By using the lens-type transformation, exact soliton and quasi-soliton similaritons are found in (1+1), (2+1) and (3+1)-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equations in the context of nonlinear optical fiber amplifiers and graded-index waveguide amplifiers. The novel analytical and numerical results show that, in addition to the exact solitonic optical waves, quasi-solitonic optical waves with Gaussian, parabolic, vortex and ring soliton profiles can evolve exact self-similarly without any radiation.
