Avaira Toric contact lenses are made from an exclusive material that contains moisture within the contact lenses, making them a comfortable lens option for people with astigmatism. The silicon hydrogel lenses are highly breathable, allowing more oxygen to reach your corneas than other lenses. Made to wear on a daily basis for up to two weeks, each box of Avaira contacts contains six lenses.
This is a special order lens and may take up to 10 business days.
I have been wearing contacts off and on for over 10 years. I say off and on because I have never been able to find contacts that do not itch. For a while, I thought that is how they were supposed to feel that is until I spoke with friends who are also contact wearers. The first kind I tried were Color Blends Toric, then Vertex Toric. I sampled Acuvue Oasys a couple of weeks ago which I was previously sure would be comfortable. Just because of the commercials. I couldn't wait to try them. But before my exam, I wanted to make sure this time, I found the perfect lenses for me. I googled best contacts for astigmatism and best contacts for itchy eyes. And Avaira came up. I looked at quite a few other reviews and I mostly saw great reviews. So I told my doctor about them, he had never heard of them. But he ordered them for me. I am wearing them for the first time today and I immediately noticed a difference. No itching and No irritation. And they stay moist. Which is shocking. I truly couldn't be happier. I was starting to think that I wouldn't be able to wear contacts. These will be my contacts of choice from here on out.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
CooperVision Avaira is negligent at best. This manufacturer was supposed to correct some production issues in their manufacturing plant but failed to comply with the audit requirements because they didn't want to pay the cost of the adjustments that were necessary. The result of the production errors-silicon residue on NUMEROUS lots of contact lenses injuring many, including me. Adding insult to injury, didn't even want to issue a recall notice and tried to minimize people's injuries and concerns. Umm, you can't minimize or justify the horrible event of torn corneas!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
