As 1 Day Acuvue Moist is a daily disposable contact lens, they are not recommended or designed for multiple wear. they are designed to be worn once to provide a fresh clean lens every day and prevent protein build up and reduce eye infections. Daily lenses are also thinner than 2 weekly or monthly lenses and so are not as robust to withstand daily cleaning and storing.

I've tried a handful of different lenses now and these are the most difficult to handle. By that I mean they are difficult to put in due to being so soft, they simply stick to your finger or fall out. They would benefit from being more rigid. By the time I've faffed about drying my finger so that they don't stick there's barely any moisture left on the lense. Pretty useless considering the price, I won't be buying again.
This is a very good product. My son has dry eyes and they are suitable for him to wear. He can use them all day without redness. We have tried other contact lenses with no success. Overall would recommend especially if you get dry eyes with contacts.
I've tried various different types of contact lenses, such as the Oasys variants and Optix, but each of those lenses always felt sightly uncomfortable, especially when playing sport. Although the Moist has been around for a while, they are by far the most comfortable lenses I have ever worn.
Very large contact lenses which are useful if you have big eyes. Optician recommended them as smaller lenses were causing my eyes to dry out. These are very comfortable and fit perfectly. However due to their size they are more difficult to put in, so it takes a bit of practice to get used to them. A bit on the expensive side but never had any problems with tearing etc.
