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 al 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 and up to 29 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.
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.
Continuous wear contact lenses are designed to be worn up to 30 days and although safe and healthy for your eyes they can increase the risk of infection, corneal neovascularisation (growth of new blood vessels into the cornea to increase oxygen supply), inflammation and irritation.

I used to wear daily lenses but was always worried about falling asleep in them....So went to opticians and they showed me continuous wear ones, I was a convert mediately able to wear all day and sleep in them but unfortunately moved and could not get them any more....
I had to go onto monthly disposables which were ok but hated to drama of removing and cleaning every night....
Then found this site that delivered and had these....
I found the site easy and quick delivery...
For the first few days I only wore them in the day as to get used to them and found them very comfortable, but when I started sleeping in them I would wake us with red sore sticky eyes and even blurred vision...
so stopped sleeping in them...
Not really the point of continuous wear contacts...
I also found that they didn't past the time stated and after 3 weeks my eyes got so irritated they caused little blisters on my lids...
I also was not wearing any make up so there was nothing else to cause it....
As soon as I replaced them all was ok again for another few weeks....
I will definitely order form here again but will try a different type and would not recommend these ones spend a little more and hopefully they will be better quality.
I've used them for a few months now and they are very comfortable to wear. Only thing I noticed is that after 3 weeks of constant wearing day and night they loose their comfort in a way and I have to take them off to allow my eyes to rest but I don't mind. I still recommend them as they are better than what I tried in past and even better than the daily ones I used to buy from my optician.
I've been wearing contact lenses for 15 years, firstly starting with yearly lenses (I'm not sure you can even get them anymore?!) I eventually ended up wearing AirOptix lenses which to be fair were very comfortable, but I was looking for a change 3 years ago and landed upon this review section, people were raving about how good these lenses were so thought id give them a go... they are amazing! you literally feel like you are without contacts they are so comfortable. They don't seem to build up protein, you can blink without them falling out, and are really a strong durable lense, and they are really affordable! Really can't fault them :)
Used these for over a year now and they are the best lenses ive ever had....never have any complaints with my eyes and never once gone dry... i often forget i have them in....my only complaint is that they seal so well onto the eye that at the end of 30 days they can be a pain to get off: Editors Comment, try moistening your eye with a few drops of rewetting solution to help loosen the lenses. I would suggest you try the Blink Contacts, as you will probably on use them once a month they come in a pk of 20 vials so they won`t go off between uses. http://www.contactlenses.co.uk/store/prdetails?entryid=32&priceid=37
TRIED MONTHLY DISPOSABLES BUT FOUND THEY MOVE AROUND THE EYE ALSO I WOULD DAMAGE THEM WHEN REMOVING THEM. TRIED THESE CONTINUOUS WEAR LENSES, I PUT THEM IN AND JUST LEAVE THEM IN FOR THE MONTH THE ONLY THING I DO IS USE EYE DROPS TWICE A DAY. THEY ARE FANTASTIC AND THEY DONT MOVE AROUND THE EYE.
i been wearing contacts for years and these are amazing!
i wear them like normal monthlys and take them out each night in solution and i can never tell im wearing them
fall asleep in them occasionally and never feel any irritation when i continue wearing them for the rest of the next day.
I tried these lenses on a whim looking at some of the reviews they seemed really good. I have no idea how these people managed to keep the lenses in for a month? after a couple of hours my eyes were sore, dry and bloodshot. I used to use daily disposables and I much prefer to just to be blind when I wake up until I find my glasses/lenses than wake up feeling like I've had torture preformed on my eyes while I've been asleep.
Can't fault these one bit! 80% of the time I've forgotten I've got these in, and have kept them in way over the 1 month as stated, due to forgetting I had them! Recommend these to anyone who has a habbit of falling asleep with contacts in, rushing in the morning for work/school, and for pure easiness without cleaning constantly.
I have been wearing these lenses for a little over 2 years now and have waited this long to write a review on them as I have tried many, many lenses before and wanted to see how they perform.
2 years on and they are still amazing! I have tried other expensive brands such as 1 Day Acuvue Trueye, AirOpxtix Aqua as well as many of the dailies, but have to say, with relief, that Biofinity are the best. My eyes feel very comfortable throughout the day. None of the irritating dryness and itchy sensation. And it's not just the comfort, but they do emphasise the whiteness of the eyes and the colours of the iris. Makes them gorgeous.
The thing to remember is that different contact lenses wearers will react differently to the same kind of lenses. It's a matter of discovering and investigating what sort of lenses best suit your eyes. At the end of the day (sort of this oft quoted annoyance!), for me, comfort is of utmost important and Biofinity has delivered and more.
I was genuinely excited reading all the glowing reviews about these lenses but have found that they definitely don't suit me. They made my eyes itchy in the evenings and I always awoke with very blurred vision for about 5 minutes. To at least get some use from them I now take them out and store in solution every night, defeating the object. I'll be back to dailies!
These were very comfortable for day wear for a couple of weeks although at no point was I ever able to sleep with them in. They felt comfortable for longer but still had to be removed as eyes became uncomfortable. After a couple of weeks of taking out and putting back in they just became irritating and uncomfortable. All that said, they were far easier to wear initially than dailies.
I just spoke to my optician and she had looked up on Biofinity's documentation.
They, like some other manufacturers, now recommend taking the lenses out every 6 nights and placing them in vials of cleaning solution (not just saline) and putting them back in the next morning. A cleaning solution helps keep the lenses cleaner and fresher and helps give the eyes a night off.
This seems a good idea and I plan to make it easier to remember and take the lenses out every Sunday night and place them into a cleaning solution for the night.
I had worn glasses to correct my terrible short-sightedness and astigmatism for 15 years before I tried contacts.
At first I chose daily disposables. The optician explained that my astigmatism wasn't too pronounced so I could use normal lenses instead of paying extra for toric. However, I could only wear contacts for around 6 hours before my eyes became horrendously dry and painful.
Before I gave up completely, I decided to give these a go after reading the positive reviews here. They have absolutely changed my life. I use the standard lenses rather than the toric and I don't even realise they are in. I pop them in at the start of the month and completely forget about them. I have never had any discomfort at all, not even towards the end of the month.
They have given me so much freedom. I can see from the second I wake up in the morning. I can actually wear sunglasses. I'm going to Florida next year and I look forward to being able to see what I am doing when swimming and on rollercoasters.
Absolutely the best thing I have ever bought. I can't see myself ever going back to glasses or dailies.
I have been wearing contact lenses for over 12 years mostly daily disposables i changed to continuous wear about 2 years ago (which i got from a well known opticians) i was told about this website and on price i will save £15.00 per 3 month period. The lenses are so comfortable i wish i had changed earlier, i often forget iv'e got them in also they arrived within 3 days of ordering, brilliant, will continue to order my lenses from this company in future.
I tried these as my focus dailies that I have been using for years suddenly started drying out much sooner and becoming uncomfortable, I thought iw ould try some that you could wear all teh time and maybe my mistake was not visiting an optician. but i tried these following teh reviews, but they were worse than the focus dailies, and no way I could wear for more than a day, so I had to take them out and buy cleaning fluid, which was a major step backwards for me.
I decided to try these contact lenses after a two year break from contact lenses. I was nervous that they would be uncomfortable but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the opposite is true. I will definitely be buying these again.
Having given continuous lenses a go about 2 years ago (and they were rubbish) I read a number of reviews of different products and decided to give the Biofinity a go and I must say that the reviews saying they were fantasic were right on the money however it does appear that they don't suit everyone. But waking up and being able to see and seeing in the shower (after too many years) as I am -8(ish) is brilliant.
Give them a go; I don't think that you will be sorry.
