AcuVue 2 vs. AcuVue Oasis Contact For Sufing

  • I've recently experimented with two types of AcuVue contacts, the AcuVue 2 and Oasis.

    Two years ago, I switched from the 2 to the Oasis. It's more expensive and seems like a more premium contact because of the tiny porous holes, which are supposed to allow your eyes to breath more. But, after surfing with them in, I began to notice that they seemed to retain a lot more salt water and would sting my eyes. Basically, they were ruined after one or two sessions.

    Recently, I switched back to the AcuVue 2, and it was a much better experience. I believe they retain less saltwater and are easier to clean. I've noticed less irritation because of this.

    Does anyone else surf with contacts or had a similar experience?

  • I routinely use the AcuVue 2's - thanks for the heads up on the Oasis, I'll avoid them!
