Lenses - update... [Mar. 15th, 2005|12:49 pm]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |happyhappy]

Well, I've now had my new continuous-wear lenses in for nearly 3 hours, and I feel fine. I mean, I certainly know that they are there, as I can feel them much more than I could feel my daytime lenses.

I'm on a limited-wear programme at the moment: daytime wear only, maximum of 10 hours a day, for 14 days. Then I go back for a check-up.

The amazing thing about it is that so far Boots haven't asked for any money from me. They say that they won't ask for money until suitability has been determined after the 14 days. I was quite impressed by that.

After 3 hours wear with my old lenses, I would now be feeling like something was pulling on my eyes, like the lenses were sucking at them.

So, for me to not be feeling that at the moment is a substantial improvement. I just hope my eyes are suited for them. :o)

They're supposed to be made of more liquid which is why they tend to feel better. (apparently!)

Interestingly enough... these lenses are 36% water, whereas my others were 55%.

Weird ;)

I have no idea what % mine are.

Generally the 'wetter' the lens, the more comfortable they are but the shorter they last.

So, are the continuous wear lenses thinner or thicker than your monthly disposables?

They certainly appear and feel thicker.

That's really odd. I'd have thought that the continuous ones would have been thinner, since they're handled less often? I used to use the three monthly disposables which were like having table coasters in my eyes ;) The monthly ones I now use are about 25% of the thickness. I always thought the continuous ones would be thinner still.
