I'm getting fitted for contact lenses a third time, have had no luck with the popular lenses like Acuvue 2 due to blurring (which I guess happens from sensitivity to the contacts and/or my eyes drying out - I've tried all sorts of eyedrops with no luck). Does anyone here have fussy eyes and had luck with another brand/type of contacts?

On a related note, if I strike out on the contacts, does anyone have links to vendors that make wrap-around prescription sunglasses?

Thanks a ton

I used have big problems with my contacts drying out. I have found that Bausch & Lomb SofLens one day disposables work really well. You can even wear them for two days, most times.

Rx wraparounds (located in Utah, fyi) (this company gets rave reviews so look at the glasses before you look at where they're located - not much further away than Utah, really)

Hydro Curve

I have been wearing these for years. I now wear Rudy Project Ekynox when I ride. Great eye coverage. No dry eyes.

I wear FOCUS Dailies

My eyes are super sensitive. Focus Dailies are the absolute best - hands down - for contacts. You never have to clean them and there is no protein build-up because you throw them away when you remove them. This totally eliminated any blurriness I used to experience with other lenses. I wear a fairly strong prescription and they are still super thin. I use Unisol unpreserved saline to rinse them before inserting.

A side note - If you have an astigmatism your doctor may not want to give these to you. I have an astigmatism and can see perfectly in these even though they do not correct it. In fact, I've never worn an astigmatic lens.

I also have a prescription for Patanol allergy eye drops, which might be something else for you to look into.

Good luck!
