Biofinity vs Biofinity Energys
Updated: Feb 14, 2020
A comparison of Biofinity and Biofinity Energys. What are the differences and which one is better? Detailed up-to-date specifications shown side by side comparing material, technical parameters, special features, and daily cost.
Biofinity and Biofinity Energys are monthly replaceable contact lenses, developed and manufactured by CooperVision. So, is Biofinity Energys a minor upgrade from the Biofinity lenses? Let's have a look at the two spec sheets. Coopervision introduced the Biofinity contact lens family in 2007 and launched Biofinity Energys in 2017. The basic prescription parameters such as diameter, sphere power range, and base curve are the same.
According to CooperVision's product reference guide (from Oct 2019), the two lenses got approval for daily or extended wear up to six nights or seven days (based on your eye doctor's recommendation). In looking at the technical parameters such as base curve, diameter, water content, and material, you will notice that they are all identical. Biofinity and Biofinity Energys feature CooperVision's Aquaform technology.
However, the main difference is the lens design. Digital Zone Optics, a lens design that addresses the increased use of digital devices in patient's lives, is only available with the Biofinity Energys lenses.
It's difficult to tell how much difference this makes in terms of vision acuity and comfort and we would love to get your feedback in case you already have switched to Biofinity Energys. Otherwise, we recommend discussing with your eye care practitioner whether you could switch to Biofinity Energys. Get some free trial lenses, so you can find out if you experience any differences.
