Product Information

Optima FW disposable contact lenses (6 pack) combine a high-performance design with a time-tested material to provide crisp, clear vision and long-lasting comfort. Breathable and deposit-resistant, Optima FW contacts also keep your eyes healthy all day. These contacts are available in near- and farsighted prescriptions.

Features & Benefits

Optima FW contacts are bi-weekly lenses. They can be worn daily for up to 14 days or continuously for up to seven days, after which they must be removed, disposed of, and replaced with a fresh pair of contacts. Note that not everyone can wear these contacts for a full seven days. If your eye care professional (ECP) recommends a different wearing schedule, follow their guidance.

Optima FW contacts deliver exceptional comfort, thanks to polymacon. This time-tested lens material is resistant to deposit buildup, which can cause irritation and other eye problems. Optima FW contacts also hold just enough water (38 percent) to keep your eyes moist and comfortable all day — not so much that the contacts feel thick and not too little that the contacts are too fragile to handle.

On top of that, Optima FW contacts are exceptionally breathable because of their ultra-thin design. As such, Optima FW contacts allow nourishing oxygen to reach the eyes, which need oxygen to stay healthy.

Optima FW contacts are available in near- and farsighted prescriptions.

Who They're For

Optima FW contacts are ideal for people who are nearsighted or farsighted, and are looking for contacts with advanced features to ensure crisp, clear vision and long-lasting comfort.

Optima FW contacts are also a great option for anyone who has a busy lifestyle and needs a flexible wearing schedule. They’re also ideal for those who prefer the convenience of a bi-weekly lens over a daily disposable or a monthly one.

Since Optima FW contacts are made of a deposit-resistant material, they’re also a great choice for people with sensitive eyes.

Don’t let deposit buildup get in the way of you and clear vision. Talk to your ECP today about trying Optima FW contacts.

About Nearsightedness and Farsightedness

Nearsightedness and farsightedness are refractive errors. Nearsightedness is when nearby objects look clear but distant objects appear blurry. If you are nearsighted, you can read a book clearly but have trouble seeing well enough to drive a car. Farsightedness, on the other hand, is when distant objects look clear but nearby objects appear blurry. If you are farsighted, you need to squint to see clearly. You may also experience general eye discomfort after reading for a time. Nearsightedness and farsightedness are commonly treated with prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. In both cases, these corrective lenses improve vision by changing the way light enters your eye. Procedures like LASIK may also be able to permanently correct either refractive error by reshaping the cornea (the eye's clear, protective outer layer).
