    Is Acuvue planning on releasing a daily version of their Advanced,
    Advanced for Asthigmatism, and/or Oasys contact lenses. I heard that
    dailies are better for people with allergies like me and doesnt require
    you to clean them which sounds nice. Also are there any disadvantages
    to wearing daily lenses and how long can you wear them for. Thanks.

  2. I've been wearing Focus Dailies for about 3 years and have found one
    major problem--they are so flimsy that about one in 20 is damaged when
    I open the package and has to be thrown away. Also, about every two
    weeks one of them breaks apart while wearing it and this can cause a
    lot of pain. It can become especially bad when it breaks into little
    pieces and you have to fish them out from under your upper eyelid.

    This problem seems to be getting worse with every batch of lenses I
    order so I decided to quit using them and try the Night and Day

    I have on occasion worn the dailies for longer than one day--maybe two
    or three days--without a problem; but I would only recommend using them
    for one day since they are prone to breakage.

    Dailies are great because you can toss them away without worrying about
    cleaning and if some company ever makes a more durable daily lens I
    will probably go back to using them.

    I also wear Focus Dailies and have encountered the same problem. I also
    find they make my eyes drier then conventional soft lenses. They are
    very flimsy and fragile and tear easy.

    Of course not since the original impetus behind silicone-hydrogel
    lenses was continuous wear. I still think that the continuous wear
    option is not being fully leveraged, and that future generations of
    silicone-hydrogel lenses will prove to be even better.

    The other prohibition is cost. It is no accident that all daily
    disposable lenses are made out of the cheapest possible materials in
    the cheapest possible manner.

    Vistakon and B&L also make daily disposable lenses. The B&L is likely
    the most durable.

    Naturally. I wish my patients were willing to spend double what they
    now spend for contact lenses. As it is, most think that $500/year is
    too much, which puts the current daily disposables out of reach.
