Default my purevision 2 HD for astigmatism review

Been looking on the site for a while and thought it was about time I contributed something!

I've tried pretty much all the major toric lenses: Oasys, Air Optix, Biofinity, PureVision and most recently PureVision 2.

I found the Oasys very difficult to handle and they didn't give me very good vision, although in fairness I couldn't get my exact prescription in my right eye, in general I found them very uncomfortable.

The Air Optix were what I had been wearing for a few years, I thought they were extremely comfortable, gave good but not great vision, but my left contact had too much rotation which caused me to try the following lenses recently.

PureVision gave me the best vision, I think they definitely made everything crisper and totally eliminated halos at night but I found them so incredibly uncomfortable that I gave up after a days use.

This led me to Biofinity, easily the most comfortable lenses I've ever worn but unfortunately didn't give me great vision and the halos at night were very bad.

Last week I got a trial of the new PureVision 2 HD and I have to say I think they're brilliant! Easily the best vision I've ever had from a lens, everything seems incredibly sharp and crisp, with absolutely no halos at night They definitely aren't as comfortable as Air Optix or Biofinity but they're not uncomfortable in any way and have great stability, about to go and buy a 6 month supply!

Any advice on solution for these lenses? I've been using PureMoist for the trial lenses but was thinking of switching back to Solo Care Aqua, anyone have any opinions on the Solo Care? Doesn't seem to be one of the more mentioned solutions..

Clearcare is thebest product to maintain silicone hydrogels because it keeps the stubborn lipids off these type of lenses.

thanks for the advice, I've already got clear care but i don't suffer from much protein build up so only use it infrequently. I've tried both the pure moist and solo care aqua and found the solo care much better, seems to have made the contacts much softer and comfortable in my eye

Bausch and Lomb biotrue is gentle and makes lenses super comfortable.

Clearcare or ultrasept(some countries oxysept) are two fantastic peroxide systems out there keeping lipid deposits off lenses.And are also allergy free.

Adding a daily cleaner with a saline rinse combined with a weekly enzyme is awesome for yearly lenses or lenses lasting longer than a month.

I have a very good experience with AMO Revitalens!

Btw. I tried both (AirOptix vs Purevision 2HD for astigmatism) side by side for a month. In my opinion there is no difference. DK value for the AirOptix is better than for the Purevision.
I wear Purevision since 10 years or so but the new 2HD are a bit a disappointment. They are not as good as I expect.

i actually stopped using the purevision 2 as i found them to become very blurry about about 10-12 hours use and found them very uncomfortable and gritty after a few days use.

currently back using the air optix and the biofinity torics as i can sleep in them no problem.

Is there a big difference between wearing AirOptix and Biofinity?
If I remember correctly, the Biofinity have some of the highest oxygen permeability (DK)?

dk/t for biofinity is 116 whereas the air optix is 108, so not a great deal between them.

i found the biofinity great for 14 days but ive had them in for 21 days now and they don't feel good at all which is why i've went and ordered some air optix again.

i find the air optix much easier to handle, especially when it comes to removing the lens from my eye so think I'll stick with them as i was also able to comfortably keep them in for longer.

Default Which way up?

Hi there
I am giving purevision 2 lenses for astigmatism a try, but have one question - which way up should I put them in?! All other brand lenses I have used have clear markings to show you where the bottom of the lens is but these seem to have a line and a letter on both top and bottom, which one is which? It is also not easy to tell when they are inside out but think I have them in correctly The lens material for these is not as soft as any other soft lenses I have used and they seem drier.
Thanks for your help.

I found this in another post. I hope it helps. " . . . you can use that as an inversion mark. This sounds complicated, but...

If you hold the lens with the hashes down and the conVEX side towards you, the "H7" should be readable and the 7 will not be backwards."

Thank you. They seem to have made it more complicated than other lenses I've used!
