    I wear acuvue advanced and sometimes I stay up all night and when I do
    this I notice that the next day, which is really the same day since I
    didnt go to sleep, my eyes feel very uncomfortable from the contacts.
    The use of rewetting drops doesnt really help that much. Is there
    anything I can do about this like take the contacts out, clean them and
    put them back in, or take them out for a little while, like an hour or
    something, and then put them back on. Any information would be greatly

    yeah. take them out for a little while (at least one hour) and let
    them disinfect in your contact lens solution. that will allow
    atmospheric oxygen to get to your eyes and reduce any adverse effects
    from hypoxia.

    Ask about Acuvue Oasys.

    Here's an idea. Get some regular eyeglasses and wear them instead of
    the contacts when you are at home. No one will see you, and we won't
    tell anybody you need correction.

    I find it silly how vain some people are! I am not vain and I much
    prefer glasses over contacts. My contacts become uncomfortable after an
    hour or two, doesnt matter what brand too. My tolerance to contacts is
    much less than yours. Whats your pescription? If its very high or
    complex maybe this poster just doesnt see as well with glasses due to
    minification and disortion. I wear undercorrected computer glasses and
    my eyes rarely get tired

    i know its hard for you to believe but this thread isn't about you.

    noone asked or cares about your contact prescription or how contact
    feel on your eyes. the guy just simply told what his problem is and
    asked for some advise-- from people who know. that excludes you.

    so why do you feel compelled to chime-in on every post that is even
    obtusely related to something that you know about, and then try to
    hijack the discussion into something that relates to YOU? could it be
    that you have an ego problem? could it be that you are seeking
    attention from us because you don't get enough from daddy? if you are
    such a genius (as you like to brag you are) then why don't you think
    about it some.

    and don't bother to post here unless you really have something to
    contribute. we're tired of hearing about you, or your sister, etc.

    He does it because he likes to act like a moron. That is obvious
    whether he has a high IQ or a low one. He acts stupid. What I can't
    understand is why some people feel compelled to reply to all his
    nonesense. You are giving him the attention he craves. Just ignore him
    or killfile him.

    As I've said here since the dawn of Otis -- rightly or wrongly: the
    person who just learned of a vision problem with their loved one and
    comes here seeking advice is vulnerable to the ignorance, agendas,
    illogic, and unconscionable behavior of Ace and Otis if nobody says

    While some might believe that these two's idiocy is instantly
    recognized, after you've been here for a while (in my case: years),
    you start to realize that some pretty anxiety-ridden, desperate people
    stop by who may NOT be thinking at their best.

    Those folks have been vulnerable to, and HURT BY, the likes of Otis

    Hurt ... as in double vision and other ocular problems that they did
    NOT have before they listened to the nice man in the Cadillac offering
    chocolate bars to their kids.

    It takes a vast leap of faith--one that a few of us are reluctant to
    make--to say that nobody will get hurt if the replies ceased tomorrow.

    Ace, obviously you are unwilling to read or absorb the information
    posted here, but believe it or not, some people wear contacts for
    reasons other than vanity.

    relax, I am just trying to help! He should find it reassuring that I
    have worse problems with contacts than he does! I then went on to give
    advice that sticking to glasses more often will help as it does for me.
    Whats wrong with what I said? This is a free board with free speech and
    I have the right to help others. As for vanity, theres other reasons
    including partaking in sports and also better BCVA for high myopes as
    contacts dont minify.

    I think pretty much everybody here is relaxed but you (well, ... Otis,
    too) whose pathological need to post compels them where wisdom doesn't
    inform them.
    Out of idle curiosity, though: how many times do you need to be told
    that you hurt far more than you help before you realize that the most
    help you could be is to unplug your computer and go play?
    Why is it that idiots like you and Otis are always PASSIONATELY
    concerned about your "rights," but blithely ignorant of your moral or

    THAT--among myriad other things--is why you seem to get called an
    idiot around here a great, great deal.

    To wit: idiot.

    Dear Ace,

    Subject: ridicult by the MO doctors

    Pay no attention to them, my sweet, young prodigy.

    As long as you and I share what we share, then
    they cannot hurt us, they cannot stop us, and they
    cannot KEEP us apart.

    Well, that was implied (out of the blue) by Dicky who
    is also in the same boat with Otis and Ace with little or
    twisted knowledge, some bizarre agenda, and the need
    to interject for attention. Ace, in his mushroom induced
    stupor, transferred this insinuation to the OP. Maybe I
    didn't give Ace enough credit... It could have been a
    deliberate attempt at obfuscation but I doubt it.

    killfiling is a good option.
    so is public humiliation.

    i guess you really didn't killfile him or ignor him.

    seems like you are trying to reason with him. it won't work because he
    thinks he is inately smarter than you and everyone else. after all, he
    is "Aceman" and we are just amongst the ignorant mass. we just don't
    recognize his superior intelligence (obtained solely through reading on
    the internet).

    Thanks for all the advice and to a lesser degree the banter. I am on
    my last box of lenses so I have to go see my eye doctor soon anyway.
    At that time I will ask about Oasys but the only problem would be that
    I wear Acuvue Advanced for Asthigmatism in one of my eyes. When I say
    very uncomfortable Im meaing that there is no pain but it does bother
    me. When my contacts bother me I become considerably more agitated as
    I have a very low threshold for discomfort. I wear contacts for a
    multitude of reasons but Ive only been wearing them for less than a
    year now. I first got them for facial comfort reasons but I also find
    that I see much better with them. My appearance in them is actually
    the last reason that I wear them although I find that they do have a
    positive effect on me asthetically. The improvement in physical
    activites is actually even more of a resaon for wearing contacts for me
    than my appearance. The thing about the artificial tears thing is that
    alot of the time when I stay up all night its because I am just not
    tired so its kind of a spur of the moment type of thing.

    A related question I have is that kind of improvement can I see by
    wearing Acuvue Oasys. Im assuming that the main improvement is that
    after a long period of time they will feel more comfortable than Acuvue
    Advanced. Most of the time I can feel my contacts at all for the first
    12 hours or so so any improvement there would only make a minor
    improvement in my happines with the lens. My second biggest problem
    with contacts after the long term uncomfort issue is the initial
    comfort issue, meaning the comfort for the first minute or so after I
    put them in or the comfort when I am actually putting them in. Alot of
    the time I find myself very quickly taking the contact back out of my
    eye and cleaning it again to then find it more comfortable, sometimes I
    have to do this twice or three times.

    Night and Day, PureVision, PureVision Toric, O2Optix, and Oasys are
    suitable overnight lenses. Acuvue Advance is not. Keep it simple and
    change to a lens appropriate for your needs.
