As 1 Day Acuvue Moist is a daily disposable contact lens, they are not recommended or designed for multiple wear. they are designed to be worn once to provide a fresh clean lens every day and prevent protein build up and reduce eye infections. Daily lenses are also thinner than 2 weekly or monthly lenses and so are not as robust to withstand daily cleaning and storing.

My eyes don't get on with most contact lenses, so I use them mainly for outdoor use. They are comfortable to wear all day. They occasionally 'lift' slightly in strong winds but I very rarely lose one and this includes cycling, ski-ing and windsurfing! Quality is good and you get hardly any out of box failures.
I am very short sighted. I wear my lenses for the vast majority of the day, as wearing glasses isn't really feasible. These lenses are excellent, and comfortable from 7am to 11pm. My optician recommends them also. I have been wearing them for a few years now and would say they are the upper end of the contact lens market. I'd recommend them.
I reviewed these same lenses a while ago and criticized how bad they were, but after being forced to switch from monthly to daily lenses, I originally switched to a different type of Acuvue lenses (i.e. not the Moist but the Advance). When these was discontinued I again was forced to retry this lense as it was the only alternative, but I am happy to say I have been wearing these for over a year and they are much much better than they used to be.
I tried these 'moist'ones as my eyes tend to be rather dry when wearing lenses. Yes, they are a bit delicate, but i personally have not had much problem with them.
Tip : once on your finger - hold them up to the light and look out for the '123' on the rim of the lense - this shows it's the right way round as these do easily flip.
I usually wear them when going out or during the summer when wearing sunglasses, but have wore them all day & have been ok.
Ordered Friday morning, received the following morning. Now that is what I call service. As for Acuvue Moist? Well, I've been using them since I can't remember. Yes, occasionally a bit fiddly but I work in an office environment so my eyes often dry out. These fit the bill perfectly.
