Product Information

SilSoft™ Aphakic contact lenses are specially designed for adults who have recently had cataract surgery without an intraocular lens implant. Made of a silicone hydrogel lens material, these contacts allow high levels of oxygen to reach the eye. As such, SilSoft Aphakic contacts can be worn overnight.

Features & Benefits

SilSoft Aphakic contacts are silicone hydrogel lenses that can be worn for several months to a year before they need to be replaced. They can be worn daily or continuously for up to a maximum of 30 days between removals for cleaning and disinfecting. Keep in mind that not everyone can wear these contacts for a full 30 days. If your eye care professional (ECP) recommends a different wearing schedule, follow their guidance. It is also recommended that you clean and disinfect your contacts whenever you remove them for whatever reason.

SilSoft Aphakic contacts allow more oxygen to pass through than any other contact lens for aphakia. In fact, these contacts have an incredibly high oxygen transmissibility value of 340. The higher the value, the more oxygen can pass through the contact lens to the eye. Our eyes need oxygen to stay moist, clear, and healthy.

SilSoft Aphakic contacts have only approximately 0.2 percent water content. This is a very low water content, but don’t worry. Low water content contacts won’t actually dry your eyes. On the contrary, they may help keep your eyes hydrated without the need for rewetting drops as, in general, lower water content lenses tend to draw less moisture from your eyes. This makes SilSoft Aphakic contacts ideal for people who experience dry eyes during lens wear.

The SilSoft lens material itself ensures a smooth fit. It also keeps the lens stable, so you can enjoy clear vision all day without having to worry about your contacts moving around.

Who They’re For

SilSoft Aphakic contacts are recommended for adults who have had cataract surgery without an intraocular lens being implanted.

Bausch + Lomb also states in its SilSoft Aphakic fitting guide that the contacts are indicated for vision correction in aphakic individuals with non-diseased eyes who exhibit refractive astigmatism of 1.50D or less and corneal astigmatism of 2.00D or less. However, supplemental glasses may be required for aphakic individuals in some conditions to provide near vision or to compensate for uncorrected refractive astigmatism.

About Aphakia

Aphakia is when a person does not have a lens in one or both eyes. The lens is a clear, flexible structure behind the iris (the colored part of your eye) that focuses light rays on the retina. Without it, the eye is out of focus, vision is blurry, and colors may appear faded. You may also have trouble focusing on an object as your distance from it changes. Without the lens, your iris may even jiggle or tremble as you move your eyes. Aphakia may be caused by a congenital defect, an eye injury, or cataract (a cloudy area in the lens) surgery. In adults and children, aphakia is typically diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam.

Silsoft Aphakic Adult FAQs

Can you take a nap in Silsoft Aphakic Adult contacts?

Yes, you can nap in Silsoft Aphakic Adult lenses. As Silsoft Aphakic Adult is approved for overnight wear (a full night's sleep), napping in them for a short period of time is not a problem. As always though, make sure you're OK to do so with your ECP even if they are technically approved as every individual's situation is different. Whether sleeping overnight or napping with contacts, this is an environment that reduces the amount of oxygen that reaches your eye, hence the precautions you need to take in terms of choosing the right lens.

How many boxes of Silsoft Aphakic Adult do I need to buy to last 6 months, or 12 months?

You need 1 box(es) of Silsoft Aphakic Adult 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.

If you're wearing Silsoft Aphakic Adult 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.

Are Silsoft Aphakic Adult contacts, monthly?

Delivery was quick. I was a bit concerned that purchasing online at a competitive price might compromise the expiration date - But that was not true at all! Thank you!
