    Talking Blurry vision with oasys

    Before using oasys, i used 1 day acuvue for astig. It was great as it gave me crisp,stable and normal vision. However, a few days after using oasys, i found that i had blurry vision immediately after inserting my contact lenses. After 15~30minutes, it starts to get better but my vision is not perfect at all as i couldnt see words that are far from me(I.e 20 feet).I called my eye doctor and told me that it was normal for my vision to be less than perfect as i am wearing a biweekly disposable contact lenses. I really need some precious advice here(:

    Welcome to Lens 101, engchai1993. When faced with a mystery such as this, I like to eliminate the obvious first. If you can see clearly with 1 Day Acuvue for Astigmatism, and not so well with Oasys, could it be because Oasys are not toric lenses that correct astigmatism? I find it very difficult to believe that an eye care professional could make such an obvious blunder, but let's just get that out of the way, shall we?

    Look at the box. If it just says "Oasys" then they're not toric and that's why your vision is blurred. You have the wrong contact lenses.

    If you are wearing a toric lens, then it sounds as if the lenses are taking 15-20 minutes to correctly align to their proper axis.

    I don't see why a 2 weekly lens should give inferior vision to a daily toric lens, provided you are cleaning them properly. Do you still have inferior vision when you put in new 2 weekly lenses?

    If vision is still not optimal with fresh lenses, it sounds as if the lenses need to be changed to a slightly better fit, or to ensure the lenses are sitting on their correct axis.

    Anyway, it needs a return visit to your optician I think.

    I always thought those toric lenses righted themselves pretty quickly. Does it really take 20 minutes sometimes?

    I don't know as I have never worn toric lenses. Maybe it varies from person to person, but I was just looking for an explanation to the problems reported.

    I don't think it would take the tear film more than a minute to stabilise.

    Who here can give us a maximum toric lens alignment time? I don't wear toric lenses either, but I was under the impression that it only took a few blinks.

    I wear a different toric lens, proclear multifocal toric, but I can tell you that it can take 20 to 30 minutes for the lens to settle down.

    I guess so. I guess I was kind of hoping for a special "trick" you've developed of moving the lenses in your eyes or something.

    I had a similar problem wearing these lenses. Try Biofinity lenses or Avaira. You may not be tolerant to the wetting agent used by Accuvue.

    A friend of mine told me that when he ate at a particular restaurant his waitress gave him the check and also tied a knot in a cherry stem in her mouth for his viewing pleasure.

    I don't know about him, but that would definitely be worth a bigger tip from me.

    Smile Avaira cures Presbyopia! Acuvue Oasys are blurry up close!

    Thanks to Avaira I can see up close again!

    I have worn Acuvue Oasys for many years with no problems, however recently everything within a few feet has become blurry.
    The Optometrist stated that the ONLY course of action was to wear reading glasses or get Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia (which is difficult to get used to and is a constant inconvenience).

    Many people are having blurring issues with Acuvue Oasys which are cured by changing to Avaira. I mentioned this to my Optometrist and he had never heard of this and he didn't believe it . . . "you can't believe everything you read on the Internet."

    After some discussion, he decided to humor me with a trial pair of Avaira.
    I put them in and it was like night and day. Everything was crystal clear up close and far away! The optometrist retested me with them in and was completely shocked! I am now using the Avairas and have perfect vision.

    Does anyone know why the Acuvue Oasys are defective and don't work upclose?

    Thanks to the posts for getting me to switch to Avaira contacts to cure my Presbyopia!!!

    I doubt that Acuvue Oasys is "defective." That would mean that most people would have the same problem. I looked around the Internet when I saw this question and I found a few people who say that they have a hard time seeing close up with Acuvue Oasys, but lots of people also say they love everything about them.

    I'm glad you like Avaira lenses anyway. Good seeing to you.

    As I mentioned in my post, I was a happy long time user of Acuvue Oasys . . .

    However, I believe that Acuvue Oasys are not as flexible, versatile or adaptable for people who's vision requires a greater range between near and far sightedness. Many people are now wearing reading glasses or have been switched to Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia and they DON'T NEED TO SUFFER BECAUSE OF THE SHORTCOMINGS OF ACUVUE OASYS.

    Acuvue Oasys are not defective because of manufacturing issues, they are defective because of a flawed design. Don't drive a Yugo with a poor driving experience, drive a well made sport car which gives you clear and responsive handling.

    The Avaira provides a greater range, better performance and clear vision up close.

    I've worn contacts every day for the last 25 years.
    I've been using Acuvue Oasys for 10 years with no problems, then my vision changed and Acuvue Oasys was blurry for everything up to 3 feet.
    I couldn't read the computer, books or the speedometer (although that probably wouldn't help me on a speeding ticket)

    I wore the new Acuvue prescription for a month and went searching for alternatives for reading glasses. Then I found the information on Avaira and decided to give it a try. They work great!

    Get rid of your reading glasses and ask for a free trail pair of Avairas.

    It's not that I am a huge fan of Avairas, although they have served me well.
    It's that Acuvue Oasys caused such a huge difference in the ability to see up close that I want to help save people from thinking that there is no option other than reading glasses or Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia.

    The option is, get rid of Acuvue Oasys because they are not flexible enough to provide good vision up close and far away. Don't compromise or believe that you just can't fix your Presbyopia, your presbyopia is probably caused by or enhanced by the use of Acuvue Oasys.

    Try switching to any other lens and see the difference.
    I agree that something happened with the manufacturing or design of the original lenses.

    No, my dear 3scompany! That is just what you are adding now. The remark of previous poster was that the Oasys manufacturer sells "new coke". Probably the reasoning is that if there are unanounced changes in a product then this makes it unreliable for users, and that would be the reason then not to use this product (and not the fact that there is a personal dislike!)

    I must say that my own experience is that Oasys just gave blurry vision when I tried them and I do not know whether any changes have taken place. And the Avaira that was mentioned in comparison was also blurry. In my case they were without astigmatism and there was no bad fitting or incorrect strength. Just much worse vision than with glasses or with certain other lens types..

    To be completely precise: choices that give me good vision are Biofinity, Proclear, old fashioned Acuvue, glasses, and probably a few others (all without astigmatism). It is a bit of a mystery why I have blurry vision with Oasys, Avaira, Advance (and maybe some others).

    As I said, the alternatives are there, so I have no real problem. It's just that I don't understand it!

    I don't think that presbyopia is caused or "enhanced" by contact lenses. Here's a bit of an article I found:

    "Presbyopia is the progressive inability of the eye to focus on near objects as a person ages. The cause of it has been widely studied over the years and is still subject to debate, but many ophthalmologists agree that presbyopia is caused by a loss of elasticity of the natural crystalline lens of the eye, making it difficult for this lens to change shape in order to focus on close objects. Changes in the curvature of the lens as it grows over time and loss of power in the muscles attached to the lens have also been postulated as causes." -- http://www.presbia.com/presbyopia/index.php

    People are being MIS-DIAGNOSED with presbyopia.
    They don't really have presbyopia. They are being given Acuvue Oasys contacts which cannot support a full range of vision. People get blurry vision up close with Acuvue Oasys while they have perfect vision with other brands.

    I'm sure that does happen, but I was unable to find any solid numbers, such as how many people were misdiagnosed with presbyopia in 2005, for example. Do you have any statistics? Make sure you tell us where you got your numbers from. People on Lens 101 like to look it up.

    But it is 2011, isn't it? Why 2005? Anyhow, I'd expect that presbyopia could just be tested without wearing any lenses, simply by checking how much accomodation your eyes are capable of!

    And if some of these contacts give blurry vision, then their optical errors are added to a (beginning) presbyopia, making it seem worse. Why the lenses are bad to begin with (at all distances they are worse!) remains to be explained..

    And by the way, in my experience Avaira belongs to the bad ones (together with Advance and Optima, to name two other brands).

    Why 2005? I don't know what John316 was thinking, but sometimes it takes a while to gather the data and crunch the numbers. I'd still like more recent numbers, though. Say 2009 or 2010, if possible. It's almost July of 2011, so I would think that they've got the data compiled for 2010 by now, but I wouldn't know where to find it.

    Also, when it comes to something like misdiagnoses, I would think a lot of doctors would like to prevent anyone from finding out about them, so sometimes it's not just a matter of crunching the numbers, but digging up accurate ones.

    But regardless of the brand of lens, why not put your little finger on the front and twist it 90 degrees if its wrong? If you rotate it close to the correct angle it will complete the adjustment by itself.

    The only bad case is if its about 90 degrees off (It then can rotate in either direction to correct its orientation, so mechanically it "doesn't know what to do!" Like a pencil balancing on its tip, but much slower in its movement..)

    So wear multi-focal toric lenses do you? Do you like them, other than the fact that they take some times to "settle down"?

    The "settle down" time doesn't bother me at all. What bothers me is the lack of crisp vision like I get with eyeglasses. But it is my only option in contacts right now if I wish not to wear eyeglasses. So I adapt.

    Unfortunately it's pretty common for people to say that their contact lenses don't give them vision that's as crisp and clear as glasses. Although, I hear that rigid gas permeable (aka "hard" lenses) give pretty good vision--once you get used to wearing them.

    So I guess it depends on what's important to you. Do you want comfortable lenses? Wear the soft ones. Do you want lenses that will last a long time? Then vial lenses are the ones for you. Is crisp, clear vision the most important factor in your decision to buy contacts, then RGP lenses will likely be your choice.

    The previous poster talked about multi-focals. In that case a whole new set of alternatives have to be considered:

    1 Part-time reading glasses (together with normal single-focus contacts).
    2 Multi-focal lenses using the blurry system (the ones with two strengths interwoven, usually in concentric rings).
    3 Multi-focals lenses that shift up and down to get the two different strengths.
    4 Single-focus soft lenses and shift one of them completely to the outside of your eye to get nearby vision (only possible if you're near-sighted).
    5 Wear one single-focus lens for nearby and one for far away (mono-vision).
    6 Inventing a self-adapting contact lens and becoming a millionaire.

    Since I was born in 1958, I'm currently considering my options..

    So have you been working on that self-adapting contact lens thing?

    No working! I merely thought about it.. Implanting a substitute lens filled with fluid to replace the natural one which has become too rigid, that seems the most likely solution to me. If you want to further develop it please try! As far as I'm concerned you would deserve to become a millionaire

    Yes, the way they have those enormous eyes and that the remote is as big as they are makes that a very cute picture.

    Now, we were talking about blurry lenses at the beginning of this thread. Is it normal for contact lenses such as Acuvue Oasys to be blurry for a short time until the person gets used to wearing them?
