Patented Aquaform Comfort Science
Biofinity is different from other high oxygen lenses because it features our exclusive Aquaform Comfort Science. It help to create an optimized balance of high oxygen permeability, good water content and optimum modulus to provide increased breathability and moisture in a soft, flexible lens. Besides, this technology creates a naturally hydrophilic contact lens that retains water within the lens, minimizing dehydration. It also combines low modulus and high oxygen transmissibility for added comfort and breathability.
Aquaform also creates hydrogen bonds between the lens material and water, which is a fancy way of saying the lens pulls moisture into it, locking it inside. This results in better hydration which means improved comfort and fewer deposits on the lens surface. In short, the Aquaform design found in the Biofinity family allows more oxygen to reach the front of the eye and maintains more moisture inside of the lens, creating a healthier and naturally wettable surface that is comfortable enough to wear all day and last all month with fewer deposits.
