price shouldn't be the decision whether the lens can last how long?

my degree on my left is 100~ with 50 astig iirc.

In layman terms, Acuvue astig lens are designed in such a way that empowers blinking to re-orientate the lens back to the correct position. That means you don't have to care about any marking or whatsoever, just wear it as a regular lens, and after a few blink, the lens will rotate itself to the correct position, thats the technology ASD. Acuvue Astig is a 2weeks disposable lens.

advantages

cleaner
(since its disposed every 2 weeks)

more hygienic (if you buy a monthly lens n dispose every 2 weeks, you will get the same benefit of hygiene but more expensive n none of other benefits)

higher Oxygen flux due to hydraclear(basically silicon hydrogel material, highly waterphilic & high water holding capacity,one indicator of your eyes depriving O2 is when you see bloodshots or blood vessels around your pupil, long term wearing of such lens is ofcourse bad for eye )

greater comfort
(hydraclear or silicon hydrogel is a very soft n flexible material that is very breathable and moisture rich)

Lens reorientate easily (other brand like B&L uses ballasted design which means relying on gravity to stabilise the lens, that means when you run or play sports or lie side way or in anyway where by will shift your CG will also disorientate the lens n blinking will not help to restore the orientation only way is to realign yourself to gravity)

UVA/UVB protection ( that does not mean you can throw away your sunglasses, it just means additional protection for your eye, if you need sunglasses due to sensitive eyes, you will still need it)


Disadvantages

not cheap (you only 1 pair of eyes)
need to throw every 2 weeks (its jus a matter of getting accustomised)

awayaway: Acuvue bi-weekly (2 weeks / lens) x 6 pairs = 3 mths.
Ard $130. Long time didn't check price liao. Hope the price falls.

maximmaxim: If I wear it for 1 whole mth.... what will happen, huh? nothing happen, right?
Cheaper this way.
