Thread: Trial Acuvue Trueye Quality Control

  1. #1

    Default Trial Acuvue Trueye Quality Control

    I just received trial pairs of the Acuvue Trueye lenses. The left was completely without my prescription. The right scratched on my eye really badly. I tried the second pair and the left lens itched after awhile and the right eye scratched again. I don't know whether I got bad lots or I'm allergic. I called jnj and they took down the numbers of the lots and told me to tell my optician. Anyone else have a problem with these lenses?

    I'm sorry those lenses were so uncomfortable for you. When you say that the left lens in your first pair was "completely without [your] prescription" do you mean they were the wrong prescription, or maybe no prescription at all?

    Paws,

    I'm sorry to hear about your eye being scratched! Proclears did that to me a few times when they ripped apart in my eye!!!!!!

    I just finished a trial of TruEyes for 7 days about 2 weeks ago. Speaking from experience, it sounds like the lot/batch of the lenses you were given are defective. I've received defective lenses too, so be careful or it can scratch your cornea (which has happened to me when I was clipping my infants nails one time, yeeeeeeeeeOUCH!).

    Definitely get in contact with your OD with the lot # so they can check into it. I've never heard of a contact without a RX in it! Just a blank contact? Weird!

    I ended up not going with TruEyes because after about 4-5 hours of wearing them they became dry and uncomfy and I had to rewet at least 3 times a day which was ridiculous! My eyes were achy and tight feeling by the end of the day, and I had bad headaches. I do have to say they were comfortable lenses when first inserted and my vision was crisp and clear, but the other problems I had with them trumped the little bit of good in them. Have you had any problems with cloudiness with your lenses? Do they seem to get dirty or murky?

    Those contact lenses with no prescription are called "plano" lenses. (As in Plano, Texas? Sure. Why not?) Usually plano lenses are also colored for those folks who want to change their eye color but don't need vision correction. I don't know why you'd want plano clear lenses though.

    LOL, yes Plano, TX. So there kind of like a "placebo" lens....still weird...Ah, but I forgot that some people wear colored contacts just for fun! Weird too

    Colored contact lenses with no prescription are somewhat understandable, but clear, no-prescription contact lenses make no sense. I don't even think they make such useless things, do they?

    Sure, I think it would be fun to wear plano colored contact lenses just to change your eye color for the evening. I met someone who wore fake glasses though. Fake glasses! I was sometimes mocked for wearing glasses, now here comes my friend with the most beautiful blue eyes you've ever seen, eyes that see perfectly, and she's wearing glasses! You know what though? She was so pretty that she even looked good in glasses.

    R2D2,

    you're cracking me up! I've always wanted to see what I would look like with brown eyes.....but not willing to pay the money for them My mom and sister have brown hair/eyes, and my dad/me/lil bro are lighter headed with green eyes....the purtiest green eyes you've ever seen! I hate wearing my glasses, I can't imagine someone wanting to wear them for fun! But hey, whatever floats their boat, eh mate?

    I wonder how many people represented on this site now wear glasses because of the way they were teased for wearing glasses. Now we have people who don't need glasses but wear them anyway, and some of them have the nerve to look good!

    This is bugging me so I need to do it. I think Deepurple meant to say "I wonder how many people represented on this site now wear contacts because of the way they were teased for wearing glasses."

    I called jnj vision and they told me to go back to my Optometrist and ask for more lenses. They said the lenses were mass produced and that defects do happen. I said if the trials weren't good how could i expect their lenses to be good when I purchased them on my own. Jnj said they would stand behind their lenses and offer replacements...hmmm. I wonder. My OD said just to try the remaining 3 that I have. I hate to question her, but they're from the same lot. I don't want to mess up my eyes with the same batch of lenses. Not sure what to do. Any ideas?

    I read the beginning post in this thread and it sounds like you got two bad pairs of lenses in a row. If you had put on four lenses total and one of them wasn't quite right, I'd try another pair. However four lenses from one box is more than just a "defect." It sounds like the whole batch is bad.
    Me personally, I hate throwing something away if there's any chance it may be useful. However, I haven't just put two bad pairs of contact lenses in my eyes. You should probably ask your eye doctor for another box, making sure it's a different lot.

    Lots and lots of people wear 1-Day Acuvue TruEye and they're just fine. The odds against your getting four bad lenses in the same box are staggering. The odds of your getting another bad lens from an entirely different lot are astronomical. I think you've used up all your bad luck in this.

    I'm glad you're going to give them one more shot. If I were in your place I think I'd be pretty reluctant to try them again too.

    You mentioned the possibility that you are allergic to those lenses. That could be, but your symptoms don't sound like allergies to a non-professional like me. So maybe it's your eyes rather than the contacts and a different brand is in order. I'm looking forward to your next post. I hope things go better for you then.

    Tried the Acuvue 1 day Trueye lenses again. I was given 5 for each eye. I found 1 defective lens in the lot so far, and I've tried three. I hope the other 2 in each lot are good. It's a little scary thinking that so many are defective. I like these lenses for comfort the best and plan to call jnj to see what they would do if 2 months down the line you discover a bad lens.

    Wow, you're really not having any luck with those contacts, are you paws? I hope you finally find some contacts that you can put in your eyes and forget about them. Let us know what happens next, okay?

    So when you say "defective" you mean that either the lens has no prescription or it's very uncomfortable to wear, correct? So it seems that your experience with Acuvue 1 Day Trueye has either been really good or really bad, huh?

    So how are you getting along with your 1 Day lenses by now, paws? Are things getting better?

    I decided to order the Acuvue TruEye since they were the most comfortable. J & J said they would replace any defective lenses if I notified my optician. I did find one lens so far that was curved strangely and uncomfortable to wear, but most of the lenses were fine. They are quite expensive, but the ease of wear and not having to deal with solutions is a luxury I enjoy. Considering the costs of other things such as going out to eat etc. I find this to be a deal in comparison.

    So were you able to get those contact lenses replaced without any fuss?
