I have been wearing contacts since I was 12. I hated glasses and always found some excuse not to wear them. I have used a few different types of contacts and have always found my eyes being dry and irritated. I am not the greatest at taking out my contacts every night, so when my eye doctor suggested the Air Optix Aqua lens(you can wear them for an extended time without taking them out) I was excited to try them.
Recommend this product?
Some may argue that these types of contact lenses are not healthy for your eyes, especially if you do not take them out every night to let your eyes breathe. But Air Optix Aqua Lens is different from the usual contacts because they contain silicon hydro-gel, which increases the amount of oxygen getting to the eye. This is great for me because like I said I am not the greatest at taking my contacts out at night. It also makes the eye more wet which causes less irritation and infection.
I like wearing these because they are light and feel very natural. They are clear, comfortable and do not irritate my eyes as much as the previous contacts I have worn.
One thing that I don't like about the Air Optix Aqua is that if I have not taken them out for a couple of weeks they do start to feel "heavy" or irritate my eyes. Because I wear them without taking them out as much I have noticed that I have to change them every month or shortly after or they wear out, and it is harder for me to see. I try to extend my contacts as long as possible.
