well here's the rub, no pun intended...I wear my contacts for MONTHS at a time...I sleep in them, i NEVER take them out or clean them, or change them for that matter until they rip.
yep, it's a little secret bausch and lomb dont want you to know, so you keep buying Freshies and their Solution....it's pure bullshit, you're suckers.
i have been out there over a decade, i dont wear goggles, and i've never had any issues.
with that said, i am a freak of nature, and i dont suggest you try this with hard contacts, but have you tried the extended wear? you dont have to do what i do, but as far as comfort and ease, i know from experience (i had hard lenses too) that the soft, or semi-soft are so much easier all around.
not to mention they come in colors and hello kitty too.
