Biofinity Toric is a silicone hydrogel contact lens made from the CooperVision's breakthrough Aquaform technology that allows greater levels of oxygen to freely flow through the contact lenses to the eye. Higher oxygen supply contact lenses are known to create whiter and healthier looking eyes for most contact lens wearers.
Biofinity Toric also possesses and maintains a high level of water to ensure the contact lenses remains soft and flexible, delivering real comfort through the day and night. To help deliver optimum vision correction for astigmatism, Biofinity Toric have an advanced patented toric lens design.
Combining a perfect balance of water and exceptionally high levels of oxygen permeability, together with a new toric lens design, Biofinity feels almost as natural as wearing no contact lenses at all, meaning your vision remains very stable.
Without additives, coatings, wetting agents or surface treatments, Biofinity Toric offers real comfort and natural breathability, giving you improved contact lens performance at any time of day, or night. Freedom to comfortably wear contact lenses your way.†
† Biofinity contact lenses are recommended for monthly replacement and approved for occasional overnight or up to 6 nights continuous wear under the guidance of your Optomotrist.
Biofinity are a silicone hydrogel continuous wear contact lens designed to be worn daily for up to 30 days. Although many people wear them as continuous wear contact lenses for up to 6 consecutive nights, taking one night off before repeating up to 4 weeks, this is so that your eyes are given 1 night free of contact lenses every few days, helping your eyes stay hydrated and healthy.
Biofinity are one of the few contact lenses that you can safely sleep in.It is not recommended that you sleep in contact lenses unless the contact lenses are designed for that purpose and prescribed get your Optometrist for overnight wear.
A Toric contact lens is designed to correct astigmatism and your vision, so they are a little more complex requiring two prescription, one to correct your power and the other to correct the shape of the eye.
In non-astigmatic eyes, the corneas will be both smooth and spherical, thus allowing light to enter the eyes evenly. Astigmatic eyes, however, often have unevenly shaped corneas that warp how light penetrates the retina. It is commonly referred to as a 'rugby ball' shaped eye - however, it is very subtle, you cannot see it by looking at your eye!
You will notice Toric contact lenses have additional information relating to the fit of the lens, the Axes and Cylinder powers helps correct your astigmatism by allowing the focusing of powers on both the horizontal and vertical lines.A Toric contact lens needs to remain stable in your eye and not rotate when you are active or blink, so the manufacturers use different techniques to stabilise Toric contact lenses
CooperVision use their Optimized Toric Lens Geometry™ to stabalize Biofinity Toric contact lenses providing both clarity and comfort. Coopervisions Optimised Toric Lens Geometry also provides clearer vision by reducing lens movement when you blink.

In terms of comfort and quality these babies are top notch. They can also be worn night and day which makes a huge difference for people like me who dislike daily hassle with lenses. I often forget these on me for weeks before taking out for clean. I only wish there would be option for colored ones! But for non-colored lenses these are 10 stars.
I had prevously tried a more expensive continuous use toric lens which I found did not provide me with sharp and clear vision. The Bioinfinity Lens are excellent. Been wearing them for over a week now and have found them to be the most confortable lens I have ever used (in over 20 years of wearing contacts). Vision and comfort remain constant throughout the day. Would highly recommend.
Having used the PureVision Toric which lasted about 3 days before being irratable dry and painful and needing to be removed, I can honestly say that Biofinity Toric are the best continuous wear astigmatism toric lenses ever. Very comfortable and I have to set reminders to replace them after a month of not taking them out at all, because I`d forget and just keep wearing them (which has been done with no problems).
I can`t recommend them more highly.
Having worn rigid gas permeable lenses for many years I changed to soft lenses to gain more comfort. Was warned that my vision would never be as good with soft lenses as I have astigmatism I gave various types a try, liked the comfort of Acuvue etc but couldnt see! Settled for basic toric lens which gave better vision but not great comfort. Then a revelation tried a new optician who suggested Biofinity toric and have been delighted at the excellent vision and great comfort, can even have a nap in these which is great. So its pays to keep trying, lenses vary so much
