I'm partial to Acuvue Moist--they're much more comfortable than Focus Dailies

Welcome, DrFeelgood. I heard a song about you . . .

How did you manage to buy "a variety of daily disposable contacts"? Did you get multiple prescriptions from your doctor?

Doctors (US) generally give patients all the trial lenses needed to evaluate what brand and what parameters are best. You don't even need the trail lens coupon offered by most lens companies.

J&J TruEye is the only silicon hydrogel lens currently marketed for daily disposable use. Review that lens with your eye doctor.

Are you sure?
I'm currently using Sauflon Clariti 1-Day - a silicone hydrogel lens marketed for disposable use (different from TruEye as has a higher water content 58% v 46%) - I chose them over Acuvue Moist as they were far more comfortable for a long day and no sting when they go it.

Is the Sauflon lens marketed in the US? If so I was mistaken. If not I didn't properly qualify my post. Either way I'm sorry.

It's easy to forget different contact lenses are marketed in different countries. Different countries have different requirements regarding a doctors script. Sometimes the identical lens is marketed with different care instructions in different countries.

Check out Daysoft contact lens. Their new Silk contact lenses are very comfortable, and inexpensive. Two boxes of 32 lens cost $17.76 Ppd. Google: Daysoft, check them out.

I don't think Daysoft lenses are FDA approved in the US. They claim they won't sell you lenses without a valid prescription. A valid prescription (US) requires specifying the exact brand of lens as well as the parameters. The only exception (substitution is allowed) is when the mfg markets the identical lens under different (private label) brands.

You can still buy Daysoft lenses online without a prescription, many countries do not require a prescription for contact lenses
You could always buy a test box and then bring them in to your optometrist so he can verify that they are a good choice for your eyes before you buy a years supply

FDA regs pertain to products sold IN the US. Americans can buy from other countries though. The reason for non FDA approval is not medical, but how the product is sold. In the US manufacturers may not sell direct to consumers. The Daysoft reference to a prescription is for ANY contact prescription, not just their product. They don't want to sell contacts to people who have not been prescribed and fitted for them. Yes, try a sample order, and have your Dr. check them out. I have recommended them to several, all like them, and most have had their Dr. check them out, and none have received any negative feedback from their doctor. They are safe, and have international medical approval, including UK, most of Europe, and Canada.
