Soflens 59 contact lenses were previously known as Soflens Comfort. Manufactured by Bausch & Lomb, the Soflens brand is renowned for its protein resistant material. This material enables Soflens 59 to give the wearer superior levels of comfort and visual acuity.
Soflens 59 are monthly contact lenses and come in convenient boxes of 6, each lens in a buffered saline solution.
Soflens 59 are made from a polymer known as Hilafilcon B - this polymer resists protein and prevents deposits building up on the surface of the lenses, ensuring that they stay clear and fresh and feel comfortable throughout the day.
As its name suggests, each Soflens 59 lens is made with 59% water content. This makes them great for people who have dry eyes as they keep the eyes feeling fresh even when worn for a whole day. The high water content also enables oxygen to reach the wearer's eye more readily. Making them excellent for people who tend to wear contact lenses whilst engaging in tasks that involve keeping their eyes open for a long time, such as working at a computer for several hours at a time.

|Base Curve (BC)|
|Oxygen permeability (Dk/t)|
It indicates the amount of oxygen which passes through the lens. The oxygen permeability is an key indicator of the lens material. It determines how much oxygen (which is necessary for proper performance) receives a cornea of our eyes. The higher the value, the better. Dk/t is common used and it states: the Dk per thickness of the lens. Usually for a lens at -3.00D, which makes it easier to compare different lenses brands. Ranges from 10-20 Dk/t to over 170 Dk/t.
