    Trying Acuvue Advance Torics and having lots of on eye dryness within 4
    hours.

    Are there any Torics that won't dry out on the eye so fast?

    Had been wearing Biomedic torics which also dry out after 6 hours.

  2. right now there istn't, but o2optics torics are on the way, should be good.

    you *are* rubbing the lens, both surfaces, to clean it after each use,
    right, no matter what the no-rub claims are on the bottle???

    My eyes dry out in an hour or two with any contacts. You could buy some
    eyedrops to insert in your eyes or just stick to glasses like I do

    Don't hold your breath for the Ciba product. My latest call to them
    (two weeks ago) said the USA product is "off the list" for the year.
    They've been delaying the roll-out since Feb 05. But so what? B&L
    Purevision Toric is available, about to be so in expanded parameters
    (plus and higher cyls) and works like a dream.

    LB, O.D.

    I gotta' tell you, Spaceman ... you may want to buy an old Aretha
    Franklin album. That's gonna' be your best shot at R-E-S-P-E-C-T,

    "...stick to glasses like I do."

    That's priceless. Who'd have thought of that??

    "Doc, it hurts when I do this."

    "Then don't do that."

    We're here all week, folks. Don't forget to tip your bartenders....
