Weakness: Eyes are red and very dry during light use
Let me preface this by saying that contacts are a very personal choice, and while I have had a decidedly negative experience with this brand, your eyes may do well with these contacts.

Let me preface this by saying that contacts are a very personal choice, and while I have had a decidedly negative experience with this brand, your eyes may do well with these contacts.
I have had contacts for over ten years, for a longtime using Frequency 55, I then switched to Day/Night which were ok for a year, but then started bothering my eyes. A year ago I tried Acuvue Advance. And for the first 2 months they were exactly what a contact should be: last a reasonable amount of time (2 weeks), not be noticeable when I put them in or dry out when wearing all day.
After those 2 months though, the contacts became much worse- from the same box. They would last a week, if that, before becoming bothersome when I put them in and be extremely dry by the end of the night. During the winter months, the problem only became worse, with my eyes becoming red at times and very dry. I work at a computer all day, and this was unacceptable. My previous contacts had never been this bad. I tried different lens solutions, I tried new boxes, and the only solution was to make sure I was in an environment that would not be dry at all, or switch lens. So I will be making an appointment at the eye doctor and trying out something that, for my eyes, does not dry them out.

Acuvue Advance Lenses
Strengths: Comfortable and breatheable
Weakness: None noticed at this time
I have dry, sensitive eyes and hated wearing contacts in the past. I've been using Acuvue Advance contacts for about 1 month now and notice that my eyes are not as dry and red as they have been in the past. They are comfortable enough to keep in for extended periods of time. I would highly recommend Acuvue Advance contacts.

Strengths: Very comfortable
Weakness: Don't quite last for full 2 weeks
I've been wearing Acuvue Advance for 2 years now, and I'm very happy with them. They are very comfortable in my eyes, and I got a great deal on them through a PriceGrabber listing. I've also tried Acuvue Oasys and Biofinity, but switched back to Advance this time - I didn't feel any improvement in comfort with Oasis or Biofinity over Advance, and Advance lenses are 50% less expensive.

Acuvue Advance contacts
Strengths: They last for two weeks, minimal care involved.
Weakness: Towards the end of the second week, they begin to dry out and it is rough on the eyes. I usually switch to a new pair before the two weeks are up.
These are excellent contacts; perfect for new users! I would definitely recommend them to anyone. They fit comfortably and require minimal care -- I only put them in no-rub solution at night. I teach swim lessons and they don't irritate me at all when I wear them in the pool. I have even swam laps with them on before -- with goggles of course :)

Weakness: not available in -0.25
I used a different brand in the past and these are a lot more comfortable. They also are easy to see if they are inside out. The price is great too.
