    I wear Proclear 1 day. Will wear one pair two-three times for a few hours primarily for shooting 2-3 times per week before disposing. Wear primarily for shooting and some other occasional outdoor activities. Otherwise wear bifocals.

    Visual acuity and comfort is OK, but I was wondering if there is a better brand or practice to improve visual acuity and comfort. It is about time for new exam & reorder.

    Response from Steve Maltzahn or other eye specialist expressly appreciated.

    Thanks, Bill

    I use J&J's Oasys. I Don't know if they're better than yours but better than any I've tried.

    I've been wearing Acuvue II for many many years. I wear them all the time and taking them out at night. I can get about six weeks out of them.

    I wore ACUVUE II for several years. 6 months ago I switched to daily wear ACUVUE "Tru Eye". Eye comfort is soooooo much better. Can't even tell they're in my eyes. No blinking like before.....

    Try them.....you will like them.

    I wear glasses during the week. Wear Tru Eyes for shooting and outdoor activities.

    I've been wearing contacts for 28+ years. I'm currently using Acuvue Oasys and these are by far the best that I've tried. Some of the first contacts I wore way back when felt like 10 mil plastic in your eyes.

    I have been wearing acuvue oasys every day for a few years now and the only time I really notice them is when fall asleep in them. I'm hoping to get lasik surgery after I graduate college next may.

    Try the Night/Day from Air Optix. You can wear them for 30 plus days and also to sleep and not have the removal and/or cloudy vision problem in the AM. They are a little pricy but in my opinion well worth it. Very comfortable, good vision, easy to remove and insert.

    Cooper Vision Biofinity Toric. These work very well for me. I have astigmatism in my right eye. Thus the Toric. Nothing else is stable enough for shooting. I've tried em all. I use them for shooting, gym, yard work, kayaking etc. Disregard if you don't have astigmatism. Good for a month at 8-10 hours a day. YMMV.

    Bausch&Lomb PureVision 2. I go to Dr. Jeremy Ciano, of RevolutionEyes, Inc., here in Indianapolis. Dr.Ciano goes to NYC once a month, where he is the official Sports Vision Trainer for the NY Yankees. He asked me, "What is the difference between a fast ball coming at you at 95 mph and a clay target going away from you at 43 mph?. I can provide you the same lenses the Yankee's use."
    My scores went up over 10 percent instantly. I can see the target really for the first time, no more streaks!!
    He also provides vision training exercises that I have just started. I am a "one eyed" shooter who did struggle with crossfire. After the end of this season, and continuing with the vision training, I hope to try the old two eye high gun method again. Apparently, eye dominance switching, is an issue with baseball hitters too.!!
    Take care,
