Product Information

Bausch + Lomb’s Optima 38/SP contacts are designed to deliver excellent vision and comfort. A leading brand in soft daily-wear lenses for over 10 years, Optima 38/SP contacts can correct nearsightedness and farsightedness.

Features & Benefits

Optima 38/SP contacts are monthly disposable lenses intended for daily wear only, meaning they need to be removed before sleep.

Unlike other conventional lenses, Optima 38/SP contacts have finely tapered edges that help to reduce friction between the eyelid and the lens. This is why Optima 38/SP contacts still feel very comfortable at the end of the day.

Optima 38/SP contacts are also made comfortable by polymacon, a non-ionic lens material with a low water content. Low water content contacts dry less on the eye than high water content contacts, making the former a solid candidate for people with dry or sensitive eyes.

Optima 38/SP contacts also have a blue visibility tint so you can easily spot them in your lens case during insertion and removal.

Who They’re For

Optima 38/SP contacts are a good choice for nearsighted or farsighted individuals who are looking for lenses with advanced features to ensure clear vision and long-lasting comfort.

Optima 38/SP contacts are also suitable for lens wearers who prefer the convenience of a reusable lens over a daily disposable lens.
