Do you wear contact lenses? type?

Hi friends

I have been wearing disposable contact lenses since 1999.

I normally use disposable 30 day (1 month) (UK made).

Now I have been using disposable 1 day (chinese made).


Do you feel comfortable with them? Which type do you use?

What about the "new" hydrogen contact lenses? Do you have used them?

Thanks!

I wear 30 day disposables. Usually either Acuvue Oasis or Air Optix Aqua. They're really comfy and I never have any issue.

My solution is also Optifree.

I only wear daily disposables for the comfort and hygiene. Specifically Acuvue but now AcuVue TruEye. Best darn lenses in my opinion. I can wear them all day and push late into the night with comfort.

I used to wear them but I was not good at putting them on so I gave up.

I use CIBA Dailies AquaComfort Plus. Made in USA. They are expensive but I have other eye problems so I am not willing to take any chances.
