Regular contact lenses have an even, spherical curve over the entire lens.

Sofmed 55 lenses also have a 55 percent water content, keeping your eyes moist all day.

Sofmed 55 contact lenses are 1-2 week disposable contact lenses, which means they can be worn daily for up to 14 days. However, they should be removed and sanitized each night and reinserted in the morning. After 2 weeks, they should be discarded and replaced with a brand new pair of contact lenses. Using a shorter replacement schedule helps keep eyes fresh, clear, and healthy as there is little time for build-up and allergens to accumulate and irritate eyes. For current contact lens wearers who experience irritation and discomfort, Sofmed 55 may be the alternative you’ve been looking for.
