    the one that is most comfortable and not irritating eyes at extreme playing conditions

    thanks!

    Prince Phantom Lens -- considered the softest, most flexible lens

    There is no such thing. Individuals vary quite a bit on what materials they are allergic to and what shapes and curvatures they can tolerate.

    I personally recommend Acuvue Daily Disposable with Moisture, but my son does not do well with it. In fact, he says he can't wear contact lenses at all.

    Go to your eye doctor and tell him/her your concerns and you can try a number of different contact lenses.

    My daughter is complaining that when she plays a match in contacts, she tends to not blink too often to be able to track the ball, and then once she blinks, the lenses are already too dry and tend to shift a little bit and it takes time for them to realign, so there is a "blind" moment... I am wondering if anyone has experienced that issue. I was hoping there are better contacts to avoid this issue.

    Yes, that has happened to a lot of people.

    There are at least two possibilities:

    (1) If those contacts did not give her trouble before but she started having trouble recently, then she might have developed a condition that requires a few weeks of rest (i.e., not wearing lenses). Flip her eye lid inside out and see if it has a lot of small bumps. She may have developed allergies to the protein accumulation due to prolonged lens usage. You can take her to the eye doctor for medicine or simply let her spend a few weeks without lenses.

    (2) The particular lenses are not a good fit for her. Take her to her eye doctor and have her try different contacts.

    It's why I now use prescription Oakleys.

    I've used oasis for years and they've never given me problems when playing.

    I switched from acuvue to Clariti and couldn't be happier. They stay moister than the acuvue.... And I see better with them.

    Interesting. I'll give Clariti a try.
