As their name suggests both Soflens 59 and Soflens 38 are a both from the same manufacturer - Bausch & Lomb. The main difference is their water content and material, Soflens 59 has 59% water content and is made from Hilafilcon B, whereas Soflens 38 has (you guessed it ) 38% water contend and made from Polymacon.
The other big difference between Soflens 59 and Soflens 38 is their wearing schedule, Soflens 59 is a daily wear monthly disposable contact lens, meaning you will need to remove it every night, clean and store the lens for wear the next day, whereas Soflens 38 has been approved for a limited amount of continuous wear, if recommended by your eye Doctor you can wear Soflens 38 up to 7 consecutive days. Making them a great choice for people who occasionally need to sleep in their contacts.

went through two pairs within two weeks of receiving them- two had tiny tears causing irritation and the other two were just unbearable to wear either going dry, feeling uncomfortable, going blurry and making my eyes so sensitive to light that i couldn`t drive which is what im experiencing with the current pair hence im on the site buying more lenses two months too early! ive worn this brand for years and its only this year that theyve been like this. they were out of stock a few months ago so i had to buy a different brand and they were brilliant (proclear). Editors Note: Please speak to our customer service team who can replace a faulty lens.
Absolute bargain contact lenses but I'll be trying a different lense from now on, as these have seemed scratchy on my eyes, and I often have to take them out during the day and wear my glasses instead. Plus the thickness of the lenses seemed to be inconsistent - one eye seemed thicker than the other despite them being the same prescription lense from the same box?! x
I`ve recently had a check up at the optitions and they told me that the contact lenses I have been wearing are damaging my eyes. They do not let enough oxygen into eyes. These are the contacts I have been wearing. I clean them like I should. I have worn them the right amount of time.
I can put a new pair in and they will be fine for about 3 hours and then they will start getting dry and making my eyes blurry and unable to focus and VERY itchy! I would not recommend these at all!
Ive used this brand for over ayear now and alwys gav it the benefit of the doubt but ive had enough now they are really bad, dry up too quikly and are very irratant.gave me constant eye infection. i really need to find another suitable brand. i would not recommend these at all.
Having dabbled with contact lenses over the years, I gave up as too much hassle taking them out at night, wearing glasses to watch TV in bed, misplacing lenses or glasses etc but these have transformed my life. Once a month I pop them in (they are a tiny bit uncomfortable for about 30 seconds) and then I forget about them until the next month. I have had no trouble sleeping with them, swimming, showering etc. It`s like having laser surgery for a fraction of the cost. I can`t praise them enough!
You can`t wear these for too long.They dry out and you have to keep using the drops.They also stick to your eye making them painful to take out. I have been wearing contact lenses for over 20 years. Though they are cheaper than some of the other lenses,they aren`t worth it anyways. Spend the extra money and get a good quality pair of lenses.
Softlens [compared to Proclear] are absolute great! I thought that for the price, they`d be terrible but quite surprisingly, they are much better than proclear. I`ve worn them for long periods of time and even accidently slept in them, and woken up to find my eyes quite alright and not dry [although thoroughly not recommended to sleep in them].
In my opinion, their best feature is that they do a good job keeping your eyes hydrated and not drying them. Undoubtedly, they`re are much better contact lenses out there, but for the price, Softlens is a winner.
Was given these by a contact lens optician ages ago and bought some further pairs from this website as they are better value and very conveniently delivered fast to your own home.
First monthlys and probably the only monthlys i`ll ever try! I love them. They`re really comfortable and i`ve never had a problem with them like I have with my dailies!
I have been wearing contact lenses for about 4 years now. These are the best I have had so far. I think the quality is excellent, and the comfort lasts longer than most contact lenses. I am about to buy another 6 month batch. I would definitely recommend these!
