Fantastic contact lenses

I've been with Soflens 38 for a long time and can't find any other contact that can produce the same results. The only downside is that the lens is a little thicker and may need some getting used to but overall a great contact lens!

Great price

Ordering Softlens 38 is very easy and above all, cheaper online! My eye doctor would charge 15% more than the price online. I'm very pleased with Lens Direct's prices. These lenses are now even more affordable because of their monthly and annual coupons. Really worthwhile!

Switched brand names

I don't know if the lens changed once they changed the name but they don't feel as comfortable as they use to. I really want the same quality as the Optima FW had.

Softlens 38 vs. Silicone hydrogels

I tried other lenses that were silicone hydrogels and found that my eyes would reject the eye entirely. My eyes would water constantly. I tried Soflens 38 last year and wow, the only lens that really worked with my eye. I finally feel like I'm able to wear contact lenses. It's a great feeling!

My eyes are very dry with these lenses. They irritate my eye after 6 hours of use. And definitely not a good lens for allergies!

Trustworthy product and service

I'm happy I buy my Soflens 38 from, the customer service is very helpful and nice! They let me know when my delivery will come and informed me when they were coupons available for my order! Unlike some companies that just have it on the website, Lens direct sent it to my email and let me know when it is available for use and it's expiration date. This is one very pleased customer!

More time rewetting

I found that these lenses dry my eye so easily. I spend more time rewetting my lenses than wearing them.I'm not really happy with these lenses.

Long lasting

I've been using Soflens 38 for over 8 months and I have no complaints. This lens will give you a perfect fit and never tear. The clarity is superb and beats any other lens! This is my first contact lens I've used and I wouldn't recommend any other!

Reliable lenses

I remember when these lenses were only called Optima FW and now they are being changed to Soflens 38. Either way, the quality and comfort of these lenses don't change. It allows my eyes to breathe and don't cause an itch sensation. These contact lenses are great and they can't even be felt in your eye.
