Some Crystal Aqua powers are not available at the moment. If your power shows on the drop down list then you can order as normal. We recommend Soflens Dailies Disposable as a suitable replacement if your power is missing.
We feel we know what our customers want in a contact lens, affordability, comfort, reliability, and availability, so we tested a lot of daily contact lenses over the years, before we settled on Crystal Aqua Daily and we can confidently say it is the best of them.
This daily contact lens has a Hyaluronic moisturising agent embedded in its core, which acts as a powerful wetting agent - giving you great comfort from the moment it is put in, to the time you take it out. Crystal Aqua Daily is a superb contact lens for dry eyes and our in house trials often came back with the comment that this is the first contact lens that cannot be felt in the eye.
Designed to be an easy direct replacement contact lens for 'branded' contact lenses for example Focus Dailies Aquacomfort Plus and 1 Day Acuvue Moist.
Crystal Aqua Daily contact lenses have all the benefits of a recognised brand, comfort, convenience, and reliability but at up to 50% cheaper.
Our Crystal contact lenses come in a slimline box so are letterbox friendly, however, we have not compromised on the size of the blister, we retained the full size blisters for easy lens removal.

I've been purchasing lenses that cost about 4x this much. Tried these out since I wanted to have some cheaper emergency lenses, and they're actually significantly more comfortable than my main lenses. So I'm switching to these. They are pretty lightweight, which does mean they're not like an 18 hour lens and sometimes dry out. But for the price, and just needing rewetting drops for longer days, it's well worth it. Really happy with these lenses.
I started using these lenses 5/7 days for about 8hrs per day. I love them, they stay hydrated for the full day and if I need to wear them longer then they're easily refreshed with lubricating drops. I've been using them for a year without issue. The packaging is a slight downside, but I find if you snap them backwards rather than tearing then they separate easier.
I love the Crystals, they are slim and not slimy, like so many other contact lenses I've tried - recently the Crystals were out of stock and you kindly gave a replacement, but thank goodness Crystals are back in stock! I find many lenses thicker and they have a slimy feel and it's as if they are moving around during the day, instead of being able to wear my lenses all day I find I'm having to take them out when I get home as they are so uncomfortable and my eyesight is not sharp - thankfully Crystals are back in stock, so I have ordered more and will be very pleased to wear them again, I have never had any problems with them!
Having used another brand for 20 years plus I was apprehensive about trying Crystal Aqua. There was no need to be. They are easier to insert and remove by far than my normal lenses. Absolutely crystal clear vision and I can wear them from early morning til late at night without any issues.
As others have said the packaging could be better but I have overcome the initial issues.
I have just ordered another 4 months supply.
Lenses are comfy and do not dry my eyes out but the packaging is not great, the box they come in does not fit in my post box making it difficult for delivery and also the strips are awful to tear apart resulting in the contact blister next to it splitting open and leaking thus drying out the lens inside resulting in me having to throw it in the bin, please make your blisters easier to tear open.
If I could give a zero star rating I would do. Decided to purchase these contact lenses as they're cheap. MISTAKE they're are cheap for a reason. Impossible to tell whether they are inside out or not. A lot of the lenses had nicks in them, so unusuable and some had to go straight in to the bin. Also to seperate the lense pack from the rest of them I had to use scissors. As if you try to tear them off by hand you'd end up splitting the rest of them breaking their seals and they had to go in the bin. AVOID at all cost and spend a little bit more money on some better lenses...
I am sorry to hear about your negative experience with Crystal Aqua.
To date, we have sold hundreds of thousands of Crystal Aqua lenses to thousands of fully satisfied customers. Crystal Aqua are a very high quality lens at a great price - but, unfortunately, for a wide variety of reasons, not all lenses suit all customers.
We have a full money back guarantee just for these rare occasions where customers are not fully satisfied and we will be contacting you to arrange a full refund.
Once again, we are sorry Crystal Aqua did not work out for you.

Ordered these because the Crystal 1 day lenses were out of stock in my power. These lenses were not a good replacement. The package wasn't well made and I had to use scissors to separate them. The lenses are also very thick and seemed poor quality. Some lenses were stuck to the packaging so they split when I took them out. They also gave me blurred vision which resulted in headaches while working. I had dry eyes after a few short hours. This doesn't happen when I try other brands so I wouldn't recommend these at all. Reply from CLS: Thank you for your review and I am sorry these were not suitable. A member of our team will be in touch to discuss this directly. Kind regards Contactlenses.
I find the packets quite difficult to split apart, in fact, scissors were required. They are also not good in terms of prescription strength, I find it difficult to focus and my vision is blurry when normally (with glasses or another brand) I have no issues. I've since bought an alternative brand at the same prescription and they do not have the same issues at all.

Well, i was a little dubious about trying these as i had never heard of the brand before, iv tried many many brands and always preffered focus dailies aqua. But didnt like the price tag that came with. After trying these for one day i can honestly say these will now be my go to brand. So soft and light, no dryness throughout the day, no blurryness size shape and prescription spot on. Im not one for leaving reviews but felt i needed to on this. Id give 10 stars if i could.
These are very good replacement for a more expensive brand. Very easy to pop in and generally very comfortable. The slight downside is they are a little too big and I would much prefer 8.5. They don’t fit my eyes so well and on a couple of occasions have fallen out without me knowing for a while.
Having said that at the price I can afford to lose one or two. I will carry on for now.
Just discovered these on the internet and bought a month's supply with crossed fingers, encouraged by positive reviews on this site. Thank you previous and probably ongoing customers, I'm glad you encouraged me to try them. I'm very short sighted and usually use astigmatism lenses, as well as not being able to use them for close work as I'm losing my accomodation and have to use glasses at work accordingly. I don't know why, though, but I can easily read with the same prescription of lenses from Crystal. The spec is different to my Aquvue usual lenses but the lenses haven't been sloppy with blinking or rubbing my eyes and they were easy to remove after wearing for around 5 hours. I'll gradually increase my wearing time and see how the lenses cope, but even if I end up only using these lenses for sports, I'm really happy that they're on the market as good lenses at such an affordable price that I can start wearing lenses every day. Thank you!
I've tried five different brands of less expensive daily lenses recently and these are by far the most superior. Although still very thin and so tricky to put in, they are extremely comfortable once there. I can't feel them at all. I doubt I'll use another brand again.
