Product Details

Product Information:

If you’re searching for contact lenses that allow you to see clearly and comfortably, SofLens 38 is an outstanding choice. Whether you’re just making the switch from wearing eyeglasses to contact lenses or are a long-time contact lens wearer, Bausch and Lomb’s SofLens 38 will suit any lifestyle.

SofLens 38 contact lenses, manufactured by Bausch & Lomb and formerly known as Optima FW, feature a high-performance, ultra-thin design. For those who have worn Optima FW, SofLens 38 is completely identical, providing you with the same comfort and clarity you’re used to. The lens material, known as polymacon, provides sharp vision, comfort, and deposit-resistance that you can count on. As indicated by their name, the lenses are composed of 38 percent water, which is ideal for wearers who suffer from dry eyes. Their lower water content helps decrease irritation caused by looking at a computer screen or the dryness of air conditioning.

Each pair of Bausch and Lomb SofLens 38 contact lenses are manufactured using Reverse Process III, a patented cast molding technology. The extremely low center thickness of the lenses allows the best possible oxygen transmission to the eye for ultimate comfort and hydration, not to mention enhanced flexibility. SofLens 38 contact lenses are also designed with convenience in mind. They’re 1-2 week disposable contact lenses, meaning you’ll have the crisp vision of fresh, new contacts every other week. Depending on your eye-care professional’s recommendations, you may wear the lenses up to seven days continuously or remove them at night on a daily basis.

SofLens 38's increased mid-peripheral thickness also facilitates easy handling. For increased convenience, SofLens 38’s have a very light tint that allows the wearer to easily locate them when they’re in the solution; this tint, however, will not change the color of the eye. The lenses even have an inversion indicator, which indicates to wearers that the lens is inside out, making the SofLens 38 lens easy to work with, even when you’re in a hurry. Furthermore, they are available in three base curves in powers that range from +4.00D to -9.00D, so most people will find the lens in their prescription. As a matter of fact, almost every Bausch & Lomb SofLens 38 review rates the lenses very highly, with many individuals being repeat buyers.

Since they’re weekly contact lenses, each box of Bausch and Lomb SofLens 38 comes with six lenses per box. In other words, you won’t find SofLens 38 contact lenses at a lower price—anywhere on the web or in stores, guaranteed!

SofLens 38 are just as awesome as Optima FW

I found out that SofLens 38 were the replacement for Optima FW, so I quickly made the switch over to them. They fit and worked just as great, and felt just as comfortable on my eyes! Still no dryness or irritation, making them great for all day wear.

Everything about these lenses are awesome

If you have trouble putting in and taking out your contacts, these SofLens 38 lenses are perfect for you! They are slightly tinted, and have an inversion indicator, to alert you when they are inside out. I can insert and remove them with no issues. Thank you SofLens 38!

Really impressed with my SofLens 38

SofLens 38 are a great and affordable lens! They fit well in my budget and lasted a long time, making them even better for the price. I had no problems with wear after two weeks of use, and my eyes didn't feel dried out either.

I think its a great value getting SofLens 38

Six lenses per box meant I don't have to purchase SofLens 38 as often, helping me save money. They fit really well and felt flexible and easy to put in my eye. I didn't have red eyes at the end of the day either, so I can wear them long term without problems.

SofLens 38 are all good

I stare at computers all day, and tend to get irritated eyes after a while. While wearing SofLens 38 I noticed I didn't get any irritation and my eyes still felt pretty good at the end of the day! I feel I can wear these at work all day and not have to worry.

I'm loving SofLens 38 contact lenses

I recently purchased these SofLens 38 lenses, and so far I love them! The 1-2 week disposable schedule is perfect, with a fresh pair of contacts every 7-14 days. I love that I can wear them continuously or take them out at night, depending on my day!

very pleased with these lenses

I have never tried any others (other than my first time ever fitting contacts) but these Soflens 38 seem to work great. I rarely have to use I drops and I get about 2 weeks out of these - sometimes longer.

My Favorite Lenses

I didn't wear contacts until about 3 years ago. I love these soft lenses! I take them out daily to rinse and put right back in, but sometimes I can go 2-3 days just putting eye drops in and going on about my day. Not sure if that's the right thing to do but it works for me.

Awesome Lenses!

I've worn Soflens 38 contacts for a long time and it seems like the last two years I had one or two issues with tearing. But over the years these have been awesome.

Great for all day wear and activities

Very thin contact great for all day wear and activities. I find the best success for the Soflens 38 is to follow directions for change out of every two weeks.

SofLens 38 is VERY dependable

I have also worn these lenses for over 15 years. Every time the eye doc has tried to switch me to a higher water content lens that would supposedly be so much better for my eyes, I have ended up switching back to SofLens 38. I especially notice the deposit resistance and the length of time I am able to wear them comfortably. Taking them out at night is best and they typically last me a few months per pair.

Great lenses for life

I have worn these Bausch & Lomb Softlens 38 contact lenses for 15 years (since 12 years old!). They are extraordinarilly comfortable and 98% of the time you don't even know they are in your eyes. Yes, like any lenses, your eyes may get dry after wearing them 18 hours or you may tear a lens once a year but overall they are great, reliable, comfortable - and now a days the soft lens 38 contacts are very affordable too!

SofLens 38 helped me with dry eyes

I had been wearing various high water content lenses for many years and recently my eyes were drying out and my lenses were very uncomfortable. Through research I learned that a lower H2O lens may help. I tried the Bausch and Lomb SofLens 38 contacts and they did the trick. Very comfortable and reasonably priced.
