Default Recommendations?

Hey guys

I am a new contact user, started back in January...

My doctor set me up with Biomedic Torics and I have a pretty high Rx of -8.00 and -9.00.

Well I am just completely unsatisfied with them, they make my eyes turn red after a while, and feel all dry and itchy after a while like im wearing plastic...

So I asked if I could change my brand or order trials, and my Optician/Doctor refused twice after taking a look at them under the microscope and told me he sees absolutely nothing wrong and that they are well settled and moving around...and I agree given hes a great doctor at age 68. But I want change.

So looking around I found Biofinity torics with a BC of 8.7 and Diameter 14.5 that exactly match Biomedic Torics. So I have decided to use my out of network benefit crap and buy it. What do you guys think? Would you recommend it?

Also what about Acuvue, since the BC is 8.6, do you think it will affect me?

Thanks.

Take a look at what happened roughly after 3-4 hours, its getting really annoying and I hate it:

Hi fubag. Welcome to the Lens 101 community.

You say you just started wearing Biomedics Toric contact lenses in January, so that would make you a five month veteran, huh? Well, that's really not all that long. Many people start out wearing them a couple of hours a day, and then they gradually build up to wearing them a full 12 hours. Have you done this? Before you give up and try a different brand, maybe you need to cut back and not wear the Biomedics for as long and slowly get used to them.

ya i have gotten used to them, wore them straight for a while, a month almost, 8-12 hours a day in college, but the redness gradually worsens every day a bit more and more...that picture is the LEAST amount of redness I have seen in a while...

just wondering if you guys would recommend biofinity torics, given my high Rx, and similar BC and Diameter

I think you're right about maybe changing brands. Unfortunately, I don't know as much about Biofinity contacts in particular as I do about contact lenses in general.

I have worn the Biofinity normal lens and found them very comfortable. They are very high in oxygen permeability, so good for your eyes. The Biomedic Torics are made of Ocufilcon D and the Dk (oxygen permeability) is only 20, so rather low.

Try the Biofinity and see how you get on, but the fit should be checked with your eye doctor.

is it true that its really hard to take out and stuff? my Rx is high, so the lens I guess will be slightly thicker than most users...so hypothetically it should be easier to take out right? my biomedics are REALLY REALLY easy to take out

also will the fit really be that different? considering biomedics and biofinity both have 8.7 BC and 14.5 Diameter, and I assume the axis if kept the same wont really make a huge difference, am I correct?

much thanks to the users of this forum, big help!

I find the normal Biofinity lenses very easy to take out by just pinching the lens on the cornea and taking it off. The normal, non-toric, Biofinity lenses are quite thin, so initially I did find them more like daily lenses in their fiddly handling, but you soon get used to handling them.

In theory, the fit should be OK, since both are marketed by CooperVision, but nonetheless, you should still have the fit checked by your eye care practitioner. You don't want to damage your eyes and if you go to a more cooperative eye care practitioner, you could probably be fitted with a pair of trial Biofinity lenses for free.

Hi everybody. Thank you for such an interesting thread.

Knotlob, does this mean that thicker contact lenses are easier to handle? I always thought that "thinner the better."

I think 'thinner' equates to better comfort and it will also be more oxygen permeable for a given lens material than a thicker lens of the same strength. Manufacturers normally quote the oxygen permeability Dk for a lens with a strength of -3.00D.

Generally, longer life lenses (monthly and yearly) will be thicker/stronger in order to resist the increased handling.

The flexibility of the lens will also be important. The manufacturers refer to flexibility as modulus, so a low modulus lens is going to be very flexible and may 'feel' thinner, as it may be more fiddly to handle - fold in on itself when on your finger, especially if you add a drop or two of solution to the lens before putting it in your eye. Thicker/higher modulus/less flexible lenses will normally be easier to handle.

A low modulus lens will 'drape' over the cornea better too.

That's a good post Knotlob. Thanks for your help.

So can we sum it up by saying that a thin, low modulus lens may be more "fiddly" to handle, but once you get it in your eye, it will be more comfortable than a thick lens?

Yes, for a given material, that is right. Different materials, i.e. silicone hydrogel may be more comfortable for some than say conventional hydrogel, since it is more oxygen permeable.

Hey now, let's not get vulgar. This isn't that kind of website.

Here's what I'm thinking, and I hope I'm wrong.

If your eye doctor examined your Biomedics Torics and found them to be in good condition, I have this feeling that no matter what lenses you try, you're going to feel the same way.
Shoes are a handy analogy. If your feet hurt even though the shoes you're wearing are the right size and brand new, the problem may be with your feet and not the shoes.
If you're wearing contact lenses that fit properly and are in good condition, even when examined by a professional, the problem may not be with the lenses. Maybe you could benefit from some form of treatment for dry eyes. Have you looked into that possibility?

yes my doctor gave my some optive lubricant drops that are safe for contacts i guess..i tried them out...they seemed to help a bit, until i noticed that it didnt really solve the redness problem and just gave me comfort for like 5 mins when I placed them in, i told him that and hes like 'well i guess you have to carry a bottle around and put a few drops in ur eyes everyday'...that potentially means spending an extra $15 a month for a stupid bottle to carry around giving me like 5 mins of comfort every time i use them and then back to the redness again...i am going to go with Knotlob on this issue and agree with him that it is a Dk value issue and that biomedics suck in oxygen flow to the corena given my high power and thickness of the lens its probably even less than the advertised 19 Dk, which is usually for a -3 power i guess, so if I choose biofinity torics same diameter same base curve with a higher advertised Dk, I have a feeling they are going to work, i am praying they will work

thanks for all the input guys, much appreciated.

Hi fubag

If your lenses are -8.00D and -9.00D then they will be relatively thinner in the centre, so the Dk value will in fact probably be better than that quoted at -3.00D.

However, as you said, a Dk of 19 these days is poor and a move to Biofinity should be a big improvement in health and comfort.

The redness/discomfort could also be due to an adverse reaction to one of the solutions you are using. What are you using at present? Clear Care (single step peroxide system) is generally recommended if there is a suspicion of contact lens solution allergies, as Clear Care does not contain any preservatives.

I see what you mean fubag. It would be a drag to keep putting drops in your eyes every five minutes all day long. I can think of many things I'd rather be doing, and I'm sure you could too.
Maybe you could continue with the eye drops and over the course of a few days, maybe you'll find that you can go a little longer each day between each treatments. Do you think that's worth a try?

That sounds like a reasonable course of action. I wonder how fubag will respond?

guys thanks for the inputs,

i just tried them on today. after struggling like 10 mins with my left eye finally got it in =D

OMG THEY ARE A BLESSING TO MY EYES!

They feel so much more comfortable and I dont know if I am dreaming but it feels like I can feel waves of air passing right through my contacts touching my cornea, lol. ill update later on the redness issue, but so far I have no complaints, these are 100000 times better than biomedics torics!

gracias to this forum for its existence!!

ok so after using them for a couple of days i def see an improvement in redness, but in terms of comfort, not so much, after a while the plastic feeling comes back...

also almost had a panic attack removing my right lens out, took me almost 12 tries until finally I could pinch it out, by then my whole eye was bloodshot red...

i just guess i cant be a regular contact user, back to glasses for the majority of the time

Hi. If you're still wanting to try contacts, or have some left from your purchase, try using a peroxide based solution. Problems like this are often caused by the cleaning ingredient in the multi-purpose solution drying out the eye itself. The fact that they were fine for the first few days before the dryness issues returned would point in that direction.

Is that Clear Care solution I keep hearing about in this forum peroxide based?

The Clear Care website says "With the exceptional cleaning action of hydrogen peroxide, Clear Care cleans and disinfects lenses like no multi-purpose solution can" so, yeah.

That doesn't sound biased, does it?

Yes, as Sexynerd says it's 3% hydrogen peroxide in a saline solution. When the peroxide is neutralised after 6 hours by the platinum/palladium catalyst, you are left with just a saline solution. There are no preservatives in the Clear Care, so that's why it is popularly recommended for people who may have allergies or sensitivities to contact lens solutions.

Yup. Clear Care is very popular around these parts.

i just guess i cant be a regular contact user, back to glasses for the majority of the time
What's new fubag? Have you taken a few days to relax and tried the contacts again? Sometimes you just need a little time off.

Unhappy

ya thanks for the input guys

i have started college again, final year wooo

haven't been wearing contacts much these days but when I do the redness issue that I mentioned at the beginning of the post returns quite prominently within 3-4 hours...

if im reading on the laptop, or even reading a book (staring down) it seems that the redness picks up faster...

i dont really understand what the issue is, most of my friends have torics and they seem fine, I am starting to suspect it is the fact that my Rx is so high -9 and -8 that has something to do with the redness being developed outside near the contact lens itself...but alas I am unable to visit an optician nearby as my doctor is back in buffalo and i am 440 miles away at college...guess i am stuck with these torics til winter break

I'm sorry about that fubag.

When I was in college, there was a medical center right there on campus. Is there some place on or near campus were students can go for contact lenses? I'm sure there are tons of your classmates who don't just wait until the semester's over to see an eye doctor, aren't there?

Hello fubag

I don't think you should wear your lenses intensively to desensitise them. RGP lenses need to have the eyes desensitised to make them wearable but you would do that gradually, starting with 2 hours wear/day and building up an hour or two/day extra. I doubt that is necessary with soft lenses.

I feel that maybe you have some minor allergy to one of the lens solutions you are using, or alternatively some environmental allergy (pollen, dust mites, wood dust, etc).

So, you are wearing Biofinity toric lenses, which initially feel very good, but after a few hours, your eyes become red.

You switched to Clear Care, which is preservative free.

Are you still using some sort of eye drops? Maybe there could be a problem with some ingredient there? Have you tried an alternative make of eye drop?

When did the redness start? It was with the original Biomedic Torics - right?

What happens if you stop wearing the contact lenses and stick to the spectacles for a week or two? Does the redness go away or is it still a problem?

You are a student whose home is in Buffalo. Did you wear the lenses in Buffalo and was there a redness problem there?

I am trying to pin point the factor(s) which may be causing the redness. Particularly if the redness is associated with your student residence rather than your home residence.

actually i am not on Clear Care, but on Renu Fresh. The redness existed in Buffalo, NY too. I stopped using eye drops completely since they weren't a huge help. The redness does go away if I stop wearing my contacts after 2-3 days. The redness existed with Biomedic Torics as well as Biofinity Torics, both brands are giving me similar results. Thanks for your help!

Hi fubag. Are you still having redness with your Biomedic Torics?

On the one hand, judging by the picture at the top of this thread, your eyes don't look all that red to me. On the other hand, if it's been about three months and you're still not comfortable in the Biomedic Torics, something needs to be done. You say that you've also tried Biofinity torics too, and the redness was still present. Maybe you need to try another brand, or maybe see a different doctor. You might find one that has some radical new ideas to help people in situations similar to yours. Let us know what you decide, okay?

OK, thanks for the clarification.

So maybe the environmental allergy can be ruled out if the problem was there in both Buffalo and in your student location.

Redness goes away when you stop wearing contact lenses. Problem is contact lens or solution related.

Redness with both Biofinity & Biomedic Torics. Unlikely the lenses are the problem.

You don't use eye drops any more.

Conclusion is you have an adverse reaction to the solution (one of the components in it, which is quite common).

I would suggest you stop with the Renu Fresh and try Clear Care peroxide preservative free disinfection/cleaning solution for a few weeks.

I've heard a lot of good things about Clear Care, fubag. I have high hopes that it will do the trick. I wish you all the best.

Good to read about using the Clear Care solution!! I've had the same problem with my eyes getting really red, much like fubag when I wear my contacts for more than about 5-6 hours. I used to wear them constantly without any problem, then at some point my eyes started getting red with them and I've only worn them intermittently for the last 4 or 5 years. If simply changing the solution will fix it I will be VERY pleased.

Hello nexis777,

It's a process of elimination, but a surprising number of problems with contact lens comfort is linked to the contact lens solution, or at least the preservatives in these solutions.

Clear Care really is the defacto standard to try if there is a suspicion of contact lens allergies through the solutions.

I've heard Clear Care being mentioned in this forum a lot, and I think it's all positive. Seems as though everybody likes it.

Yes, I just started wearing the Biofinity lenses (Wed of this week ) and, though I haven't yet experienced redness with them, as I did with my previous lenses, I'd rather not start, kwim?

Bought the new solution today, I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks nexis777, and thanks for introducing me to the Internet abbreviation "kwim." That stands for "Know What I Mean," right?

Yep, kwim is "Know What I Mean".

I'm definitely liking the new solution just fine, and I have not, as yet, experienced any redness with these contacts/solution whatsoever. That makes me very happy

When you say "new solution" do you mean Clear Care?

I think the redness is caused from the lenses since I'm having a similar issue. I use Optifree-Replenish and have for several years. Unfortunately, since using biofinity toric lenses my eyes are a total mess and I've been unable to wear lenses for several months! And, my prescription is all messed up as well. I am currently on a steroid to reduce the swelling in my cornea and hopefully, my sight will return to normal. Apparently, I'm allergic to the silicone in the biofinity lenses. I had an abnormal amount of mucous in my eye as well as it being all crusty around the outer eye with swelling in the morning. It has taken weeks to alleviate these conditions.

Hi Joanne. Sorry about the trouble you had with your contacts. Has your doctor suggested a different brand of contact lens? I was hoping to give you some specific brands, but when I searched for "hydrogel toric" I still got a ton of results for silicone hydrogel toric lenses, and you said you reacted rather strongly to the silicone of the Biofinity lenses. Hopefully someone else can be more helpful to you. Keep in touch.

Hi, I wore proclear previously with no problem and I'm hoping I can return to wearing them. At present, my vision is still not clear so I'm very concerned. My next appointment is March 3 and I have my fingers crossed.

Were the Proclear lenses that you wore before toric? If not, there is a such thing as Proclear Toric contact lenses. http://www.lens.com/contact-lenses/lens393.asp

I wore proclear toric in the past with no problems but my doctor thought the biofinity were going to be more comfortable and I would be a good candidate for them. Wrong!

Everybody's different. I used to wear Proclear, but could never wear them all day. With the Biofinity, I can go all day and never notice it. I've slept in it once, and that was far more comfortable the next morning than any extended wear lens I'd ever worn in the past (years ago).

Thanks for telling us what you think of Biofinity lenses, Gary. I've read a lot of good things on this forum about Biofinity.
