Thanks, Alix!

I tried the Acuvue Moist, did not like it. Dr. recommended Cibavision Dailies Aquacomfort Plus, I found them hard to insert, and did not find them as comfortable as my old standbies. I may just reorder my old TNT. Still have a couple more brands to try.

Currently I'm wearing Ciba's Air Optix Aqua. They are amazingly comfortable and wonderfully permeable. I wear them for extended periods of time and I sometimes have to remind myself that I'm wearing them. They're quite durable. Never had a problem with them splitting or tearing.
Hmm. Dr. didn't give me a sample of those. I need to ask.
