1 Day Acuvue Moist is very popular for many reasons -
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.
No, 1 Day Acuvue Moist does not contain silicone, it provides long lasting comfort and moisture by using Etafilcon A with Lacreon, if you are looking for a Johnson and Johnson daily contact lens with silicone hydrogel then checkout 1Day Acuvue Trueye.

Recently, Acuvue stopped making my usual contact lenses so I had to find an alternative. I decided to go with the same company and try out these lenses, despite the less than favourable reviews.
I found them to be as good as, if not better, than my previous type of lenses. I suffer from dry eyes, and no contact lenses don't not irritate them a bit but they were quite comfortable with these lenses.
They are thinner, but I find this means they are much easier to insert into my eye.
I can wear these for 8 hours or more without my eyes getting too irritable.
Overall, I'm pleased with them and am sticking with them.
When I wear glasses, I never suffer from dry eyes. A number of ophthalmologists have said to me they have no objections to me wearing contact lenses. However, once I have contacts in, after 1-2 hours my eyes feel dry and itchy; I can really feel them in my eyes. I've tried different non-moist monthlies & dailies, but the result was all the same. Acuvue Moist are the only ones that are really different. I don't feel them in my eyes for several hours and can thus wear them for much longer than any other contacts. Will definitely keep using them.
These lenses are great - can`t feel them on the eye, they don`t make my eyes red or itchy, I can wear them from early morning to late at night (although not really supposed to!) without problems, they`re just great. I have dry eyes, so notice it really quickly if the lenses are not up to scratch, but these are just perfect for me.
They are quite thin in comparison to some other dailies I`ve tried, but it just means taking a little more care when taking them out of the packet so that they don`t rip.
I`d recommend these to anyone, and in particular those suffering from dry eyes towards the end of the day.
Upgraded to the `Moist` variant a year or two ago and found they gave me better comfort later in the day. I`m -5/5.5 and have astigmatism so I wear them for shorter periods (holidays, sports, dusty DIY work with goggles, etc) rather than full time but find them very easy to use and effective.
I love Acuvue Moist. Im not usually a fan of dailies cause Im a pain for overwearing my contacts but these really have lasting power.
My visions not great in them but thats my own fault cause I should really wear the ones for astigmatism but if you can get away with it....I find these much more comfortable. Barely notice they`re there!
I do find them more difficult to put in than other lenses however, as they tend to flatten out on your fingertip quite easily, instead of going in your eye!
I switched a while ago to the Moist version because I found with the normal version they would stick to my eyeball by the evening and need loosening, plus my eyes would get a little red and dry. So the Moist version allows me to wear longer into the evening. I recommend them despite the higher price over normal versions.
