had one fall out on me yet and the lens feels great in my eye so I am sold.

"Boston XO2 guarantees crispy, clear vision"

I'm usually hesitant to try new things but these Boston XO2 contacts were worth it. I have never felt anything like them and I never really had any complains about my old lenses but when I tried these the difference was unbelievable. The lens is very comfortable I don't feel in my eyes for a second. The clarity of vision is like nothing I have ever experienced- it is like watch the world in HD. This a great product and I definitely recommend it.
