Thread: Which daily lens do you wear and why?

  1. #1

    Default Which daily lens do you wear and why?

    What daily lens do you wear and why? Are there any good ones for dry eye? Anyone went from Air Optix Aqua to a daily lens, if so, why did you switch? Do they tear easily? Thanks, have an exam in a month and was thinking of asking for a trial since the allergies are really bad this year.

    The "other" silicone hydrogel lens is acuvue trueye (narafilcon A) but i still have the issue with lenses getting coated to fast.I have dry eyes and my eyes do not like the hydraclear component and lenses get gucked up.

    I wear rgp lenses daily and for me the best success with soft lenses CB Air optix aqua. I wear them for spord.ts and gives me the least dryness issues out of ALL the soft lenses i have tried.

    Proclear, extreme h20, acuvue oasys and all these lenses dried out.

    Proclear, extreme h20, acuvue oasys, trueye and biofinity all dried out and became extremely uncomfortable as the day progressed to evening.

    Though I'm certainly a bit biased here, there are a few things about Clearlab's Fresh that I find make it pretty spectacular:

    1) The biocompatible nature of hioxifilcon A means that your lenses are constantly being moisturized by your own natural tears, allowing for longer wear times, as it takes longer for your lenses to dry out.

    2) Our entire patent is based around the fact that our lenses change shape minimally as they dry, again due to hioxifilcon A. This means that even when your lenses are dry, your vision will be minimally impacted and the fit will remain fairly constant as compared to competing lenses.

    3) The spin cast design technique employed in the manufacture of Fresh lenses allows for 70% less water and plastic use than is typically employed in lens manufacture. While there will always be waste when it comes to daily lenses, due to packaging, our Fresh lens goes a long way towards mitigating that problem.

    4) The edges on the Fresh daily lens are very smooth, again due to the spin casting, meaning less irritation for your eyes.

    **ON EDIT** 5) International contact lens standards allow lenses to differ from their stated prescription by up to plus or minus .25 (a quarter of a diopter). This means that when you receive a lens that has a stated prescription of -1.50, the actual power of the individual lens could range anywhere from -1.25 to -1.75. At Clearlab, on the other hand, we only allow our lenses to differ from their stated prescription by .125 (an eighth of a diopter). Therefore, a lens with a stated prescription of -1.50 will only range from -1.475 to -1.625; not perfect, but better. This means that you have a better guarantee of more closely matching your prescription with a Clearlab lens than you do with other leading brands.

    Yes, I realize I'm hardly an unbiased observer here, and I don't try to claim to be one. That said, these are the advantages of the Fresh daily, and I can vouch for them myself.

    Thanks for all the facts. Can you also tell how much oxygen your colored circle lenses let through?

    The website says the oxygen permeability is "25.38 x 10 (-11) (cm2/S)(mlo2/ml.mn Hg)."

    That doesn't help me a bit. How about you?
    Not only is that a long and complicated formula, but I couldn't just copy and paste it either. I had to keep switching back to the page to type it out. Not the best website I've seen.

    The DK value is around 9, but as I've posted elsewhere, DK is a pretty meaningless number. I'm awaiting reply from our engineers on the DK/t for our Clearcolors, and will inform the board as soon as I have more information.

    I'm sorry about our website; the US branch of our company is still quite small and it's a work in progress. We're looking on dramatically overhauling and improving it over the next few months (and I'll make sure that DK and DK/t values are easier to find).

    Going back to the original question, I wear Focus Dailies. Why? My optician recommended them, I tried them, I find them very comfortable and I can see very well with them. I haven't tried many others, but those I have tried haven't been any different that I can tell.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Acuvue moist, because they are comfortable and cheaper than acuvue trueye. lol But of course acuvue tryeye is the MOST comfortable lens I have ever worn. However they are way to expensive.

    So the score at the half is Acuvue Moist Dailies 2, Air Optix Aqua 1, Clearlab Fresh 1, and Focus Dailies 1.

    I generally wear rgp lenses. However, I do play a few contact sports and reg gym workouts. In these situations can chance rgp lenses popping out from wiping preservation from the face. I also travel and one day soft lenses are more convenient.

    I like the acuvue tru eye one days. And aparantly there are two lens materials ( a and b) with acuvue trueye's I wear the one with higher dk.

    One big feature is No solution to stock up on.


    Prior to switching to rgp lenses due to eye allergies, mild blepharitis, dry eyes due to meds, I was wearing Ciba vision air Optix Aqua soft monthly lenses.

    Tried a lot of soft lenses and the three most comfortable for me was pro clear, frequency, air Optix Aqua, and trueye.

    Hassle free lens wear with no solutions to buy is why I opted for acuvue trueye one days.

    Acuvue Moist. Compared to TrueEye (the only two I’ve tried), I find them more comfortable and my vision is better - sharper and the contacts do not seem to move when I blink) than TrueEye and my vision (my prescription is -1.75 in both eyes).

    Hi Deborah. I'm not sure whom you're trying to message. This is just an online forum for random people to share experiences and advice. If you're looking to buy Breathables XW, you can do a simple Google search to find online retailers who sell them. I found these two straight away:

    http://www.americasbest.com/shop/contact-lenses-530/sofmed-breathables-xw

    http://contacts.eyeglassworld.com/displaylens.asp?LensID=530

    I hope that helps.

    I've tried softlens and I like them for a while, I used to wear lenses every day. But I switched to proclear and it's been getting better for me. I'm still looking at some more colored lenses for myself.

    First and foremost you need to visit a specialist to get a consultation. As for my experience, I should say that I spent too much time on searching for perfect variant. But the problem is when you find good one, there are so many factors, which can spoil everything in my case it was moving to another country. I used to wear Acuvue Moist before, but then started to feel discofort.
    I visited a specialist and he advised me to try UltraClear SuperClean. I found them at https://www.specsavers.co.uk . Now it's the third month I use them and I'm totally satisfied.
