Acuvue Advance is advancing

  1. I was just asked today by my fitter to participate in a pre-market
    trial of the upcoming Acuvue Advance silicone hydrogel. I declined,
    after learning a bit more about the lenses. I was told that they
    would be similar in design/parameters to the Acuvue 2, which is one
    reason I was not interested (I did not find the Acuvue 2 to be
    comfortable to wear, although I understand this is not a common
    experience with this lens). The other reason is that I was told that
    the Advance is to be a daily-wear lens, and as such the Focus Night &
    Day has much more appeal to me.

    If anybody else has any information they have heard on this lens, I
    would be very interested to hear it. I did get the impression that
    Acuvue has other lenses in the works for extended wear.

    Anyway, the trial is supposed to be completed sometime in December, so
    I assume that the Advance can't be far from entering the marketplace.
