I have naturally very dry eyes and was really skeptical about trying these, but decided to get a months supply to try out because, hey, worst case i've lost £14 and there's no way it could be the worst £14 i've ever spent.
I've been wearing contact lenses for a year, trialing 3 different pairs with a major high street chain before settling on a pair of medium range monthly disposables.
I barely notice any difference between these super cheap daily disposables and the double-the-price monthlys I was wearing. They definitely feel cheaper and thinner to hold in the hand, but you don't wear them on your hand! Once in the eye they feel like any other contact lens. I find with all contacts that my eyes feel sore for the first 30 seconds of having the lenses in, then I forget they are in for the rest of the day, sometimes only remembering to take them out once i'm in bed cause i've forgotten I even wear them. If I don't drink any fluid all day I do find they stick to my eye more, but then the same applies with the monthlys I was using.
As for the clarity, I again can't tell any difference between the monthlys I was wearing and these.
Excellent value for money. My advice - if you're not sure, buy a monthly supply and if you don't agree with them, then you know. If they work great for you, then you've found yourself the cheapest contact lenses on the net (and i've spent many an work hour in the office putting off work by searching for the cheapest lens)
I have never got on with contact lenses before as I found I would have scratchy/dry eyes. Even with the expensive 1 day lenses I could never go a couple of hours without wanting to rip them out and curse as they find their way to the bin. Tried these after a few years of giving up on contacts and I found them a little dry at first but then was able to wear them all day on the second day - something I have never been able to do before. 5 stars - free of the burden of glasses!! :) I don't think I have ever written a review on anything before but I thought this deserved the effort.
I used these contacts for sometime, approximately 1 year. They seemed fine to start with then I started to get dry eyes, itchy eyes and then sore eyes. I thought it was because I was tired with a small child. It wasn't until I went for my contact-lense check-up that I was informed that the base curve size was wrong for my eyes and was starting to cause a problem with blood vessels in my eyes. As long as the base curve is correct with these lenses I feel confident that they are a good lense to purchase.
Been wearing Acuvue 24x7 discarding every week for over 20 years. Recently switched to Acuvue Daily (Oasys, Moist, ...) so I could occasionally wear glasses. They're fine, but they've started to dry out towards the end of a long day.
Then I saw these Crystals advertised for 7GBP. Wasn't expecting them to be great for extended wear but if they were good for occasional use I'd be pleased.
I don't think I have particularly dry (or moist) eyes. And I've been very satisfied with these lenses. Container is as easy to open as Acuvue, yes they are very thin and you need to take care handling them and making sure they are not inside out but I had no problems. I've tried them for up to 12 hours at a time and they're fine - start to dry out a little towards the end, but then so did Acuvue.
In summary, I will buy more of these lenses.
Thought i'd try them after reading the reviews and seeing the cost. Unfortunately, they are not suited for my eyes. I found that my eyes were very dry, itchy and could only wear for an hour or so before my eyes were streaming. However, most other reviews state that they are great.
I have been using Acuvue2 for nearly 20 years, never really thinking to try anything else although ive suffered discomfort, dry eyes and ripping of the lenses with these ones and after looking at this site properly, I decided to try daily ones although highly suspicious of the quality due to the cheap price. I ordered just 1 box of crystal 1 day to try them out, plus my regular order of acuvue. After wearing the crystal ones for just 1 day, I am pleased to say that I will never go back to acuvue. I am more than happy with these lenses, i suffered no discomfort at all and thats coming from someone that wears lenses every minute that their eyes are open! So if you are thinking about trying these then I would say 'hell yeah - buy them'!
I can't believe I have been paying up to £40 for 30 dailies through Specsavers when these were available. I have been using them for about 6 months now and they are so comfortable. I put them in at around 6 in the morning and out again around 10 at night still wouldn't know they were in!
I even did that terrible thing of sleeping with them in as I forgot they were in and they were fine when I woke up I didn't realise I had done it until I put my glasses on and couldn't see! easily good enough for 24hrs including sleep. 10/10 why pay more?
ContactLenses.co.uk are great too, good delivery and easy to order.
I've had these lenses a few times now. First of all I thought they were great and didn't understand the bad reviews, but as time has gone on I have had so many problems with them. They are basically just not very comfortable. I've never had problems with lenses before and do not suffer from dry eyes, I just think due to the flimsier material used for these lenses they are less comfortable and more liable to tear.
My advice would be to give them a try for yourself. Personally, I'll be going back to Focus Dailies. Although these ones are cheaper, they're not worth the hassle.
I gave these a try as so much cheaper.
Sadly I found them uncomfortable, my eyes watered and I wanted to get them out quickly. So I have reordered my Focus dailies and will stick with them.
Service from the company however, first class as usual.
I've had just a couple more problems putting them in, but once they're in I can't tell the difference from focus dailies at all - not any drier, haven't caused irritation etc. I just ordered a months supply to test them, definitely going to order more now.
I am one of the fortunate ones who have had NO problem with these lenses. When I saw the price I couldn't believe it so I gave them a month's trial. Fantastic, all-day comfort, I quite like the fact that they are slightly thicker as they don't rip easily like my previous lenses. Still can't get over the price! Just ordered a three-month supply. Give them a trial and see if they work for you.
After using mega expensive lenses from vision Express I tried these and they are fine, it took a week to adjust to the difference but they work great now. I wear them for quite long hours but don't have problems with dryness unless it's late at night and my eyes are tired but thats fine I'll just take them out. During the day they arent dry. Brilliant product at a really great price.
