I work in IT, so I spend most of my days staring at a computer screen, when I do wear my lenses at work normally I find they get very uncomfortable by about 3pm, and I end up taking them out. These however, are the most comfortable lenses I've tried yet, have had them in before work still have them in now at 9:30pm. Not experienced any misshaped lenses yet, but this is only my second day wearing them.
I always find contacts a bit uncomfortable as I have dry eyes - especially in London on the tube! Although I found these a bit hard to get in at first as they are flimsier, I`ve found using eye drops first works fantastically. These are much more comfortable to wear for longer, don`t seem to dry out as much, even on the tube and several times I have been surprised when I remember I`m wearing them, as opposed to usual lenses that I can always feel.
They`re not perfect yet, but a big leap forward for me in comfort. I will probably wear every day instead of 3 or 4 times per week. Can be tricky to get in, and I`d agree with others that some of them are miss - shapen, which I`ve only realised after trying to get them in comfortably for 5 mins! I would recommend trying them. For me, price not that significant as increase in product performance great, and if they`re better for your eyes, then even better.
BEST lenses ive ever used,try em u will see,top notch 100 % i cant fault them,they may cost more but you get what you pay for,if you spend less on alcohol and holidays then you will be able to afford them !,you only get 1 set of eyes so respect them,use also to prewet and if they get little dry as the day goes on use refresh eyedrops they are fantastic.
The lenses are very flimsy, so can deform easily and be quite uncomfortable. They also adhere worse to the eye than others I`ve tried, i.e. Focus Dailies, Purevision Toric etc. So you have to push them more, and that increases the likelihood of deformation.
Wouldn`t get these again, will try something else.
I actually got these lenses because I was left with no choice, I had ulcers in my eyes due to the lack of oxygen from other lenses but this was actually due to the size of my irises which are aparently larger than normal, these lenses move about more because they actually fit, but I`m wondering why other people are using them if they don`t fit their eyes? there are loads of other products out there in smaller diameters that are just as good quality but cheaper surely?
And on the comments above, I have also found that there are a few misshapen lenses in the box as well which is a shame since they are almost �1 per lense!
Firstly I must say that Acuvue are without a doubt one of the best manufacturers of contact lenses around, over the years I have tried many different manufacturers and I always return to Acuvue Moists.
The Tru-Eye lenses are by no means bad, they are very comfortable to wear, but the Moists are still a better lens if you want long last comfort and Moist feeling eyes.
Whilst wearing these lenses I have noticed a build up of Rheum (sleep) in the eyes which becomes more prominent as the day progresses and becomes more irritable, they basically become sticky. They are also a more rubbery lense than the Moist. Remove a moist lens from your eye and let it dry out, you`ll find it can be easily crumbled to dust. Let a Tru-Eye lens dry out and it just becomes like a piece of tough polythene, in my mind a less porous lense
Stick with the Acuvue Moist Lenses.
I`d been recommended TruEyes by my optician, as I`m a fairly heavy wearer of contact lenses (approx 10 hours a day, seven days a week), and these are supposed to allow a lot more oxygen into your eye than standard disposable lenses. However, I`ve found I just cannot wear these lenses at all.
Immediately after inserting them, I get a burning feeling in my eyes, as though I have soap in them, and my eyes become red and bloodshot. This calms down over time, but my eyes then feel very dry and uncomforable for the rest of the day. I`m not sure if it`s the lenses themselves or the solution they`re stored in that causes this reaction, but I just cannot wear them.
I`ve used Focus Dailies and Acuvue Moist and would strongly recommend these over the TruEyes, particularly when you consider the significant price premium you have to pay for them.
Having just shifted to these lenses I have found them to be far easier on my eyes as they are very sensitive and dry out very easily. I am very interested to read the comments re dodgy lenses in the packs as I too had one of these but figured i must have done something to it somehow! I was really grateful to learn that I can get them replaced in the future. Thank you for this information :)
I`ve used contact lenses for many years now, and am always looking for better lenses for my eyes. I sit by the computer all day at work and try to make sure I don`t strain my eyes more than I have to. So when I saw these, they sounded good, and I thought I`d give them a go!
Sadly, I have to say these lenses are by far the worst I`ve tried. I have moderately dry eyes, but with these I would put them in at 8 am and by 4 pm I`d feel like I wanted to scratch my eyes out! They feel fine when I first put them in, but within a few hours they`re uncomfortable and after 8 hours I just can`t take it any more.
Also, I`ve never seen so many deformed lenses in a pack as I have with these. Several of them were mis-shaped and bulgy, and I had to throw away a few because they just wouldn`t sit comfortably on the eye.
I did a little experiment where I put the TruEye in one eye, and my normal lense (Acuvue Moist) in the other, and there was a huge difference. Funnily enough, the eye with TruEye in was the redder looking, and by far the most uncomfortable.
Thankfully I only bought two packs of these so have nearly finished them. I won`t be buying them ever again! It`s back to Acuvue Moist for me!
I don`t normally leave reviews, but these are so bad I just had to. Save your money and your eyes, people!
I have sensitive and dry eyes so normally I don`t wear contact lenses at all. On occasions when I do wear contacts I use Acuvue Moist. I was very happy with them although my eyes would only bear them for about 6 hours. I bought Acuvue TruEye hoping the comfort would be much better but I can`t cope with them at all. I insert them and they are feeling scratchy straight away! I can not wear these at all :-( Going back to Moist.
Ive been waering contact lenses for years now, and have always struggled due to having dry eyes. i tries these contacts and they are good, but probably no better than Accuvue Moist and the Tru eyes tear so easily just by putting them in your eyes, so im going back to my normal ones!
While the lenses are very comfy to wear and my eyes are alot more comfortable throughout the day has anyone else found that they often have at least one misshaped lens in the box? I`ve not experienced it with any other lenses I`ve tried and find it a bit annoying considering I`m paying a premium and regularly throwing away around 3 lenses from each pack.
After consideration of my options and a couple of posts in the forum to get some (very helpful!) answers to questions I had, I splashed out in some Acuvue Trueye lenses.
I am pleased to say that they are much more comfy than my old lenses!
As per the anonymous post a little earlier, I can wear them for longer with less discomfort as they seem to retain moisture better, and the blood vessels in my eyes are a lot less prominent at the end of the day so clearly they are not having to work so hard to deliver oxygen to my eye tissue, so the higher oxygen transmission is a good thing!
I would definitely recommend these, they are a marked improvement over older lenses in my opinion, even the high water content versions.
I`ve gone from only being able to wear lenses for about 12 hours before my eyes dry out and they start to cause me pain, and never more than two days in a row, to being able to wear them for 16 hours and still have them comfortable when I`m taking them out. My eyes no longer hurt or dry out anywhere near as much, and I`ve even found myself going to push my glasses up my nose by mistake!
The only thing I think I would change is to offer an alternative diameter of them, as 14.2 feels a little large for my eyes and a smaller version (13.8?) would fit better. They could perhaps also be a little cheaper, but I think I would rather pay a little bit more for the extra comfort they offer. (Hopefully they will come down in price and have more size options as more companies start offering silicon lenses!)
Overall a definite thumbs up from me. Give them a go, I don`t think you`ll be disappointed!
Sadly, unlike most of the other people here I�ve actually been a little disappointed with these lenses. They�re certainly not bad lenses or particularly uncomfortable but I would say that upon insertion (which is occasionally fiddly due to their size) they are less moist than the cheaper Acuvue Moist lenses. True, they don�t degrade in their moisture throughout the day as badly but for the price and the reviews � I was expecting better.
Very good lenses, I felt the difference as soon as I put them in. I have normally stuck to the Focus Dailies which aren`t too bad but these are much more comfortable especially if you suffer a bit from dry eyes.
I could quite easily wear these all day if needed. Should have given them 4 stars because they are a bit pricey, but darn it they are so good!
I have sensitive eyes that dry out easily, have tried loads of different types of lens over the past 8 years and have never found a pair I could wear comfortably. I`d usually end up taking them out mid way through the day. Then I tried TruEye and can absolutely say they are worth every penny! They are so comfortable I put them in at 7 am and still can`t even feel them at 11 pm. Not only are they so comfortable I can`t feel them, they are made to allow for longer wear and let more air through than most lenses; the whites of my eyes are so much brighter than they`ve been in years and i`ve only been using them a month! I`m shocked at the effect the cheaper types had on the brightness of my eyes and will never go back. About time a decent lens came on the market!
