They’re pretty much standard filter sizes, and fit standard filter threads (my set of Hoya lenses are about 20 years old) so you can use them on any lens with the same filter diameter (unless you use step rings, but that’s a different topic)
For 55 mm you’d by this set:
You can also buy filter adaptors to adapt them to other thread sizes. They are called step up or step down adaptors. When you buy one, you buy it from the lens perspective and not the filters.
IE, if you had a lens with a 52mm thread size and a 55mm filter (or close up adapter) you would need a 52 to 55 mm step up adapter.
Stepping up is usually not a problem. Stepping down can be especially with wide angle lenses.
