I have been wearing contacts for about a year now and over the past couple of months I have been suffering with eye infections. Previous to this, I had been wearing weekly disposable contact lenses and decided I would be better to change to daily disposable lenses to clear up my eye infection and to be honest, I quite like using the daily lenses.
About Johnson & Johnson 1 day Acuvue Lenses 1 day Acuvue daily disposable contact lenses are made by Johnson & Johnson. As these lenses are only worn on a daily basis, they give you a fresh start every day with a new, clean pair of lenses resulting in the healthiest and most convenient way to wear your contact lenses. These lenses also contain UV Blocking and are the only lenses on the market that offer this. The one day acuvue lenses have a 58% water content so they feel very natural to wear as they sit very comfortably in your eyes. These lenses are classed as soft lenses which means they are extremely thin and are made from materials that allow oxygen to pass through them and reach the eye surface, meaning your eyes are left to feel as natural as possible while wearing the lenses.
Packaging These contacts come in boxes of 30, which means you have 15 pairs of contacts. You can also buy them a box at a time which would mean you would get a box of 30 lenses for your right eye, and 30 for your left, meaning they would last you a month. The contact lenses come in a small plastic pod which have saline solution inside which the contact sits in. The pod is sealed and you only open it when you intend on putting the lenses into your eye.
Price When I buy these from my optician, they cost me a lot more than the price I pay online. I have recently started buying my contacts online from http://www.contactforlenses.com where they cost me £13.99 per box of 30 lenses which is fairly reasonable.
The Lenses Acuvue lenses are slightly tinted which I love as it means they are much easier to handle as you can actually see them. With my weekly disposables, because they are clear, it is always difficult to get them out of the solution as it is hard to see them with them being the same colour as the solution. The lenses also have 123 printed on the lense which enables you to tell with a quick glance whether the lenses are the correct way around. This again is another advantage to these as with the weekly disposables, you have to look at the lense and sort of guess which way round it goes (which can be kind of hard considering I cant see much without my contacts in. Personally I quite like the daily disposables. When I first decided to wear contacts, I liked the idea of the weekly disposable as it seemed to fit in better with my lifestyle - pop the lense in, and a week later, take it back out and dispose of it. However, it didn't quite work like that, the weekly lenses can get grimy which means you have to take them out and clean them and to be honest they are a lot more maintenance than they 1st seemed.
Summary I would highly recommend these lenses, they are relatively cheap and made by a trusted brand. They are comfortable to wear and also have the little added bonus of being tinted and having the 123 printed to ensure you place them on your eye the correct way round. You can get away with sleeping with these lenses in, for example, if you are going for a night out and forget to take them out when you get in, this wont cause any problems, but I do find that the lenses feel quite dry the next day. The other advantage to wearing daily lenses is that you do not need to pay out for contact solutions and contact cases as you do not need to store them overnight as you simply throw them away once you have taken them out.
