Thread: Is Moist more comfortable than TruEye?

  1. #1

    Default Is Moist more comfortable than TruEye?

    Hi,

    Last time I used contact lenses was more than 20 years ago. After many years of using rigid contact lenses my eyes became very sensitive and dry. Recently I tried to use disposable contact lenses hoping that technology is advanced enough to avoid dryness and irritation.

    First I tried Acuvue Moist for 2 days. I was relieved that I could wear lenses more than 8 hours but still I suffered from dryness and irritation towards the end. After that I tried Acuvue Trueye (European version with Narafilcon A) for 5 days hoping that they would feel better than Moist given that they are more expensive and have better reviews. At first I felt that they were better than Moist but after couple of hours I faced similar dryness and irritation.

    Even though I did not find big difference between TruEye and Moist I bought 60 days stock of TruEye. I am still not convinced if TruEye worth extra money. I was looking at Acuvuearabia internet pages and confused even more with the below description of the TruEye and Moist lenses.

    en.acuvuearabia.com/trueye
    1•DAY ACUVUE® TruEye® contact lenses are ideal if you:
    • are trying Contact Lenses for the first time.
    • want a lens that is specially designed for the health of your eyes as if you are wearing no contact lenses at all*
    • want to wear contact lenses all day and into the evening or just want to wear lenses a few days a week

    en.acuvuearabia.com/moist
    1•DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® contact lenses are ideal if you:
    • Want long lasting comfort and extended wearing times.
    • Suffer from dryness or discomfort towards the end of the day with your current disposable contact lenses
    • Suffer from seasonal allergies
    • Want to wear a fresh and clean lens every day of the week.

    According to this description Moist is supposed to give better comfort everyday of the week while TruEye is suitable for first time users who wear lenses a few days a week.

    Can anybody confirm if Moist is better suitable for comfort against dryness?

    Also, are there other brands of disposable lenses that offer better comfort than Acuvue ones?

    If you have dry eyes it will be a challenge with all contact lenses. There are only a few soft lenses that Actually work with dry eyes.
    Coopervision proclear
    Benz extreme h2O
    Air optix aqua

    Newer materials with rgp lenses
    Flouro perm 151
    Menicon z
    Paragon hds
    Boston xo2

    All highly wettable rgp lenses.

    Thank you luvbostonxo2. I ordered Coopervision Proclear 1 day to try. I am wearing it on one eye and Acuvue TruEye on the other one. The difference is huge for me.

    After 5 hours I do not even feel Proclear 1 Day on my eye while Acuvue TruEye started to irritate my eye already after 2 hours. Also my vision with TruEye is getting blurry now.

    I did not try any RGP lenses yet but if Proclear 1 Day continue to be comfortable at the end of the day, I would stick to it. I like the convenience of the daily disposables.

    I only have one problem with Proclear 1 day. Some of the lenses in the box were upside down. I am not sure if they are packaged like that. Is there a way to check the correct way to wear this lens? There was no '123' mark like TrueEye is having.

    I don't understand what you mean by "upside down." Did you mean "inside out"? If there's not "123" mark, then you'll have to look at the shape of the lens on your finger. Maybe this illustration will help:

    let me re-iterate!

    Cooper vision Proclear lenses are fantastic for dry eye but yes they are thin lenses and the edges can tear easily. If that is an issue try BENZ hydrogel research extreme h20 extra. These lenses are great as an alternative to Proclear.

    Thank you Luvbostonxo2's. I am loving Proclear 1 day. It is no big deal that they are thin as they are daily disposable.

    I also tried Ciba Dailies and Bausch and Lomb Softlens. I found Ciba Dailies similar to Acuvue. However Baush and Lomb Softlens was very comfortable even after 12 hours.

    At the moment my first choice is Proclear 1 Day and second best is Baush and Lomb Softlens.

    I will still try the Air Optix Night & Day Aqua but if the difference is not too big I will stick to Proclear 1 day. I like the flexibility of daily disposables.

    Hi. I am in Asia. Getting tired of Acuvue's pricing tactics. Now I can only get TruEye apparently, for a god-awful price. I tried their "Moist" lenses which were super thin and highly irritating. So TruEye is the only choice for me at 64 bucks for 15 days. No thanks.

    So I'm looking for alternatives. B&L have been way too thin in the past, and therefore terrible. I am of Asian descent, not sure if this has to do with anything.

    With this in mind, would Proclear or Benz (Hyrdagel stuff) be worthwhile for me to try? Would love some tips or pointers.

    Thanks!

    Our Fresh daily disposables (Clear-1day in Asia), made from hioxifilcon A, are a problem solver lens that will often work for patients who struggle to find a comfortable lens. Our prices are generally going to be significantly lower than TruEye, though I can't speak to Asian pricing specifically (and even then it will vary country to country). The lenses are widely available throughout much of Asia, so there's a good chance they're available wherever you are. Check out our Singaporean website for more information: http://www.clearlab.com.sg/index.cfm?gpid=3.
