Acuvue Oasys

That's what I used too. But I hated wearing them. Maybe I didn't wear them long enough to get used to them.. But my eyes were always itchy and dry and I would always lose a contact somehow.

 I used to wear daily's IMO those were the best...expensive though! I find the Oasys get dirty  and start to irritate my eyes if I wear them for long periods before the 2 weeks is up. I actually don't want to wear them more than a week. But I dont really get out much these days, cept for a few hours here and there so it's not a huge issue right now. I think I will look into a new brand down the line.

I want to try contacts again... But I'm scared to! and I don't think DH wants to spend the extra money since my glasses do the job just fine! Lol

Acuvue with hydraclear.

I'm think I'm going to switch to the one you can sleep in. I'm horrible about taking mine out at night.

I have the exact same issue with them. My next appointment is on Friday, and I will ask the doctor for other contact lenses. It is driving me nuts!

Well you can always wear them irregularly. It can get pricey when you have to keep replacing them....but anyway I think irregular wear is better for the health of your eyes anyway. I know people that have messed up their eyes from wearing contacts too much!

I have astigmatism so Idk if that affects which brand I can get... But I think the kind you change daily would be better for me.

Coopervision Biofinity torics. I prefer contacts to glasses! I feel glasses are so restrictive to viewing, whereas contacts aren't, I don't have to move my head to look up a little etc.
