Alcon have introduced the first 'water gradient' contact lens - Dailies Total 1.
Discover a new era in contact lens comfort. This new breed of lenses is designed with a surface water content of over 80%, nearly the same as the surface of your eye, for a feeling of exceptional comfort until the end of the day.
Dailies Total 1 has a silicone core of 33% water content that allows maximum oxygen transmission through the lens, sandwiched between a ultrasoft, high water content (> 80%) surface gel which provides exceptional comfort.
Dailies Total 1 is a daily disposable lens, so no need to get tied up in cleaning solutions and cases - simply wear them to the end of the day and then throw them away.
I was recommended these by my optician as an upgrade on the standard focus dailies.
These lenses are much better for the health of the eye, they do not get as dry so at the end of the day if I have been wearing them for a long time the eyes are less sore and never red.
They are more expensive than the standard lenses but worth the extra investment for the long term health.
Having been using contact lenses for several years I have tried a few other on-line services. However, it was not until I tried Contactlenses that I have yet had to complain because of an order discrepency - order has always been accurate and delivery prompt.
I have recommended Contactlenses to friends and family and have had no complaints yet.
I used to use one day acuvue and experienced discomfort during the day but I thought that was normal. Then someone recommended Crystal and I have never looked back. It is far better for comfort, ease of putting in and removing and my eyes are not red all the time like they used to be.
I found these lenses to be too big for my eyes. I gave them to my sister who had the exact same problem. I order the same size I always do in other brands so not sure why these are so large. I managed to get them in but everytime I blink I can feel them there. These lenses are ok, if you don't have sensitive eyes. I found these felt quite drying and irritating after a few hours. Other than that it does what it says on the tin.
I have been using these contacts for a few years now and it is my go to all the time. I can keep these in my eyes for 8 to 9 hours in a day and sometimes even longer and they do not dry out or become itchy or irritable. I sometimes forget I have contacts in my eyes in the first place, very comfortable. I cannot recommend these enough.
