Once upon a time there was a girl who had 20/20 vision. Then one day during her senior year of college she noticed she couldn’t read the board in class or see that cute boy across campus whom she just knew could help her with her dreaded economics class. She graduated and started working on a computer at least 7 hours a day and started wearing glasses more and more often. She didn’t want to walk down the aisle wearing glasses, so in 1997, the year she and her husband got married, she became a full-time contact lens wearer and fan.
I’ve been wearing Johnson & Johnson’s Acuvue brand for nearly 10 years. Since its introduction in 1999, Acuvue 2 has been best-selling hydrogel contact lens on the market. Acuvue 2 lenses also protect your eyes against harmful UV-A and UV-B rays.
I’ve been a faithful Acuvue customer because they’ve never given me any problems. They are 2-week disposable lenses, which I prefer since I don’t like to sleep with my lenses in, but you can also choose to wear them as 1-week extended wear lenses. I spend a lot of time in front of a computer and I’ve never experienced eye fatigue or dryness. Acuvue 2 lenses are also slightly tinted, making them easy to see, which, for someone like me with a -4.50 prescription in her left eye (thankfully my right eye is not as weak) makes it much easier when I’m cleaning my lenses and storing them for the night.
Right now Acuvue 2 is offering a special deal for a free trial pair of contact lenses on their website, so this is a great time to try them out. Plus, they are reasonably priced. Whether you’re just starting to wear contact lenses, or you’ve been relying on them for years like me, you should definitely try them out.
