Unfortunately Soflens 59 is a daily wear monthly disposable contact lens and is not recommended for overnight wear. If you are looking for a contact lens you can wear overnight then you should check out continuous wear lenses.
Always check with your Optometrist before wearing continuous wear contact lenses as you may need additional check ups to monitor your eye health.
As their name suggests both Soflens 59 and Soflens 38 are 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 Optometrist you can wear Soflens 38 up to 7 consecutive days. Making them a great choice for people who occasionally need to sleep in their lenses.

I've been a fan of these lenses for many years - I love the flexibility of their products; daily, monthly lenses, etc. I'm not a regular wearer of lenses so daily and monthly lenses work brilliantly for me. Never had any problems with this brand; comfortable, easy to use, and a great price. I'd highly recommend!
I had placed order for Crystal Monthly and Soflens 59. I had no trouble with Crystal Monthly but when I used Soflens 59 I realised that the whole 6 month supply of lens was bad quality. It gave me terrible headaches everytime I wore it. Firstly all of the Soflens that I tried gave me blurry vision and I had to strain the whole time and kept on constantly rubbing my eyes to get correct vision and after all this in 4hrs time my eyes were red and burning. Will never buy this product.
I have tried many different contact lenses and all of them was really poor quality. For example: Acuvue is comfortable to wear for 4 hours - then they go so dry that you have take them out or use some drops, they also split after 2 weeks of use due to being so thin. The new Biofinity is also so thin that it dries after few hours.
Bausch & Lomb Contact Lenses are thicker than others but if you use them constantly you will get use to them and you will find out that they are much more comfortable than any "advanced" thin lenses.
Soflens 59 does not dry out even after 10 hours of constant wearing but you have to use quality cleaner like Opti Free which is expensive but it keeps the lenses wet so they do not harm your eye after 4 hours.
I also tried Rossman brand contact lenses as well and I found out that they were the worst due becoming uncomfortable just after 2 hours.
I really love those Soflens 59 and I will stick to them probably for ever or until they change quality for worse.
I purchased these lenses almost a year ago and i still have 4 pairs untouched. They are so irritating for the eye and dry out almost instantly. They are scratchy and just plain uncomfortable in my experience. I don't know what to do with the unused lenses. I have just purchased some from a different brand and hopefully they will be better.
The ONLY good things about these lenses are that they are cheap (but you get less than what you pay for) and the blue tint on the lens does help when trying to locate them in the solution.
I have tried a few contact lenses over the years and these are dreadful! First of all trying to get them out of the lense case is practically impossible and I couldn't wear them all day as my eyes were dry and irritable! Will not be ordering these again!
I have been wearing contact lenses for many years. These are quite the worst I have ever had. Very poor quality, a waste of money. I thought I would give them a try as they cost a little less than Acuvue and when originally wearing lenses, I had Bausch & Lomb dailies.. I have returned to Acuvue, well worth slightly extra cost.
I bought these lenses as I needed to find something a bit cheaper. They feel comfortable at first but I find after a few hours they tend to start to feel quite dry. I also find them quite flimsy to handle especially when trying to take them out. Overall, they are worth it for the reasonable price but in future I would rather pay a bit more for a more quality lense.
These contact lenses triggered serious problems with conjunctivitus which took me 2-3months to fully clear up. They cause excessive dryness and irritation and my optician at Specsavers said they're an old brand which were outdated in the marketplace. I would seriously recommend going for a different brand. I chose these because they're cheap but never again. You get what you pay for
The lenses are not too bad. I am still searching for a lens that doesnt cause my dryness or irritation no matter what season. So far I tried around 5 different ones and Softlens 59 worked quite well for me even compared to much more expensive lenses... until the winter came. Now my eyes get irritated after half a day *sigh*. Therefore, I would say try them out for yourself, they will definitely work better in seasons where one doesn't spend a lot of time in heated rooms with dry air. They are as good as more expensive lenses.
