    Anyone heard of AMO Complete Aquavision lenses? Cant find info on the AMO
    website.

    Apprarantly made from a new polymer than resists drying out?

    AFAIK, AMO does not market contact lenses. AMO Complete with
    Aquavision is a contact lens multipurpose solution sold in UK, also
    called Complete in USA.

    I have trial lenses right in front of me.
    Made in Ireland
    GMAqua 40% and water 60%
    BCR 8.7 diam 14.2
    At the moment only spherical powers.
    Brought as a lens which does not dehydrated.

    The advise is to use the Complete MoisturePlus solution with these lenses.

    The press release indicates that is a lens manufactured by Coopervision
    and sold by AMO. My further research finds that the lens is sold in very
    limited markets and it is marketed along with the Complete Mutipurpose
    Solution.

    The lens is not available in the USA, but the material, hioxifilcon, is
    indeed, by a number of lens manufacturers. It is not a "new polymer" as
    it has been around for quite a few years. It does indeed resist
    dehydration compared to some of the standard HEMMA type plastics. In
    fact, I'm wearing a multifocal made of hioxifilcon as I type this.

    I have trial lenses right in front of me.

    Any what result have you found with then? Do they resist drying more than
    other contacts (such a proclear?) Any idea of the DK and centre thickness of
    the lens?
