Bausch Ultra for Astigmatism versus Biofinity ToricBausch + Lomb Ultra for Astigmatism and Biofinity Toric are monthly replaceable soft contact lenses with an aspherical lens design. The water and material contents are very similar and while Biofinity Toric is a silicone hydrogel lens, Bausch + Lomb Ultra for Astigmatism is classified by the FDA as a class 1 contact lens. This class specifies lenses with a water content less than 50% and a non-ionic base material. It's also worth mentioning that the oxygen transmission capabilities of these two torics are quite similar and the price range doesn't suggest a winner either (with a tiny price advantage for Biofinity).
