The newer contacts are more comfortable, can be worn for longer as they allow more oxygen through. When choosing the best contact lenses, wearers need to first consider their doctors’ advice, and then look at the best options in the available brands. The best contact lenses are the ones which are the most comfortable, that allow the user to see clearly, and that match the lifestyle of the wearer, such as how long the lenses will be worn during the day. The top three contact lens brands are Acuvue Oasys, CooperVision Proclear and Air Optix Aqua Multifocal Contact Lenses.
CooperVision Proclear is the only brand where the FDA has approved a statement that the lenses may improve comfort for wearers who have specifically been suffering from symptoms related to dry eyes during contact lens wear. The special PC technology allows water molecules to bind with the lenses, so the moisture doesn’t wear off during even a long day. These lenses can be used to correct vision for people who are either nearsighted or farsighted, although additional clarity in one area can lead to less clarity in the other. Unfortunately, the Proclear lenses do not offer UV protection. Lens.com offers CooperVision Proclear for as little as $15.95 for a six-month supply.
