Biofinity are a silicone hydrogel continuous wear contact lens, manufactured by CooperVision and made using their patented Aquaform technology, which creates a hydrophilic silicone hydrogel lens that allows greater levels of oxygen to flow freely through the contacts to the eye helping them stay moist and comfortable al day long.
Higher oxygen supply contacts are known to create whiter healthier looking eyes for most contact lens wearers.
Biofinity contact lenses are designed to be as daily disposable monthly contacts or up to 7 days and 6 nights in a row, they posses and maintain a high level of water to ensure the lens remains soft and flexible, delivering real comfort through the day and night.

Biofinity are naturally comfortable contacts with no additives, coatings, wetting agents or surface treatments, so nothing comes between you a more comfortable contacts-wearing experience.

I hadn`t worn continuous lenses until about two months ago and now I won`t change. They`re so comfortable that it`s really easy to sleep in them. I`d recommend taking then out a couple of times a month to give your eyes a break for the night - but other than that they`re great!
I had tried every contact lense on the market then my optician recommended I try continous wear lenses due to me always scratching my eyes out everytime I either inserted them or removed them, I couldnt tolerate the standard lenses they tried me with, although my vision was wonderful and the feeling of waking up in the morning with clear sight was the best thing, my eyes became sore and gritty. I was then told about another type of continous lense which was made of different materials and I adore them. They are perfect for me, its very rare I need to remove them before 30 days although I occasionally take them overnight at the advice of my optician. I seriously considered laser eye treatment as I was having so many problems with other lenses but now im quite happy to continue using these for as long as possible. The only thing I would recommend is that you still go for checks at the opticians as and when required.
I switched from wearing acuvue daily disposables to wearing these just to try them out. I don`t see how anyone could wear them all day and sleep in them. They were no better than my dailies ones, they began to feel dry and irritable after about 6 to 7 hours just like all other contact lenses I tried. At least with daily contacts you get the `fresh, new contact lenses` feeling everytime you put a new pair in. I would go with a moist dailies contact lens over this.
I have been wearing these lenses for about 18 months and I`ve never looked back! They are amazing and you just forget all about them. They never dry out, I never have sore eyes and because you sleep in them they are just completely brilliant. But the best thing about contactlenses.co.uk is the price. I have been paying £60 for three pairs from my opticians until I found this sight and now I`m paying £34 - absolute bargain. Highly recommended lenses and web site. Delivered within about 7 working days.
I`ve been wearing lenses for about 8 years now and I first tried continuous wear over 2 years ago. I have tried most brands but there is absolutely no doubt that Biofinity are much, much better than any other continuous wear lens on the market at the moment. If you have sensitive eyes do not look elsewhere. My eyes tend to dry out a lot - I work with a computer for most of the day and smoke cigarettes which does not help and Biofinity are the only lenses that can deal with my lifestyle. No dryness, itching or soreness for a whole month. You can easily forget you got them in at all. THANK GOD FOR THESE LENSES!
These lenses are a god-send. I`ve been wearing daily disposables for about 5 years, but could never tolerate them for more than about 6 hours as my eyes would start to feel dry and tired. I was excited when I heard the continual wear lenses were made with more water content as I hoped this would solve my problems. I tried 2 other makes before this one, one lasting 6 hours before the scratchy feeling became unbearable, and the other only giving 2 weeks of comfort. I`d almost resigned myself to a life without comfortable contacts, until I was recommended these. I`ve been wearing them for 2 months now and they`re extremely comfortable all the way up to the 30-day deadline. Most days I even forget I`m wearing them! Can`t recommend them enough.
