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 lens to the eye helping them stay moist and comfortable all day long.
Higher oxygen supply lenses are known to create whiter healthier looking eyes for most contact lens wearers.
Biofinity contact lenses are designed to be worn all day for up to 6 days in a row (then one night off), 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.
Combining this perfect balance of water and exceptionally high levels of oxygen, Biofinity fells almost as natural as wearing no lenses at all. Biofinity is a naturally comfortable lens lens with no additives, coatings, wetting agents or surface treatments so nothing comes between you a more comfortable lens-wearing experience.
Biofinity also contains Aspheric optics which enhances vision even in low lighting conditions and helps with peripheral vision.

Like may continuous wear contact lenses Biofinity are designed for all day comfort, all day every day, so you can put them in at the beginning of the month and continue wearing them comfortably for 30 days and 29 nights, knowing that your eyes are getting a healthy amount of oxygen not just throughout the day but also whilst you sleep at night.
Continuous wear contact lenses have been designed to be slept in, so if you like to take long naps party all night or work irregular hours, then this is the lens type for you. They are ideal for those people who have poor vision but want or need to wake up seeing the world clearly without searching for their glasses or inserting contact lenses.
Biofinity are a silicone hydrogel continuous wear contact lens designed to be worn for up to 30 days. Although many people wear them daily or weekly they are safe and have been approved to be worn for up to 30 days and 29 nights consecutively, this is so that your eyes are given 1 night free of contact lenses before inserting a fresh pair for the following month.
Biofinity are one of the few contact lenses that you can safely sleep in.

These lenses are the WORST. I tried to sleep in them on the first night (this is why I bought them) and the burning pain woke me up in the early hours. I took the lenses out, cleaned them, ran an eye wash through my eyes and put the lenses back in. I went back to bed. I woke up in the morning and my eyes were so sore I could barely open them to remove the lenses. I went back to my daily disposables. Unfortunately I spent my lenses budget on these so once my dailies ran out I had to persevere with these. After between 3 and 6 hours, I want to scratch my eyeballs out of my head. My eyes are bloodshot and water loads and by the end of the night (when I take them out) it feels like I have rubbed chilli into my eyes by accident. It’s so bad it looks and feels like severe conjunctivitis, but the symptoms stop as soon as the lenses are removed. Never ever again. My new dailies arrived today, and these are going in the bin.
I have been using the biofinity monthly lenses for over a year now and have never had any issues. I usually put them in in the morning before heading out to work and then take them out some time in the evening when I am home, and wear them most days. There has never been a time when my eyes have felt dry with this in, even after they have been in almost the whole day. I was also told in my last opticians check up my eyes are healthy so these have not caused any problems and are fine for me to keep using. Would definitely recommend.
I have been using these for years and am very happy with them. They can be worn all day without irritating my eyes. I would recommend wearing glasses on a couple of days during the week to give your eyes a break, but I realise other people might wear them daily.
I accidentally ordered the Biofinity continuous wear lenses once when my usual dailies were out of stock, turned out to be one of the better mistakes I've ever made. These lenses are perfect for 24x7 wear, they let oxygen pass through so you wake up without feeling our eyes are as dry as sand, and it lets me forget about the fact I need glasses and get on with my day. Brilliant.
In terms of actual use, I'd say I take them out for a few days once every 10 days to let my eyes rest, not because I feel I need to but rather I'm conscious of wearing them too long.
Tried these guys a couple of years ago in an attempt to find an easier and cheaper solution than the company i was using. Soon found the product was great quality, promptly delivered, good value and overall felt much more comfortable to wear than the company i had previously. I have been faithfully using them ever since.
I've been wearing contact lenses for around 18 years and prefer them to my glasses. These lenses ensure that enough oxygen gets to my eyes when I wear them for a long time, they're comfortable and my optician has noticed that my eyes are healthier since I moved to use them. Great price and delivery.
