I’ve worn this brand of lenses for 10 years now. I’ve always been on their fortnightly lenses with no incident until I started wearing Acuvue Oasys.
You would think more expensive + newer = better. Not in this case.
I wasn’t sure whether it was the lenses when my eyes would get very irritated. I don’t really dare to wear this while I have a nap as there would be times when my eyes would get really red and itchy. It got so bad my eye balls would bulge.
After a week or so, it starts getting very uncomfortable and sometimes I can’t even really put it on, my eye balls would reject them and all it feels like some thing is lodged in my eye.
I also found myself rubbing my eyes a lot.
None of the above ever happened to me before with Acuvue 2 or Advance.
I went to the optometrist as the sight on my left eye was deteriorating, I thought my power had increased. I was referred to the eye specialist who told me that I had developed an eye infection, something to do with a lot of white dots and tears in my cornea. 4 mths later, 3 visits and many prescription eye drops later, I apparently have full vision again.
I purchased 2 boxes of Acuvue tru eye dailies which are very comfortable to replace Oasys. Sadly, I can’t find Acuvue Advance anywhere. The Tru Eye dailies are very expensive though, the cheapest you can get them for are at RM230 for 2 boxes (less if you get 6 boxes).
I just think to myself, how do people afford to pay over $200 of their salary for contact lenses alone?
Luckily I did a bit of digging around and saw this! HALLELUJAH! Acuvue Advance Plus I hope to replace that good for nothing Oasys lenses. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET THIS BE THE SOLUTION I NEED. I can’t wait for it to arrive in Malaysia (I’m guessing it’ll take at least a year) so I’m going to order them from the US and hope it’s as good or even better than Acuvue Advance. Stay tuned.
