They are ok

I have used "Air Optix" by CibaVision for years. This Rx the Eye Folks changed to "Air Optix plus HydraGlyde". <br> <br>So far today, almost as comfortable as the older ones. There is a very slight sensation that there is 'something' in the eye that I didn't experience with the older Rx . No change to the RX nor the Dr doing the exam.
Thumbs Down for HydraGlyde

Tried them for a week.. it felt like there was a particle of dust in my eye and they were constantly moving around on my eyes. Very uncomfortable. I went back to the Air Optix Aqua, which are the best lenses I've ever owned!!!!!
Terribly incompatible with my eyes
by Jungeun -
Felt like I was wearing a thick lens with dust particles. <br> <br>I really liked Air Optix, so I thought I would give it a try. This was a mistake. My first pair irritated my eyes in a few hours. So I oped up a new pair thinking that the first pairs were torn/defective. Same result.
AMAZING AND REFRESHING

I just got this contacts on 4/17/2017 and just switched from the normal air optix to this air optix plus HydraGlyde and they are amazing! omg they feel better and after 10 hours of use omg my eyes are not even dry! I l Love them, I didn't experience any issues, not sure but I always clean my brand new contacts with solution before use so maybe that helped?
No thanks 😯

I was given these as trial and from the moment I put them in it was a fail. My all time favorite are the O2 Air Optix, but was given these to try. For my eyes they were HORRID. They are very uncomfortable, very drying and my eyes are red at the end of the day. Thumbs down for me undoubtedly

These are absolutely the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE lenses I have EVER worn. I am going back to the AIR OPTIX AQUA lenses! I feel like I have something in my eye. I have the monthly replacements and have to replace them like every week. I hate them.

After wearing Air Optix Aqua for nearly 3 years my doctor switches me to hydraglyde for one week my eyes are being irritated after I remove them... They feel thicker and uncomfortable going back to Aqua
Longtime Air Optix Aqua Fan - HydraGlyde is Awful
by Calci W. -
Love Aqua? Stick with it. Skip Hydraglyde or be miserable. <br> <br>Alright, so I've been using Air Optix Aqua contacts for 8 years. Recently, my doctor switched me to "hydraglyde". I've stuck it out and used the whole box because, well, I can't afford to throw them out. <br> <br>That said, the irritation is getting worse and worse. Now in month 5, I can wear these for about 3 hours a day if I have to and am more or less sticking to an outdated pair of glasses. I will definitely go back to Aqua with my next order, though I've thought about switching companies altogether. <br> <br>(Vision Pros gets ***** for being awesome, too. It's just the contacts that are bad because they were developed that way.)
