- Most comfortable contact lenses?
|BAusch and Lomb. Pure Vision I think.Posted 7 years ago
. Supposed to be able to keep them in for 1 month. But opticians advise against. I keep them in for 2 days stints when bivvying etc and no probs. I am however sensitive to solution and use the preservative free bleach type stuff.marsdenmanMember
Most comfortable I found were called Biofinity – on trial from Vision Express.Posted 7 years ago
Still no good for me though – seems I have the driest eyes on the planet so even 'super-moist' ones like Biofinity end up feeling a bit 'sticky' pretty quick for me – doubly not good when they are toric……imnSubscriber
I'm trying Cooper Vision Biofinity monthly disposables, as recommended by optician. They're pretty good, and as I've been told not to wear them in the shower most days are 10hrs wear, with max 16hr. Towards the end of the month they can get itchy. You're not supposed to use for more than a month (it's the time they're open, so you can't wear every other day for 2 months), due to contamination.Posted 7 years agoBimblerMember
After years of wearing GPs I switched over to disposable dailies a couple of years ago. With my prescription almost up I'm looking for a change to something a bit more comfortable, 10-12 hours is all I can stand with dailies. So what would people recommend? With monthlies if you just wanted to wear them for 3 or 4 days a week can you extend the lifetime of the lens?Posted 7 years agomafiafishMember
I've had acuvue true eye and they're great, really thin and easy to put in /remove and are very comfortable. I now have those super cheap ones (day soft) which are nearly as comfortable but are thicker and therefore more noticable and are a begger to et in as they don't want to stay on your finger.Posted 7 years ago
Not bad for 1/3 of the price though.helsMember
AFAIK this is more to do with your eyes than the kind of contact lenses, by that I mean different types will work better with different people, so not much use getting advice here see an proper optician.
I wore my first pair of contact lenses for 5 years, had the early type you took out and cleaned every night. They were expensive then and a huge panic if you dropped one !Posted 7 years agoGTDaveMember
I switched from the Focus Dailies to Acuvue Moist a couple of years ago.
They are really good, and don't dry out easy, as I suffer from one pretty dry eye due to having scratched the cornea on a bike ride.
Currently trialling the Acuvue Tru-Eye. They seem really good too, difference being (apart from cost) that I can leave them in longer without my eyes feeling tired, and they feel a bit more comfortable.Posted 7 years agoCountZeroMember
Having stopped wearing monthly disposables some years back due to redundancy/costs I went back to Specsavers last year cos they only cost me £10/month. Someone mentioned not wearing them in the shower, and extended wear tends to encourage that, but it's rather risky. A chap at work has had a serious eye infection; a cyst caused by a type of amoeba or something like that caught by wearing his lenses in the shower and not taking them out. It's caused him no end of discomfort and pain, so be careful. I won't wear my lenses for longer than around twelve hours, and I only wear them weekends and some evenings.Posted 7 years agoWoodySubscriber
I'm using the Specsavers monthlies – i.e. leave them in for a month.
Me too and they are great as I work shifts and they are super comfy as you would expect from lenses designed to be left in for up to 30 days.
It's not recommended but I've been using the same pair since January. I do take them out to go to bed and put them in cleaning/sterilising solution however and I don't notice any deterioration from week one!Posted 7 years agowheeliecyprusMember
If you want a really comfortable daily contact lens for riding, try Acuvue Moist. I usually wear Acuvue Advance Hydraclear (a 2 weekly lens) but hubby, who only wears lenses occasionally, used to hate using any type of daily lens until I ordered some Acuvue Moist dailies for him to try.. Now he doesn’t even notice he’s wearing them and I use them for overnight stops when you can’t clean or store lenses properly.
There’s more about these ultra comfortable lenses here together with info on sports contacts:Posted 7 years ago

I feel im a bit lax in my eye care after reading this thread.
i use Dollond & Aitchison monthy lenses (take them out overnight), they are 15quid a month. I get 50% discount on specs. Never had any major probs with them. I usually keep an old pair as spares, im good at losing the little criters, or trapping them in the box so one bit goes solid overnight.Posted 7 years agorondo101Member
Acuvue Oasys fortnightlys. I can sleep in them occasionally as required, or change them weekly & wear them for 7 days (6 nights) straight. I’ve found them incredibly comfortable & barely notice them.
They’ve sorted out the dry eyes feeling I was getting from the air con at work and it’s handy to be able to take the occasional nap (i am getting old) without worrying about permanent damage.Posted 7 years ago
