3. Biofinity
4. Air Optix
5. Biotrue ONEday

Thinking about wearing contact lenses for the first time? Or interested in trying out a different brand? Whatever the case, it’s important that you keep yourself informed on the most popular contact lens brands. Each brand will typically offer multiple types of contacts, including for astigmatism, daily disposable, colored lenses, and others. You and your eye care professional can decide together which brand is best for you.

With dozens of brands available, keeping up can be daunting. Lens.com can make the process a lot easier. We carry all major lens brands, but here are 5 of our most popular brands in 2019.

  1. ACUVUE®

Manufactured by Johnson and Johnson, the ACUVUE® brand has been providing high-quality contact lenses and exceptional eye care to patients all over the world for more than 20 years. They have an extensive range of contact lens solutions for every vision problem, whether it’s myopia, presbyopia, or astigmatism. They have daily, bi-weekly, and monthly lenses to fit patients’ varying replacement requirements.

  1. DAILIES®

DAILIES® is a brand manufactured by Alcon. From the brand name itself, DAILIES® specializes in offering patients daily disposable contact lenses that patients can wear from morning till night without a drop in comfort level. DAILIES® has contact lenses for all kinds of vision problems including presbyopia and astigmatism.

  1. Biofinity®

CooperVision is the company behind the Biofinity® brand of contact lenses. All Biofinity® products are monthly contact lenses designed to give patients the highest levels of comfort possible—even through extended periods of wear. Biofinity® contact lenses allow the eyes to breathe and retain moisture for long-lasting comfort.

  1. AIR OPTIX®

Like DAILIES®, AIR OPTIX® is manufactured by Alcon. Unlike DAILIES®, though, AIR OPTIX® offers patients a more diverse range of contact lenses. This brand has daily lenses, monthly lenses, and even colored lenses. AIR OPTIX® contact lenses are equipped with technology that allows for maximum breathability and long-lasting comfort.

  1. Biotrue® ONEday

Manufactured by Bausch + Lomb, the Biotrue® ONEday brand is a family of daily disposable contact lenses. These lenses offer UVA and UVB protection and maintain nearly 100% of the moisture in your eyes even after 16 hours of wear. Biotrue® ONEday contact lenses can be worn by patients who have myopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.

Remember, there is no such thing as a single best lens brand. Choosing the right pair of contacts depends on a variety of factors, from the shape of your eyes to your lifestyle to your specific vision problems. 

Consult your doctor and inform them of any problems that you’re experiencing with your eyes. They can help you in deciding which brand and contact lens type is the best option for you. It might take switching between a few brands and lenses to find the right pair. That being said, most people are able to keep wearing just one brand and type of contact lenses with no issue at all.
