    I am a 27-year-old male. A month ago, I was wearing Focus Dailies,
    left eye -7.00 and right eye -6.00.

    These felt okay on my eye, but I went to Lenscrafters recently because
    my vision started getting kind of blurry, as usual after I've had a
    prescription for over a year or so.

    I decided to go with Optix 2 this time, mostly because she said the
    Dailies only went up by - .5 once you got past -7.00. The doctor
    gauged my prescription at -6.25 right eye, and -7.5 left eye. Here's
    the deal: and this may show my ignorance, but my Diameter for the
    Dailies is listed as 13.8. For the Optix, it's 14.2.

    Even though the prescription is stronger, things are still blurry.
    Honestly, I don't notice much of a difference between these and the
    prior pair. I guess I didn't notice it at first during the week
    trial, but I notice now and will probably go back to Dailies. It
    doesn't feel like the contacts fit on my eye as well as the Dailies.
    Do diameters generally vary between brands?

    Also, I don't know if this was just last night, as I haven't been out
    many nights, but my vision is actually CLEARER at night... especially
    letters on signs and stuff. During the day, letters on signs are
    blurry.

    Thank you for your response, MT. Today, the blurriness was bothering
    me. So, at lunch today, I noticed that I had a pair of my Focus
    Dalies remaining, which again are -7.00 left eye and -6.00 right
    eye.

    I should have done this during my trial, but here are my observations:

    1) Things are about "equally" as blurry in these Focus Dailies as
    things are in my -7.50left, and -6.25 right. The difference, though,
    is that the blurriness is uniform in nature. The blurriness in my
    Optix seems to be as if the letters I see on signs, etc., are not only
    blurry but also offset from each other. It's almost as if in the
    Optix, I'm slightly seeing double vision, along with bluriness, but
    just barely double vision. It's as if the letters are only slightly
    offset from each other. To me, wearing my Focus Dailies today was
    very much more comfortable because of this. Blurry...but uniformly
    blurry.


    It's been about 3 weeks or so since I got these contacts. I think I
    want to go back to Focus Dailies though. I'm honestly not trying to
    shill for Focus Dailies or anything, as I know probably Accuvue is a
    better brand than Focus Dailies, but I think they feel good so maybe I
    should just go back to them.

    Thanks for your help.
