Default TruEye is way better than Moist!

I tried few pairs of Moist during the weekend and the result was not so good.

It's not as comfortable as TruEye and sticks to my eye. Very hard to take them off. No wonder why my optometrist is selling 90pk for $80. That's 43% cheaper than TruEye. What you pay is what you get.

I am going to order TruEye.

The best way to decide which lenses to wear is to try them out. You say you like the 1-Day Acuvue TruEye lenses better, and you speak from experience. That's just the kind of thing we need to know around here. Thanks for your help.

I found the opposite after going to Trueye from Acuvue Moist.

The Trueye seemed to stick to my eyes a lot more and were generally more uncomfortable at the end of the day. Eventually my eyes started getting tired and red and I had to stop using them.

However I was using the European narafilcon A version of Trueye with more silicone and less hydrogel compared to the US version so it may explain the difference.

Are you going to try the US version, or just keep wearing Acuvue Moist?

Yeah I would like to try the US version, but they don't have it in my BC value

Probably just stick with the Moist for now I guess.

I did read somewhere though that someone who switched from the Australian/European Trueye to the US version found the US version a lot more comfortable.

Maybe you can ask your eye doctor of there's some way that you can get the US version in your base curve. What do you think?

Thanks for the suggestions, but funnily enough, it's just not available in a 9.0, where the euro version is in both 8.5 and 9.0. Unless that has changed very recently. There's a thread about it here "How come only base curve 8.5?".

I will ask the opticians about the Oasys in 8.8 next time though, although I'm not overly impressed with the Silicone hydrogel material so far.

Okay, I guess you just can't get those lenses in a 9.0 base curve in the United States. Maybe there's no demand for some reason.
I hope you find something you like Peanut, and I hope we can help you find it here.

Thanks!

My corneas seem to be quite flat. The last time I went for a checkup the optician suggested that it was a hereditary trait in certain populations. Perhaps that has something to do with the demand in the US.

I guess the 50 million or so Irish Americans sortof blows that theory out of the water
Perhaps they have more problems with steep base curves though.

Optician suggested it was relevant to celtic populations, so that would be Ireland/Scotland/Wales/Brittany I suppose.

That's very interesting, Peanut99. I never thought about the way contact lenses fit a particular segment of the population. Maybe someone will see this and write a research paper on it.

I've never heard of such a thing either. I did a short Google search for "contact lens fitting Celtic" and the only thing I found that was relevant was this:

Does anyone have a picture of someone wearing contact lenses like those?

Woah. Cool lenses. Those will almost certainly get a second look from unsuspecting members of the public.

Couldn't find a picture, Droopy. I guess they're so subtle that you can't see them at a natural distance. They'd probably just make your eyes look pink.

That might not be a bad thing if you wanted someone to get a little closer . . .
