I recently switched over to Johnson & Johnson 1-Day Acuvue daily contact lenses after getting a bit fed up with my two weekly contact lenses. They just weren''t lasting me two weeks - and it was costing me a fortune! These lenses are much better. It''s so easy just to tear off a couple of lenses from the pack and pop them in. I find these quite easy to put in but I guess it''s different for everyone. Practice makes perfect though. The lenses sit bang in the middle of the eye, and don''t sting at all when you first put them in. Within a couple of minutes you don''t even realise you are wearing them. I mainly use contact lenses when running, so will maybe only use the lenses for a half a day at a time. The odd occasion I''ve left my lenses in for 10 hours or more, I''ve found them quite difficult to get out as the lenses are quite thin - so when your eyes have dried out this can be a bit of a problem. I subscribe to Vision Expresses'' monthly contact lens scheme. I pay 25 pounds a month and get twenty lenses per month as well as all my aftercare appointments included in that price. I do wear these in conjunction with my glasses (not at the same time of course!) and I''ve found quite a happy balance. I try and remove my lenses two hours before going to bed as I''ve heard that this is better for your eyes. Johnson & Johnson 1-Day Acuvue are a very good daily contact lens and I would recommend to all.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have been using these contact lenses for the last 2 years, after being told that I would really struggle to find any that would "fit" my eyes. My eyes are quite round and larger than normal, nothing wrong with them, that is just the way they are. But, the optometrist told me that I would always feel the edge of the contact lens all around my eyes because of their shape.
This is not true about these! They are very easy to put in, and if I roll my eye around a bit with my eyes shut, I can't feel the lens at all. You must make sure you wash your hands before putting them in, as one little piece of dirt, grit or a bit of fluff will really aggravate your eye. I find that if you pull the skin down underneath your eye, look away and then place the lens on your eye itself, it will stick on it straight away. Make sure you have the lens the right way, as well - it should look like a deep bowl, not a saucer. You will know what I mean if you have looked at your contact lens both ways round.
I have worn them for more than 8 hours at a time, and they didn't dry out on me ever. This is even when outside in the wind, and dancing around for hours in the nightclub!
To take them out, again, look away from your hand, pull the skin down underneath your eye and then pinch the bottom bit of the lens and it should come out quite easily. I know this all sounds really graphic about how to do it, but it took me ages to learn!
Because they are one day lenses, you don't have the faff of putting them in solution all the time. They come in individual packets (one lens per section), so you can easily count out how many you need if, say, you are going away for a long weekend, without having to take the whole box.
I have experimented with a variety of contact lenses and glasses but find dailies most suit my lifestyle. They don't take any looking after, I can have pairs in my hand bag, car or at work and they seems to stay moist a long time.
*Price and availability*
They cost about £31.00 for 30 pairs. But the more you buy, the cheaper they become. I often will wear glasses instead of lenses so a month supply can last me about 6 weeks. I buy my lenses from Asda online as they are the cheapest I have seen them and it works out about £14.00 a box.
The contact lenses come in a long blue and white box. Inside are plastic strips with your contact lenses in small plastic cases. The small case has a thin plastic cover which is easy to remove and your contact lens is swimming in saline solution inside the container.
The contact lens is from silicone hydogel which allowing oxygen into the eye while you wear them. This should help your eyes feel fresher for longer.
The contact lenses are moist from the saline solution and read to apply as soon as you open the container. They look slightly blue in water to assist you in finding the lens while in the contact solution.
Once applied and worn, you cannot store the contacts to be worn again and they must be thrown away.
*How to insert them*
Wash your hands thoroughly. Use a clean towel to dry your hands. Try to avoid using tissue as the paper may leave pieces behind. Make sure there is no soap on your hands.
Remove a contact from its case. Remember to check whether it is for your right or left eye. (Unless the prescription is the same.)
Place the contact on your index finger of the hand you will be applying the contact with. You should probably use your dominant hand. Make sure that all the outside edges are face up and none are sticking to your finger. If the rim points out slightly instead of up, the lens is probably inside-out. Inspect lens for rips or tears.
5Use the index finger of your opposite hand to pull up your upper eyelid. Use the middle finger of your dominant hand with the contact on it to pull your lower eyelid down.
Keep your eye open and try not to blink.
Move the contact towards your eye calmly and steadily. It may help to look upwards. Try not to blink or move jerkily. Place the contact on your eye and gently move it so it is centered over your iris. Make sure to let go of the bottom first! Letting go of the top first can sometimes lead to leaving tiny air bubbles against your eye which may sometimes hurt!
Blink slowly, as to not dislodge the contact.
Repeat with the other contact.
The lens is quite fiddly at first to find and get hold of and if you are not careful, they do rip and tear. They are really soft and light, which is fantastic as they feel really comfortable to wear. The downside is that this makes them quite delicate and you need to handle with care. Even now I occasionally put one in and it feels really painful. I take it out and discover a tear in the side. It must be that I spend a while fishing it out that I damage it is. This only really happens in a rush and I just need to take more care.
I wear the lenses for a good 16 hours some days and only after around 14 hours of wear they do start to give my eyes some pain! They are far more comfortable than monthlies. They feel more natural in the eye. Sometimes if I rub my eyes, they do dislodge and come out but I often manage to stick it straight back in. This doesn't happen often and on the whole, they are very reliable.
My boyfriend gets really angry with me when I take them out. This is my favourite time as it means the day is over and I get to go to sleep. It also means I can give my eyes a good rub! I take them out in the bathroom and aim to flick them in the bin. I often miss and in the morning I hear him cursing me as he treads on my crispy contact lens and it shatters under his foot! They do go really firm, like thin plastic so it is painful when you stand on them!
I'd recommend this product. They are soft and gentle and I get away with wearing them for such a long time. They stay really moist and comfortable. They are fairly easy to apply, it is a bit of a chore at 6 am but the fact that once they are in they feel soft and comfortable, makes the task much easier.
Johnson and Johnson 1 day Acuvue
THE PERFECT DAILY CONTACT LENSES
The 1 day Acuevue contact lens is the perfect daily contact lens, as it is very comfortable in the eye and give sharp clear eye-sight.
You may wonder why I'm getting so excited about a contact lens but if you knew me personally then you would understand, as I'm very clumsy and forgetful which are not great traits to have when you are a contact lens wearer as lenses are easy to rip, lose or forget to take them out. I have worn contact lenses for 15 years and have always had monthly lenses, which require constant cleaning and storing in a saline solution overnight, until recently when I was offered a trail of the daily lenses and found that they were more comfortable in the eye and I didn't need to worry about ripping them or losing them as I throw them away at the end of the night.
*****COST : COMPARED TO MONTHLY LENSES*****
If you wear contact lenses every day then the monthly lenses will be more cost effective for you but if you are like me and only wear them a couple of days a week then the dailies are perfect for you as the monthly lenses were costing me £15 a month compared to £30 for 30 pairs of daily lenses so over the year the daily lenses cost me £120 compared to £180 for the monthly lenses...a good saving especially when the daily lenses are more comfortable and easy to use.
*****PACKAGING AND MATERIAL*******
The contact lenses come in a long blue and white box with your contact lenses in small plastic cases. The small case have an easy to remove plastic cover with your contact lens inside the container with saline solution maintaining the lens is moist and ready to use. The contact lens is a soft lens made from silicone hydogel allowing oxygen into the eye while the contact is in the eye.
*****EASE OF USE*******
The contact lenses have a slight hint of blue to allow you to see the lens while in the contact solution. You need to take the lens out of the solution and into your eye which can be tricky and can take some time but the longer you do it the quicker you will become...after 15 years I can do it with my eyes shut...well not literally ;). The lenses are soft so be careful when handling them as they are easy to rip so care and attention must be taken. I found the lenses easy to use and much more comfortable in my eye than monthly lenses.
The Johnson and Johnson 1 day Acuevue contact lenses are brilliant. Not only are the lenses very comfortable and convenient, they provide amazing clear sharp eye-sight.
So treat your eyes and get Johnson and Johnson 1 day Acuevue daily contact lenses.
I've been using these contact lenses every day for 10 years and have found them to be absolutely brilliant. I changes from 3 monthly lenses because they used to get stiff and uncomfortable toward the end of their life due to protein build up in the lens. I have had no such problems with these lenses, they are extremly comfortable to wear as they are very soft and moist, and never get dry (unless you accidentally sleep with them in, if you do I'd recommend leaving them in and taking them out the next night as it's very uncomfortable to do it in the morning). To begin with it felt a bit odd throwing them in the bin at the end of the day, as the other lenses were so expensive and therefore precious, but not having to put them in solutions every night is a definite advantage! It's also handy if you go away just being able to throw a few pairs in your bag, rather than taking lots of solutions etc. They're not the cheapest way to wear lenses, but they are worth the extra money for the comfort and convenience.
I have always worn glasses and was nervous to try contact lenses for the first time however ive found a great match with these contact lenses.
They are comfortable and keep my eyes moist as i have found since with other contacts that they can dry out your eyes, but these are great.
The moisture helps also to make them easier to insert and take out, as dry contacts are a pain to take out as they tend to stick to your eye! Gross!
I have only ever had one issue when i put the lens in and a corner of it was broken and it really really agravated my eye and made it red. I dotn know if the lens was broken already or if my nails did it though.
The lenses are good value too and easier than monthlys that you have to clean. Ideal for taking on holiday and just throwing away at the end of the day!
Really like these Contact lenses, they were very comfortable to wear, and I would quickly forget that I am even wearing them whatever I am doing.
I usually wore them Everyday from about 7am, went to college, came home watched TV until late, stayed on the computer for a few hours, and still felt comfortable.
I really liked the fact that When I was super tired all I had to do was through them away! no cleaning and no hassle.
I never EVER got an infection, or disturbance in my eyes whilst wearing these, even though I sometimes fell asleep with them in during the evening.
I also never felt that my eyes were strained, dry, itchy or anything like that.
My only problem with these contact lenses, was that they were so expensive!!! As a student, I really could'nt afford them, even though I was getting them from Specsavers who were supposidley the cheapest, So I had to downgrade to the Two weekly ones, which make me appreciate the comfort I felt with these!
I seldom wear contact lenses and thus i always buy the one-day disposable pack, just wear when I need to. I've tried a few different brands before,they are all a bit dry for me. But after I changed and bought the 1-day Acuvue Moist last month and wore the contact lenses to a wedding dinner last month, i didn't feel dryness in my eyes. It's really watery. Anyway, it's hard to put on since the lenses are too soft. Overall i'm satisfied with the product and will be continue using it.
These lenses are great for me. I sometimes get dry eyes(not bad enough to not wear contacts) but these are fine for that and I almost never need to use eyedrops with them. The most useful thing about them is that I never end up trying to put them in inside out, they seem to retain their shape better and this makes it more obvious, I also get them in first time more than other lenses although if my hands are cold they cling to my fingers for dear life.
I have worn contact lenses on and off for around 5 years now. I used to wear soft lenses that you used to wear for 30 days and then threw them away.
As time went by of using these daily I was advised by my optician that I was wearing them too long and they were slowly damaging my eye. Apparently you are only meant to wear them for 7-8 hours a day but this just did not fit in with my lifestyle so I reverted back to wearing glasses.
Before my last holiday I thought I would try contact lenses again. I visited Optical Express and was offer Acuvue 1 day moist. These were slightly more expensive than I was expecting at £28 a month for 30 lenses but as soon as I put them in I knew they were worth the money.
Normally when I put in lenses after not wearing them for a while I feel slightly scratchy in my eyes and they often give me a slight headache. These slipped in so easily and I could honestly not feel them at all.
These are very comfortable lenses which can be worn for up to 16 hours a day according to my optician and then you just throw them away and start again the next day.
I have been wearing them for around 3 months now and as of yet I have nothing negative to say about them.
These 1 - day Acuvue contact lenses are made by the well known company Johnson and Johnson. They are single use disposable contact lenses.
I have been using this brand of contact lenses for about 7 years now and have never had any big problems from them. After a visit to the opticians, for a special contact lenses exam, the optician recommends the make of contact lenses which would be suitable for you. We decided I would benefit from single use disposable lenses as due to a health condition I can only wear contact lenses for about 4 hours occasionally. The optician also measures your eye so you get the correct size lense for yourself and this esures a comfie fit.
I love these contacts. They are soft to the touch. They feel very comfortable to wear. They are also very user friendly as they have a special 123 system. Basically printed on the rim of each lense is 123. Before putting the contact lense in you hold it up to the light and ensure that the 123 reads correctly. This means that you are putting in the contact lense the correct way.
They are very safe and hygienic. Each contact lense is packaged in its own pouch which is sterile. As they are disposable there is no need for any cleaning solutions and less risk of infection. They are therefore perfect for occasional wearers like me.
The 1 day Acuvue come in packs of 30 contact lenses. They cost £16.50 for a pack ( which of course is doubled if you have different prescriptions for each eye) You get them from your opticians or online if you have a valid prescription.
When I was in primary seven , I remember coming home and working up the courage to tell my mum I couldn't read the blackboard. I was so nervous because I really didn't want glasses, my sister had them and so did my mum and dad. I enjoyed being able to say I have perfect vision but it was all going to change.
I got an opticians appointment and right enough I was short sighted, so I got a new pair of glasses and over time became more dependant on them untill my eyesight got worse and I had to use them all the time. As I do karate it is hard to fight with glasses on and one by one my other family members where getting contact lenses. I really wanted them but was told I was too young.
When I was in S1 I got told that I was old enough now and was allowed contacts, I was so excited at the thought of it and couldn't wait until the appointment.
At the opticians I was told that 1-day disposable would be the best for me as I am only a kid and might break/lose or forget to use solutions on monthly lenses. My dad and sister already used the acuvue lenses and said they were brilliant.
When you get contact lenses you have to go for a fitting session where they scan your eye and measure it for the right size of lenses for you. After the fitting session you have to go and try a pair out, I also received a weeks worth of lenses and was told to gradually build up the time I wore them for starting at 3 hours and adding a hour or so on each day until I could wear them to school and then for the whole day!
As far as I am aware you can buy them in boxes of 90 or 30. I get them in boxes of 90 so I don't have to keep going back to get more. As all my family use lenses it does get expensive and at over £100 pounds for 2 boxes of 90 don't be fooled buy the prospect of cheap lenses. They're not.
There are lots of other brands of lenses that claim they don't dry out like ordinary lenses but these are just lenses and they haven't dried out on me yet. I wear them all day and I once wore them from 7 o'clock in the morning to like 12 o'clock the next day, I was doing a 24-hour walk. As long as you drink lots they don't dry.
They also have UV protection but the leaflet warns you that this doesn't mean you don't need to wear sunglasses. That brings me on to the other fact that for once in agais I could wear sunglasses I wanted not the proscription ones!!
The lenses are packed in boxes and they are put into individual cases with solution. These cases are them put into strips of 5 and to get the cases off the strip you just tear it off.
Different people have different ways of putting lenses in and your optician will instruct you on how to do this.
At the start of wearing them you notice them in your eyes and you will continuously blink. Its annoying at first but after a while you don't even fell the, well I don't notice them at all.
Over all I love these lenses and I feel so much happier and free with them compared to glasses. I love not having to see a big rim around your eyes.
Truly my lifesaver and I am dependant on them.
My rating 10/10..5 stars
I love the 1 day acuvue contact lenses, they are really easy to use and very comfortable. I've tried several different types of lenses and although these are a bit more expensive I think they are very much worth it.
The lenses are tinted with a very light blue which makes them very easy to find if you drop them! They also have a very clever "123" imprinted on the outer side to help you find the right way to put them in, far better and less time consuming than trying to fathom whether or not your contact lense is a saucer or a bowl shape before putting it into your eye, only to find you've choosen the wrong way and having to start all over again!
These contact lenses don't dry out and can easily be worn for a full day without giving you "gritty eyes" even working in an office where the air is very dry.
All in all a highly recommended product.
I used to use monthly contact lenses before but since I switch to Johnson and Johnson 1-day Acuvue, I keep using it until now. It's really soft and comfortable and it prolongs the dryness occurs in my eyes. Last time my eyes will get reddish easily but since i wear this lenses, the reddishness no longer happens that frequently. It's quite moist until sometimes I'm not aware I'm wearing contact lenses. But one of my friend told me that the high moisture level of the lenses may come from its absorption of water from our eyes. And thus actually it's still dry just we won't be aware of that. I'm not sure how true is it but I just keep on wearing it as I feel it's suitable for my eyes. Actually it's not cheap to wear the 1 day Acuvue compare to monthly contact lenses. Nevertheless I'll keep using it. Perhaps one day if I'm broke I may switch back to monthly one.
