When i decided to try to go to a new eye clinic and get my eye exam these were the Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism contacts were the ones that were prescribed to me. I tell you what these at the time and still are good contacts. During the eye contact exam the lovely eye doctor did try to persuade me try on other contacts that were supposedly better. I tried them and i can actually feel the contacts as if they were plastic and not soft contacts. I chose to stick with my trusty Acuvue's Advance for Astigmatism they were just that comfortable and did not feel any pain like they were scratching my eyeballs. There are better contacts out there for your precious eyeballs called Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism Contact Lenses which i currently use. During the time that i have used Acuvue Advance for Astigmatism contacts have have torn a few of them from just cleaning them and rubbing my eyes when i have them on. So they are a little bit less durable then the contacts i currently use.
