BAUSCH & LOMB SofLens 38 are high-quality monthly disposable soft contacts. SofLens 38 lenses are ultra-thin, easy to handle and insert. These contacts are comfortable to wear thanks to the time-tested lens material. They provide crisp, clear vision and address much different vision correcting prescriptions.
The “Soflens” material, called polymacon or HEMA, was used in the first soft contact lenses. It is a hydrogel that was invented by the Czech chemist Otto Wichterle. Besides being a soft lens material, it was also permeable to oxygen. It was introduced to the US by Bausch & Lomb in 1971.
