    Default Does anyone find true eye one days dry?

    I wear them on occasion as I am mainly a rgp lens wearer. I find them dry and sometimes can get coated with lipid deposits quite quickly almost right away when the lenses go in.

    Anyone have the same issues with Acuvue tru eye one days?

    I don't wear them often but the end of the day deposits are much higher then with other lenses. I doubt I could get a second day out of the lenses. My ECP doesn't think the lenses, most patients, are worth the money. The US version of the lenses is different then what's sold in Europe. My experience, and my ECP advice, might not be applicable to you.

    I tried them cuz they were new and I'm an ecp so cost was not an issue but I have to agree these lenses get coated with deposits sometimes right away and yes by days end are un wearable.

    I'm not against spending more money, particularly for something important like eye care. The point is the lenses are more expensive and in at least some aspects inferior to less expensive lenses. Almost like J&J is able to market them because the material is new, not because they're better. I only tried the US version.

    Do your patients typically experience the same deposits with their TrueEye lenses as you do?

    ironically patients with a healthy and normal tear film (non dry eyed patients) the lenses work well and remains clean at the end of the day...

    But...for those with contact lens related dry eye or reg dry eye even moderately...the material attracts lipid deposits rapidly. Theoretically I think its the slightly higher water content in the narafilcon a material combined with a higher amount of silicone.

    Acuvue oasys has a lower water content and deposit resistance is def higher...

    agreed not worth the money.
