Question Purevision 2 Toric - Do they get better?

Hello,
I've been wearing my PureVision 2 Torics for about 3-4 days. I really want to like them. I find them more stable than some of the other torics I've tried (Proclear, Biofinity), but they definitely fluctuate. When they are right, they are very good, probably 20/20, though I haven't been tested in this pair. Night vision and halos also seem reduced compared to some other torics.

My question is... did you find they were "perfect" right off the bat or did it take a while 1-2 weeks for your eyes to be accustomed to them? Did they settle down and the vision improve? Also, my one of my eyes has been twitching... and I'm not sure if it's related to new contact use, stress, caffeine. This is the first time I've tried to wear contacts in about 3 years.

I am certainly a problem case. I was highly myopic with severe astigamatisim and had LASIK 11 years ago. I didn't need glasses for about 7 years following LASIK, but my vision has degraded to the point that I need glasses or contacts. So... I am desperate and would love to hear your feedback. Before I got LASIK I had to stop wearing contacts because of overwear and dry eye issues. If these don't work, I'll probably have to try SynergEyes.

Right now I am using PureMoist solution, Blink Contacts 2-3 times daily, and ClearCare for cleaning about every other day.

I did a trial for 10 hours. The most uncomfortable contacts I have ever worn. I could feel them in my eyes and the feeling never went away. My right eye got very red and was hurting when I took them out. I do not recommend at all.

I have worn my trial pair for 2 days (for around 16h each day) and had to go back to my Oasys for Astigmatism today. The difference in comfort is insane.

The Purevision 2's had amazingly clear vision, so maybe they earn the silly "HD" label. However, they were so GRIPPY! I've never touched a pair of contacts that seemed to grip onto my hand and finger during cleaning. It felt like rubber in the hand and in the eyes as well.

My eyes were actually sore by the end of each day. I was constantly feeling these lenses in my eyes all day, and each blink was uncomfortable.

My eyes are dry, so maybe that's why the Oasys are a million times more comfortable for me, even though the vision is poorer.
