Thread: Long time user of Oasys, notice any change in lens, comfort?

  1. #101

    Default So I guess I'm not crazy...

    Is anyone still having problems?
    Will anyone post the lot numbers they are having issues with?

    I have been wearing contacts for 20 years. I have worn Acuvue Oasys since they came out and I love them- until this month.

    I went to Costco two weeks ago and got 4 new boxes of lenses. I put a new one in one eye, but left the other older lens in- it wasnt bothering me so I didnt feel the need to change it. About 2 days later, I felt like I needed to change the new lens already. This time I changed both, just to keep track of when I was changing them.
    Within the last two weeks I have used ten of my new lenses. I get about a day or so and them by vision is blurry, my eyes are red and itchy. I can barely drive! When I put new ones in, I can see perfectly clear again but a few hours later they are extremely blurry and my eyes are very irritated. I have tried taking them out and cleaning them, but when i put them back in they are still very blurry and they bother me. It even looks like there is a hazy film on them.
    I haven't worn makeup in days, I look like I'm stoned, and I can't see! What the heck is going on here?? Of course the Acuvue hotline is closed for the weekend, so I'm going to cancel my weekend getaway so I can visit my eye doctor tomorrow. But for the record, I'm posting the lot number of these lenses- just to see if anyone else has the same.
    Lot B00BLK7
    exp 2016/04
    BC 8.4 DIA 14.0 D -6.0 (not sure if that matters)

    Hi Ouch,

    Yes, I am still having issues the Acuvue Oasys lenses (I have numerous previous posts describing the specifics). Basically, like you, the lenses used to be very comfortable and now they are not. It seems to me that J&J has a quality control problem.

    I have had issues with numerous Lot numbers, however, they have all started with either B00B or B009. The expiration dates have ranged between 2015 and 2016.

    J&J is always helpful on the phone, but, the underlying quality control issues persist.

    Please keep us informed in terms of what you learn.

    When did those lenses start becoming uncomfortable, Finbar? I tried to see if Acuvue Oasys had announced something "new and improved" that might explain why they suddenly became uncomfortable for you, but didn't find anything. If you can narrow it down to the spring of 2011 or something, that might help my search.

    Hi nakedeyes,

    When did those lenses start becoming uncomfortable, Finbar?
    Thank you for researching this! I first noticed the problem last year in August after I ordered a new supply.

    Mine are Lot L001JU68DZ and I'm contacting clearly contacts today to advise that 3 out of the box are doing the same thing. They've already given me a store credit for the other 2 and said they will look into it.

    I'm glad you could get some resolution on this issue. Let us know how it turns out, okay?

    So, did Clearly Contacts "look into it" yet?

    Did you get over your skepticism and try that new box of contacts?

    Recently, I put on a fresh pair of Oasys, I noticed after about 5 hours, vision was a bit cloudy, eyes were getting uncomfortable. I put in eye drops, and it did not help. I had to toss them out because I don't have any solution since I've been wearing them as continous wear and never had to keep any solution at home. I then had to wear 1 day Moist the next day.

    Over the next few days, I bought Opti free and tried on Oasys again, and it was the same discomfort, cloudy after about 5 hours, I took them out and clean them, disinfect over night and tried to wear them the next day. As soon as I put them on, it was cloudy. Toss this 2nd pair out

    Wore 1 day Moist for a few days, went to my eye dr, he said eye health good as expected for my age, maybe a little dry eye condition but I can continue wearing contact lens. I told him about the Oasys problem, he said I should moniter and just use 1 day moist and try again with the Oasys as he sees no eye health threats as yet.

    I tried again with a new pair Oasys, 1 day, I was able to wear them comfortably the whole day, so I wore them to sleep, the next day, vision was cloudy and when I disinfected over night, the next morning, when I put them in, it was cloudy again, I tossed them out, this is the 3rd pair.

    This week, I took out my Oasys every night and this is the 6th day, it still does not feel very comfortable as before when I used to wear them 6 nights continous. Now with disinfecting every night, there is no cloudy vision, but it feels kind of dryish in the eyes but still bearable with eye drops twice a day.

    I read in another thread TruEye, someone mentioned about Oasys possibly had a change in material.

    Any one has any experience to share or know if there is indeed a change in material for Oasys? Thanks.
    Try a pair of lenses from a different batch number. Could be QC, I don't think Johns & Johnson changed the product. Contact the seller, and they will send you replacements from another batch.

    Disposable lenses are manufactured by computerized machine to maintain pristine quality control. So its rare and it needs to be reported to the manufacturer. Now and again i see this crop up but Im not happy about it from an ecp point of view as lenses are medical devices.

    Default Same Problem, different day

    I'm a long term extended wear, sleep in my contacts user for 28 years. I've used Acuvue Oasys since they 1st came out (tried AirOptix, but they weren't quite as comfortable or long lasting). Prior to 2011, when getting the "non cut off corner" packs of Oasys contacts, I could get up to 6 weeks of use out of these, cleaning them every 1-2 weeks. Yes I know, not at all what someone would recommend, but I'm just telling you my experience. IN the last 1-2 years, I've had cloudy vision, having to change to a new contact every week, itchy eyes, cloudy contacts no matter how I clean them, and occasionally having close up vision problems (with no rhyme or reason to why or when).

    This forum came up because I googled the problems with the contacts. SOME THING is different... the old no cut off corners lenses that I still have perform just as I've described above, the cut off corner packs no matter how many packs I've used over the last 1-2 years are constantly needing to be changed.

    I'm about to go down the path of trying different lenses and even try the 8.8 instead of 8.4 of the Oasys. Funny thing is my college roomie and I had this discussion tonight and she's having the EXACT same problem (although she only sleeps in them occasionally).

    Are others still having this problem? Thanks in advance.

    Yup, the saga continues for me. I have been trying other lenses, too. Unfortunately, Oasys lenses (when you are wearing two good ones) are the best I have tried. Currently, the second best I have tried are Extreme H2O 59% Thin. I am hoping to try a few other lenses in the near future.

    I am very disappointed with J&J's treatment of this issue

    Wow, this is a really, really long thread. How much better are they Oasys than the Extreme H2O?

    First off, Oasys is NOT the best CL in the world. It's the best lens for SOME people, IF it fits and keeps your eyes healthy. If I had a dollar for every patient who THOUGHT, ' My lenses are comfortable and my vision is good, so everything must be fine'. The priorities should be, 1) health of the eye, 2) fit of the lens, 3) quality of vision, and 4) comfort. If the lens does not fit as it should, vision and comfort may be fine, but long term problems WILL develop !
    I can even count how many people I've had to refit from 8.4 to 8.8 BC because J&J sales people gave wrong information to Drs and contact lens fitters. Sales people are not contact lens fitters.
    There is also a problem I call 'Corneal Exaustion Syndrome', wich I have been seeing a lot of over the last ten years. You eye has a 'metabolism'. The CL should work in balance with it. If you wear baddly fitted lenses or over-wear lenses (even though they feel fine and the vision is good) you will upset that metabolism. The eyes can 'reject' contacts.

    I've just came back to Oasys for Astigmatism after a year and a half not using them.
    The last batch I had were in the old style boxes and I stopped using them as i found they started to get cloudy after a few hrs wear and I could always feel them in my eye.
    Decided to give them a go and have got ones that expire in 2017 in a different style box to the last ones I had and I think they're fantastic!
    No more cloudiness, can't feel them in my eye, very moist, incredible rotational stability and I can actually see better with them than the biofinity/air optics I'd been using even though the Oasys don't come as close to my prescription - I'm delighted with them!
