Your eyes are important. So, selecting the right brand of contacts that fit your eyes and make you feel happy and healthy is key. Below we’ll explore the differences between Hubble, a newcomer in the contact lens field and Biofinity, a conventional brand.
Biofinity offers a variety of contact options all underneath the CooperVision brand. Biofinity specializes in premium soft contact lenses that can be worn for a week straight before cleaning; whereas, Hubble offers a single contact option–a daily lens that is tailored to fit your eye and prescription.
Unlike other traditional contact companies, Hubble lenses are built in-house allowing them to offer a low-cost (relatively) daily contact lens that perfectly fits your prescription needs. Hubble’s contact lenses are made of a hydrogel material that is 55% water allowing their lenses to be durable, clear, and comfortable and due to their unique design, these contacts provide all-day comfort, clear vision, and UV protection.
Biofinity is a family of contacts under the well-established CooperVision brand. Unlike Hubble, Biofinity contacts do not provide UV protection but can be worn up to 7 days.
Biofinity lenses use Aquaform Technology that makes for particularly breathable contacts. Unlike Hubble, Biofinity offers a variety of styles for those with different eye conditions. For example, Biofinity offers lenses that specifically correct for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Biofinity contacts can be purchased through various online retailers, while Hubble contacts can only be purchased directly from Hubble.
Companies may have amazing claims about their contacts, but the power ultimately comes from the people. Below is what some customers have had to say about Hubble and Biofinity.

Customers have claimed to have clarity in sight and especially appreciate the quick delivery of their Hubble contacts.

Cons: Founded in 2016, Hubble still lacks wide acknowledgment in the contact industry. It’s expanding reputation and product speak for itself however since it has not been as established as its competitors the local optometrist probably won’t know too much about it.
Pros: Biofinity Contacts appeal to customers with specific vision conditions and allow customers to feel comfortable with the many choices it offers. Customers like how the lenses feel light and that they last up to seven days. Anyone with any type of vision impairment is sure to find the right lens for them within the Biofinity family tree.

This leads to blurred and cloudy vision. Customers also mention that the lenses easily rip and tear. Quality has also been an issue as Biofinity wearers vent about the irritation and dryness that come with Biofinity contacts.
