    Hi all,

    I am currently using B&L SofLens 38. I have diameter 14.0 and BC 8.4. I
    want to use J&J Acuvue Advance as recommended by a couple of friends
    and also because it has much higher oxygen permeability and
    transmissibility.

    TECHNICALLY, will there be an obvious problem getting Acuvue with the
    same power, same diameter and BC of 8.3 instead of 8.4? (Acuvue does
    not have BC of 8.4) I do not need a prescription since I won't be
    buying it in the US.

    Thank you,
    Boris

    8.3 vs 8.4 is virtually the same. Much more important is other
    properties of the lens such as thickness, stiffness, edge design,
    surface properties, etc.

    Ideally you would have the fit checked by someone qualified, but
    generally speaking the Acuvue Advance is a better lens than the Soflens
    38 due to the O2 benefit.

    Thanks, for the advice.
    I finally got my hands on Acuvue Advance, they are really soft and
    comfortable.
