Default Clouding?

Okay, I've been wearing glasses for ten years and I just switched over to contacts about two weeks ago.
I have astigmatism, and my doctor gave me Acuvue Oasys contacts for my first trial pair. When I went back for the two-week follow up, I told him I'd been having problems with blurry vision when I blink. He told me it was normal and that I should give it another week.
My contacts keep clouding over. I'm not sure if this is a normal problem, but even after the initial blurriness from blinking wears off, my contacts sort of blur over as if someone poured water on them. After I blink hard for a couple of times, it goes away, and this happens a few times a day. It's not as if it happens every time I blink.
Is this normal?
Should I just try a different brand? He wants to try Biofinity if I keep having serious problems with Acuvue. I don't know how contacts should operate, so I hesitate telling about the clouding because it might just be something I have to get used to.
How is Biofinity torics compared to Acuvue Oasys?

contact lenses for astigmatism are called "toric." They have to be on your eye a certain way so they can correct your vision. For that reason toric lenses have "weights" built in so that if the lenses happen to rotate when you blink, they'll go back into place. My first thought is that your lenses might stick sometimes. What do you think?

So I take it that it's been over a week since you last talked to your doctor about this blurry vision?

HELP!!

I've been using Acuvue Oasys Astigmatism lenses for at least 3 years now, no previous problems. I recently opened a new pair and started to have problems immediatly of blurred vision. The prescription has not changed what so ever. BUT the lenses develop this white film, cloudy residue on them after just a few minutes of wear. It isn't my eye makeup, nothing has changed there, that shouldnt be the issue. I then threw the lens out and figured they were bad. Next day opened another brand new pair, and AGAIN my eyes were cloudy within a few hours. I take out the lenses and I can see white film all over them!!! WHAT ON EARTH IS THE PROBLEM!!! HELp!!!!

Another suggestion is that the material that those new lenses are made of could be a problem.
