Ive started my trial of the CooperVision Avaira 2 week silicone hydrogel disposable contact lens. I havent worn them during a work day yet, so they havent been exposed to my rigorous staring-at-the-computer-screen-all-day test. However, they felt great during the one weekend day Ive tried them so far.
Unfortunately, they arent noticeably more comfortable than the Acuvue Advance, so it really comes down to price. The Acuvue Advance are $16 per box at lens.com, while the CooperVision Avaira are $19 per box on lens.com.
Now, I know CooperVision probably thinks their primary competition is the Acuvue Oasys, so the Avaira is a cheaper alternative to the Oasys, but they should probably take note of the fact that a lot of people actually prefer the Acuvue Advance over the Acuvue Oasys, even without taking price into consideration. In fact, the Oasys is cheaper than the Advance right now because of the $100 Oasys rebate for first time wearers, but I would still choose the Advance over the Oasys.
So CooperVision, if you want me to buy your Avaira lens, you have to make it price-competitive with the Acuvue Advance otherwise, there is no way I (or many other Advance wearers) will consider your lens.
