    Acuvue Hyrdraclear

    I wear them for about a month and then dispose of them. They come 8 to a box at about $35 per box I believe. I guess the final price depends on insurance.

    I use the same brand. I like them a lot. They breathe a lot better. Mine are also monthly contacts, but I normally stretch them out to about 6 weeks. Not saying you should do that, but I do. It will take a while to get used to them, but they are MUCH better than glasses. You will blink a lot at first. Good luck!

    Acuvue Advance w/hydraclear...

    I love them. I have had contacts for 5 years now and my vision has actually gotten a little better.

    I would have gotten contacts about 10 years ago when I was 16 if not for the ignorant optometrist who told me I could not have them. I am thankful that I was told I could have them with no problem in 2001 and they changed my life for the better.

    I can't stand wearing glasses now and I will wait for lasik surgery to get several generations in before I finally get it...I know too many people who complain about halos and problems seeing at night because of the surgery.

    I have the contacts that are worn during the day and last a month, but with good care, they last a few weeks longer.
