    Default How to Tell if Your 1-Day Acuvue Moist Contact Is Inside Out

    I've heard about this "bowl" thing that helps you tell if your contacts are sitting on your finger inside out. What it you've got something thin and flimsy like 1-Day Acuvue Moist contacts and it's hard to tell if it's the right shape or not? Sometimes those contacts can look pretty tiny, and some folks need help (Like from contacts!) seeing something so small close up. If someone is having trouble trying to peer at their 1-Day Acuvue Moist contacts are shaped like a bowl or not, is there another way?

    Some brands including 1-day acuvue Moist have an indicator on the side near the edge of the lens. In 1-day acuvue moist the indicator is the numbers 123 and if you see them just like that while looking up at the lens sitting on the tip of your finger it is correct and you can insert it. If it is backwards then you need to flip the lens. There is also a magnification device available called the Vue-2 which you can see it easier and it also works as an insertion aid. That said, it didn't work that great for me so I just insert the lens assuming it is right side out when I open a brand new one every day. If it were not correct I would immediately get a very uncomfortable feeling like there is something in your eye and it often pops out very easily if its inside out on your eye. So in this case I just invert it and try again! (Rinsing it with some multipurpose solution or saline solution before trying again)

    Have you got a picture of this "indicator," petlover1?

    I did my best to find a picture like that, but there just didn't seem to be any. You would think that such a unique feature would be highlighted on 1-Day Acuvue websites all over the `net, but I guess Acuvue sees it differently.

    I can't post up images as I've not made enough posts but I have one that I'll post up once I have. To be honest, I find I can barely see it when the contact is moist, it (to me) only becomes visible as it starts to dry and even then I need to hold it against a dark background. Instead I took a used one and kept inverting it until I could understand what I'd been told about bowl shaped and flared edges.

    So now are you familiar with the shape of your contacts when they're inside out?

    Yeah, I didn't like messing about with them before I put them in my eye so I took a used one and some solution to keep it moist and slowly I started to notice the very subtle difference in shape between the correct way and inside out.

    That's a good idea, KatKatKat. Use an old lens to flip inside-out over and over again until you recognize what an inside-out lens looks like.

    I'm looking forward to seeing that picture. It would make this whole thing easier. Your idea about practicing with an old lens is a good one.

    Before anyone mentions the fluff on it, it was a used lens. I thought I couldn't see it unless I held it against something dark but now I've found if you hold it up to a bright light it's visible.

    When inside out, the numbers read backwards

    Wow, when you take pictures yourself, you take them yourself. Maybe next time you can get someone to hold the lens for you.

    That's a really good picture. It shows the "123" indicator (and the fluff) very well. Maybe you can get a job as Lens 101's Official Photographer. Say cheese!

    Wow, I bet you didn't take that picture with one of those little 110 cameras like I used to use.

    Look at the picture and feel the nostalgia.

    Do you feel it?

    I noticed the same "123" marking on the Acuvue Oasys I'm trying, alongside the Moist.

    Perhaps it's on all Acuvue lenses? Very good to know, as the bowl shape is pretty "bowl-y" both ways, to me.

    I did a search on Lens 101 and it seems that 1-Day Acuvue, 1-Day Acuvue Moist, Acuvue Advance, and Acuvue Bifocal all have the "123" inversion mark on them, while Acuvue, Acuvue 2 and Acuvue Oasys have the letters "AV."

    Hopefully I got that right . . .

    Very nice. As long as there's some mark on them, it's helpful, eh?

    As a side note, for me, because my prescription is so mild, it's not immediately apparent if I have one in the wrong way. It took me about 15 minutes to figure out that one was not right, and only after covering both eyes, several times, with my glasses on and off, could I see that my left eye was definitely not right.

    So it's very nice to have indicator marks.

    Yeah. That sure beats closing one eye and playing with your glasses for 15 minutes.

    Now that you've had the experience of having your contacts in wrong that you can get them in correctly a bit faster now?

    Mmmm... Well yes and no. I now know better how to tell if I've got it upside down/inside out/backwards, or what-have-you.

    But insertion/removal is still a chore. I've got a couple things working against me - relatively small eye openings, big fingers, major blink reflex.

    I'm now using the Night and Day Aqua, which is 7-days and 6-nights in the eye, so I'll be inserting and removing them once a week, which I find most agreeable.

    I am sure I'll get better in time. But I'll have more time and less aggravation by only doing it once a week.

    I suppose I took the easy way out with the Night and Days, but I have enough challenges in the rest of my life that I don't mind doing it this once.

    As a side note, and I didn't learn this until after the fact, the N&D are much less expensive than dailies.

    Hey, thanks for telling us all that. That's some valuable real-world experience. It's the sort of thing that makes Lens 101 more helpful than your regular contact lens sites that just give you the information without the personal touch.

    Sure! And FWIW, my N&D - on my new pairs that I bought after getting the freebies fitted by my eye doc, I noticed they do have a mark on them. CIBAxxxx (numbers, I think) and an "OK".

    Whether I just missed them on the first pair because they were very hard to see, or they were added recently, I do not know.

    Good rule of them would be to just look very closely for helpful marks!!

    Yeah, imagine having to hold that teeny contact lens out at arm's length to see the inversion mark.

    I'm curious about something. To those of you who do the "extended wear" thing: I'm wondering does anyone take their contacts out during these extended periods, simply for cleaning?

    At first I thought that would defeat the purpose of extended wear, but now, after reading this Forum a little more, seems to me that cleaning & rinsing the lens before a week is out, despite the desire to be free of the fuss of it, might be a good idea.

    Or are the extended wear contacts manufactured with materials that do not allow the lipids and proteins (about which I've been reading) to adhere to the contact lens?

    Default I likes trendy shoes

    hello ,every one ,i am new here .in the next days ,i hope we can share more thing about our life or experience in our life .

    If you've been reading these posts for a while, you've probably come across the phrase "your results may vary." I think it applies here, too, although this particular section is for 1 Day Acuvue Moist. I'm not sure how we got on the subject of extended wear contact lenses, but here we are.

    Back when I tried the Night and Days they were meant for 1 month of continuous wear--I stopped using them because they felt like they were suffocating my eye and they were hell to remove---they're making a weekly version now?

    I use the N&D and only take out once a week, as instructed. Had some of those same thoughts as you expressed, though. I did not ask the eye doc about materials, but I am certain they are far different from daily disposables. Quite possibly there is a difference from bi-weekly or monthly lenses as well, besides breathability.

    That is my understanding, Sylvia. Wear 7 days/6 nights. Lenses last one month, though.

    I find them very breathable, though. Obviously things change, and vary from one user to the next.

    They get a little dry overnight - which is corrected with rewetting drops in the AM and right before bed in the PM.

    Thanks for telling us about your contact lenses routine. What kind of wetting drops do you like to use? Do you have a favorite brand?

    The eye doc gave me Blink Tears, and I bought a multi-pack of Refresh Tears at Costco that seem to be doing the trick.

    Have you noticed a difference between the Refresh Tears and the Blink drops?

    they both are fantastic for moisture during contact lens wear howerver they do have versions for severe dry eyes. The severe dry eye refresh or blink products are too thick for contact lens wear.....

    Blink contacts and Refresh tears is fine for all contact lenses.

    Do you prefer the Refresh Tears drops to the ones your doctor gave you?

    They should put that on the label. "Refresh Tears--With the No-Guckyness Formula."

    I think they should just have that quote on the label from luvbostonxo2's: "I like refresh tears personally cuz it doesn't cause guckyness."

    Better yet, put it in title case: "I Like Refresh Tears Personally Cuz It Doesn't Cause Guckyness."

    I wouldn't say so. I think I might slightly like the ones the doc gave better, except the fact I have to milk them out of a little bottle that probably contains 12 total drops. Overall, they might feel better in my eyes, but it's close enough to not matter much.

    So it's "six of one, half a dozen of the other" for you then? You could wear either of those brands?

    Speaking of the eye drops, yes. They both work fine for me.

    I guess it's a good thing to have options then, no?

    I suppose so. My main objective was being able to buy a multipack at Costco for a reasonable price.

    These eyedrops seem a little pricey for what they are, to me - which is purified water and about 10 cents worth of chemicals. Run through a teeny micron filter to sterilize.

    You'd think they're dragon tears, for the price per oz.

    Wow, how do you know so much about how eye drops are made?

    I'd probably have to say the label on the bottle, the internet, and a possibly unhealthy interest in trivial information.

    Those are some good sources of information. Would you say that Lens 101 has been helpful to you?

    Hopefully I got that right . . .
    No, I really think one thing you posted might be wrong.

    Either I'm losing my sight badly or you are wrong about the Acuvue Bifocals (for Presbyopia) I could not see AV or 123. there is something there but it's hard to make out what, or if I'm imagining it.

    However I did find out I have cataracts on both eyes since I last posted here, but that would not change the fact that I can clearly see the inversion mark on the Oasys, but not on the Acuvue for Presbyopia.

    That's what I'm looking for : the inversion mark for Acuvue for Presbyopia... Anyone know, I would so very much appreciate knowing.. I had a minor catastrophe and need to know exactly what the inversion mark looks like to see if I can do some damage control

    I wanted to check on those lenses on line to see if they are listed as having the "123" inversion mark, but I didn't see anything called "Acuvue Bifocals (for Presbyopia)." Only Acuvue Bifocal and Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia. A little more digging and I found that Acuvue Bifocals have that "123" inversion mark, but the Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia lenses do not have it.

    It took me a while to figure out which way was the right way, because I was stupidly looking down inside the lens for the 123, instead of holding it up and looking at it that way, and ended up putting them in the wrong way round. It's not as bad as you'd think, I wore them for a whole day like that once lol.

    All About Vision have some really good info on this, particularly good pictures of lenses the right and wrong way round. I don't think I'm supposed to post links, but it's under the heading 'Are My Contacts Inside Out?' on their site.
