Product Information

Optimum Extra contacts from Contamac are ideal for special eye needs. Made specifically to meet the needs of your prescription, Optimum Extra contacts can address virtually every refractive error, from nearsightedness to presbyopia.

Features & Benefits

Optimum Extra contacts are rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses indicated for daily wear. When properly cleaned and cared for, Optimum Extra contacts can last up to a year before they need to be replaced.

Optimum Extra contacts are made of roflufocon D, a lens material with high oxygen permeability (100 Dk/t). This means it allows plenty of oxygen to reach the eyes — oxygen our eyes need to stay moist, clear, and healthy.

Another great thing about Optimum Extra contacts is they’re custom-made to fit your eyes perfectly. Properly fitting contacts won’t shift out of place during wear, ensuring stable vision. Optimum Extra contacts are also naturally resistant to deposit buildup because they contain little to no water.

Who They’re For

Optimum Extra contacts are a solid candidate for people who are willing to go through a period of adaptation to contact lens wear as well as those who can commit to a strict lens care routine. Optimum Extra contacts are also ideal for people with refractive errors for whom soft contacts don’t produce the desired visual acuity.

Optimum Extra FAQs

Can you take a nap in Optimum Extra contacts?

No, you cannot nap in Optimum Extra lenses. As Optimum Extra 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.

Who makes Optimum Extra contacts?

Optimum Extra contacts are made by Contamac U.S., and sold on Lens.com.

How many boxes of Optimum Extra do I need to buy to last 6 months, or 12 months?

You need 1 box(es) of Optimum Extra 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 Optimum Extra contact lenses online safe?

Yes, all contact lenses, including Optimum Extra 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 Optimum Extra contacts?

If you're wearing Optimum Extra 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 Optimum Extra contact lenses?

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

Is Optimum Extra contact lens FDA-approved?

Yes, Optimum Extra 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 Optimum Extra sold on Lens.com authentic? Why is it cheaper than other vendors?

Yes, all contacts sold on Lens.com are 100% authentic, including Optimum Extra 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. We stand by our product and offer 24/7 live-customer support.

How old do you have to be to wear Optimum Extra contact lenses?

Like most contacts, including Optimum Extra, 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.

Where can I buy Optimum Extra contacts?

Optimum Extra lenses are available to purchase at online retailers, some brick-and-mortar stores, and eye care professionals near you. The lowest prices and largest selections can typically be found online where retailers can take advantage of high volume and lower costs which can benefit customers. Lens.com offers exclusive rebate/rewards savings.

Can I buy Optimum Extra for someone else?

Yes, you can buy Optimum Extra contacts online for someone else, for example a child or someone you're assisting with making a purchase. The same simple steps apply. At Lens.com you'll only need to know what contacts you want, their prescription, the contact info of the person's ECP (for prescription verification), and a credit card. We'll do the rest! 

How do I buy Optimum Extra contacts online?

We can contact your eye doctor to confirm your prescription on your behalf. If you have a physical copy of your prescription, great, then we won't need to contact your eye doctor. it's very simple, and if you have any difficulties, our friendly Customer Service Representatives are here to help. These steps are based on rules laid out by federal policy to protect consumer rights and we take full advantage of them to ensure an easy and timely experience for you.

How to tell if my Optimum Extra contacts are inside out?

You will know Optimum Extra 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.

Are online Optimum Extra contact lenses the same as from your eye doctor?

Yes, generally, Optimum Extra contacts purchased online are the exact same lenses you purchase in a store or a doctor's office. The guarantee that this will be the case of course varies based on where online you make your purchase. At Lens.com, all contacts are authentic, FDA-approved, and the same as you might purchase from your ECP but at a discounted price, thanks to our lower cost and better volumes.

How do I read my Optimum Extra prescription?

There are values for power, base curve, diameter, and other parameters, some of which you'll need to specify when ordering contacts. Click here, to see further info on how to read your Optimum Extra contact lens prescription.

How many boxes of Optimum Extra do I need to buy to last 12 months?

Do I need an rx/prescription to buy Optimum Extra contacts online?

What is not needed is a physical copy of your valid prescription. We need only to verify the existence of this, which is filed by your ECP, and we can do this for you. This is required by US federal law. Prescription verification is easy at Lens.com. We have several methods some of which avoid the need to contact your OD.

Can I renew my Optimum Extra RX/prescription online?

At Lens.com. we need only your previous prescription to begin the quick process of renewing your prescription online, and it takes only 10 minutes. In fact, you can renew any contact prescription, for any brand with Lens.com, including for a prescription for glasses. Of course, this service is only available in the 37 states which are not under the thumb of the American Optometric Association. Check here to see if you live in a privileged state.

Can I be allergic to Optimum Extra contacts?

Contacts, like Optimum Extra 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.

Where can I buy Optimum Extra contacts near me?

Optimum Extra contacts are typically available to purchase at your nearest brick-and-mortar eyewear store or ECP's office. 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.

Can Optimum Extra contacts expire?

Like all contact lenses, Optimum Extra 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.

What is the water content of Optimum Extra?

Optimum Extra 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 Optimum Extra 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 Optimum Extra discontinued?

No, Optimum Extra contacts have not been discontinued by Contamac U.S.. 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 Optimum Extra?

Yes, you do require a valid prescription in order to buy Optimum Extra 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.

Optimum Extra Contact Lenses

I have been wearing the Optimum Extra gas permeable contact lens for about 4 years now and it is great. I would recommend this gas permeable contact lens to anyone who is on the search right now. I have never found a better contact lens so save yourself some time go directly to the Optimum Extra contacts.

Optimum Extra-There really is nothing like it.

I love the idea of an RGP; long lifetime, custom made, but I could never find one that was as good as a disposable contact lens until I tried the Optimum Extra. I have been wearing contacts for 15 years and I've never worn a contact lens like this one. Its is amazingly comfortable and my vision is perfect. There really is nothing like it.
