Which is better Dailies Aquacomfort Plus Toric or Acuvue Moist?
1 Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism may be considered better than Dailies Aquacomfort Plus Toric for those who live active lifestyles and spend a lot of time outdoors as they feature UVA and UVB protection and an eyelid stabilising design to ensure the lens stays perfectly stable even when engaging in vigorous activity. These lenses also have a higher cylinder range and are therefore better for those who have a higher level of astigmatism.
Dailies Aquacomfort Plus Toric however, may be considered better for those who are new to wearing contact lenses as their thin lens design coupled with their handling tint and inside out mark makes them easy to apply for those who aren’t yet used to wearing contact lenses.
Nevertheless, its best to speak to your optician and get fitted with the most suitable lens for your prescription and lifestyle before you decide whether Dailies Aquacomfort Plus Toric or 1 Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism is best for you. These lenses fit very differently due to their designs and therefore visual acuity can vary from person to person.
How does Dailies Aquacomfort Plus Toric compare to Acuvue Moist?
Both Dailies Aquacomfort Plus Toric and Acuvue Moist contact lenses are designed to deliver long lasting comfort and hydration while correcting astigmatism. However, they both utilise different technologies to achieve this.
Dailies Aquacomfort Plus Toric features Blink-activated technology which provides moisture every time you blink to keep your eyes hydrated all day long. Acuvue Moist on the other hand, relies on LACREON Technology to keep the lenses feeling fresh, hydrated, and comfortable by binding water to the contact lens.
They are both optimised to treat astigmatism with Dailies Aquacomfort Plus featuring LightStream Technology to offer a unique shape that helps fit eyes specifically with astigmatism and Acuvue Moist using ASD technology to maintain the lens position on the eye, for consistent vision.
