Had a trial of these with my optician and was offered a box of 6 for £81! Nice saving only paying £43 and they are super for me, I have really dry eyes that normally sting and water on an evening and they've helped that and good vision and can read too! Distance vision slightly worse than glasses with these but just a little worth it for all the other benefits! I take them out every night at advice of optician due to dry eyes, high chance of infections leaving them in!
I don't like getting old and ending up needing two pairs of different glasses, because for forty-five years I didn't need any at all. I don't like glasses because I want to see the world, not the frames. I don't like contact lenses which dry up and die in the early evening. I don't like contacts which pull my eye out of shape if I wear them all day, every day, for more than three days. I hate contacts which always seem to be inside out and/or blurred and/or giving double vision. I don't like sticking my fingers in my eyes every morning and evening. I don't like nightly faffing with cleaning solutions. All sorted by these lenses. They work. Near, far, wherever I look, they just work, with a little bit of "routine maintenance" only. Well worth the price, excellent, and just the ticket for this lazy, picky old geezer with dodgy eyesight.
I've worn continuous wear lenses for many years and have had no problems at all until my sight started to further deteriorate. The optician offered me reading glasses to wear on top of my normal lenses... swift change of opticians and the chance to try these.
They did take a bit of getting used to, but i'm happy to say that these are liberating. I no longer need reading glasses (thankfully) and my near and distance sight is great. Add to that the fact that these are continuous wear lenses, and this particular blind bat is a very happy customer.
I do like these, really. It's just that having worn Purevision extended-wear lenses for six years non-stop and then these vari-focals for six months, I find there is a trade-off on long distance clarity.
Occasionally I have swapped to daily softlenses and find that long distance focus is better.
These do not seem to have the same crystal clarity that the non-vari-focals have.
Still a great product though; the most comfortable lenses I have used. They have transformed my life in terms of lens-care. I just flip them out once a week on average for a swift clean or overnight soak to rest my eyes.
I work at a computer most of the day. I also need to read notes and I had to find specs constantly to see anything. As my eyes got worse my contact lenses (daily disposables) just were not up to it. My glasses were also uncomfortable as I have a high prescription (+5.5). At last these lenses have got rid of all that!! They are extremely comfortable to wear and require no cleaning as such. I take them out each night but, if needs be, you can sleep in them and on the odd occasion I have done that, they have been fine. Best of all however is the clarity of vision they afford at all distances. I use the +5.5 with the +1.5 addition. It is truly liberating to be able to see so well again and well worth the money.
