I'm a daily user of the 1 Day Acuvue contact lenses, and I use the contacts for up to 12 hours or more everyday. I'm thinking of switching over to Moist, but I wanted to see if there were any major, noticeable differences. Any users on here who have used both who can recommend me?

Elite, I have never used the normal ones but am a daily user of the moist ones
as I am in a metal tube for quite a lot of time and they suit me.
I was told by my optician that the moist ones are best if you are going
to wear them over 8 hours. Give them a try, they are very, erm, moist!

I use the regular acuvue ones. I tried the moist when I first started with contacts and the caused my eyes to become very irritated and red. I did not find them comfortable at all. I suggest sticking with the regular ones.

I use the new Acuvue Advance, 2 week lenses, after recently switching from Acuvue 2. The Advance has similar technology to the Moist, and i would tell you that the difference is noted. It is not a world of difference but for the little change in price I invest in the best available..
Contacts lenses have changed I can tell i have been using them for 10 years now,. HAH

Perhaps not really answering the question, but after using Focus Dailies and Daily Acuvue for several years I switched to bi-weekly Acuvue 'Oasys' and have never looked back. I have massively sensitive eyes and these are by far the most comfortable contact lens I've ever worn ... not to mention bi-weeklies are cheaper than dailies
I always found the dailies to be comfortable for up to 5-6 hours ... tops. If you wear your contacts for 8-10-12 hours, I'm sure the Oasys will provide you with much better comfort. Get a trial pair from your optician and give them a shot.

Same here, I hate the "Moists", find them blurry and uncomfortable, went back to regular ones...
