Unfortunately not. Although Bausch + Lomb’s Ultra Contact Lenses with MoistureSeal Technology is a silicone hydrogel contact lens they have been designed for daily wear for up to 30 consecutive days and not for overnight wear.
MoistureSeal Technology is Bausch + Lombs propriety technology that has been designed to enable Ultra contact lenses to retain high levels of moisture, creating a contact lens surface that is highly wettable. MoistureSeal Technology is created using a two-phase manufacturing process and enables Ultra contact lenses to provide outstanding comfort for a full 16 hours a day, every day, throughout the month.

For me, these lenses, that are a replacement for the PureVision2 range, do not come close to PureVision2 standards and capability.
These lenses have had consistent issues. The main one being that the edges are weaker and end up having a little notch come out of them which then causes discomfort and potential scratching of the eye. This has happened within 3 weeks of a lense that is meant to last a month.
I've also found that they dry out quicker and a full days wear is not entirely possible.
Never had any of these issues with PureVision2.
Bausch & Lomb... bring back PureVision2!
