    I just got a trial pair of these. I was using the plain plus Acuvue Advance
    and my vision was not bad, but a little unstable in terms of consistently
    remaining clear. These give better vision because they correct my
    astigmatism too. But, I have noticed a few things with this trial pair.
    First, I can feel them a little bit more in my eyes. But most importantly,
    they are very floppy and harder to work with when I take them out of a case
    than the plain plus lenses. Has anyone else experienced this? Might the
    manufacturer improve this feature and why is it like this? Is it something
    to do with the astig correction?

    I am currently trying trial Acuvue Advance for my left eye and Acuvue
    Advance for Astigmatism for my right eye, both plus lenses. This is my
    first pair of contact lenses. I do find the lens in my left eye a bit
    more comfortable, and that the lens in my right eye does occasionally
    rotate a bit, before re-centering, but for the most part, I don't
    really notice either.

    As for the handling, both do fold in on themselves when I remove them
    from the case and don't notice a significant difference between the
    two other than that the AA for Astigmatism is a larger diameter. Once,
    I unfold them on the end of my finger they are fine, but the AA for
    Astigmatism does seem to have a slightly greater tendency to try to
    stick to my finger when inserting.

    Overall, I am really pleased with both lenses and have had an easy
    time adjusting to them.
