    Biomedic Torics - Good vision, become dry/sticky after 6 hours.
    Rewetting doesn't help.
    Left -1.75 x 80 x 0
    Right -1.25 x 90 x 0

    Previously wore Hyrdon Ultra-T for Left & B&L Optima Toric for Right.
    Biomedics weren't as comfortable as previous but best I could tolerate.

    Other torics tried -- Acuview, Preference, Softlens 66 & Frequency 55
    though got good vision, all weren't comfortable--some within minutes of
    wearing felt tight and/or dry.

    Might Proclear Toric or PureVision Torics be more comfortable?

    Increased Comfort is my primary goal.

    Thanks for any recommendations.
    Regards, Steven.

    PS. I can't read with my Torics. Reading is possible (not great) with
    them out.
    Maybe I'm pressing my luck to ask if there are comfortable Multifocal

    Thanks Anon. I got trial pairs of ProClear Toric & Acuview Advanced
    Toric today.
    So far ProClear feel comfortable, vision isn't great. Dr ordered
    different base curve to try.
    And, I will be trying the Acuview Advanced tomorrow.
