    Your eye doctor would be the one to consult with. There are four major soft lens contact lens suppliers (Alcon, Bausch & Lomb, Cooper, and Vistakon). Each has multiple types of contact lens design and materials. Your OD will discuss your daily activities and options and provide you with a lens that fits you and your needs best. There is no magical "best" contact lens. Most soft lens designs now are silicone hydrogels that have a higher oxygen transmission that are healthier for your eyes, also a few hybrid water gradient lenses too.

    You guys are mean. Making fun of a guy just trying to order CL's online, and screw his OD out of the fitting fee.
