Alcon`s Dailies Aquacomfort Plus daily contact lenses contain triple action moisturisers for increased comfort in daily disposable lenses, with a wide fitting range going up to +8.00 and -15.00 they allow more people to experience the comfort and convenience of daily disposable contact lenses.
Research has shown that end of day comfort is still the biggest concern for contact lens wearers. Alcon have addressed this problem by using the same ingredients found in artificial tears and rewetting drops PVA polymer, but they didn't stop there, - using a triple action moisturising system comprising of the compounds PVA, to offer extra comfort, PEG which works with the PVA to allows the lens to refresh and moisten the eye every time you blink and HPMC which is a cushioning agent to provide instant comfort. This is why Dailies Aquacomfort Plus can offer a blink activated moisturising system, offering all day comfort every day.
Alcon uses a unique LightStream technology to bring these three elements together offering the wearer quality and consistency for all day comfort with every lens.

Good question, they all appear to be very similar, well at least in name. The Dailies range of daily contact lenses are all from the same company Alcon, they are all daily disposable contact lenses and offer all day comfort, however they are not all the same.
Dailies All Day Comfort contains Nelfilcon A (with added PVA), which offers does offer all day comfort but Dailies Aqua ComfortPlus has the added benefit of HPMC and PEG offering triple action blink activated all day comfort, both have 69% water content.
Dailies Total is a different kettle of fish, these lenses are a silicone hydrogel daily disposable contact lens with a core water Content of 33% and a Surface Water Content of approx 80%, the highest breathability of any branded daily disposable lens*, which is great news for contact lens wearers who suffer from dry eyes.
Unfortunately not, but Freshlook One Day Colors are from the same manufacturer and come in a choice of 4 colours and a power range from -0.50 to -6.00, however a very similar coloured lens is Freshlook Colorblends, although a monthly lenses they offer a much wider range of colours 12 in total and ranges from +6.00 to -8.00 so available to many more contact lens wearers.
Dailies AquaComfort Plus fit through most standard UK letterboxes, however they are approximately 30mm deep before any outer packaging and do not fit through all letterboxes, if you want to be sure of a contact lens delivery that you wont have to stay in for then check out the Crystal range of contact lenses at just 13mm deep before outer packaging they fit through even the slimmest letterbox, so no need to stay in or collect from the post office.

...they often seem to come out of the peel-off packet inside out. So you put them on your eye and realise the problem, and then have to take them off again and turn them around. By the time you have done this they are a little irritating to the eye when you put them back on again due to lots of handling.
Maybe this is a problem with all lenses though?!
Didn't get on with these at all - suffer from dry eyes & found these deeply uncomfortable after an hour or so. Taking them out involved practically peeling them off my eyeball, also had a nasty incident of getting one stuck under my eyelid. Back to Biofinity for me.
Absolutely love these lenses! No dry eyes, can wear for more than 12 hours. I travel a lot on business and these never cause issues on planes and never dry out no matter how long I am in air conditioned environments. They are the most comfortable lenses I have ever worn, I cannot tell that I'm wearing lenses. I thought I'd try cheaper brand to test other brands and I was so disappointed, wore them for 2 days and had to order these again. Will always stick with these.
I have normal to dry eyes and very high preseciptions (-6.0).
Got these dailies to take on safari, and they were very comfortable. I was in windy, sandy, dry condition, and I used for 12 hours each day and they were as comfortable as my permanent lense!
Very great product, will buy again.
I have been using these lenses over a year now, living in a hot and somewhat dusty climate I have found these lenses great in staying moist even after long hours of use. I suffered from dry eyes in the past and since using these lenses haven't had any problems at all. The website is easy to use, delivery is very fast - all in all I am very impressed.
These lenses were not for me. Was never sure if I had them in the correct way and they made my eyes very dry after a short period of time. They also split on numerous occasions (from bumping my eye, inserting and taking out!) Will be looking for something else more suitable.
As a committed Focus Daily buyer for the past 4 years I took the plunge and decided to buy a 3 month supply of this Aquacomfort version instead - I am 100% happy that I did - I work in media & find myself behind cameras & operating equipment or infront of screens for up to 20 hours a day also in studio environments where there is either A/C running or it gets really hot and dry under warm lights - these lenses kept my eyes moist and comfortable. I also do a lot of long distance driving and had no probs wearing these for up to 13 hours straight - they go the distance! If you like the normal dailies buy these and you'll be even happier! :-)
I've found these lenses to be very comfortable and also robust ( I tend to rub my eyes when in the shower - something that would result in a lost Johnson & Johnson lens) . The main advantage for me is that these lenses fare very well in the dry dusty conditions of Abu Dhabi - where I have had no issues wearing theses lenses in the desert for long stretches at a time.
Ok, regular user of the normal focus dailies for 8 years now and they did work but things change i guess. Recently over the past couple of months my eyes changed and they are much dryer than normal, happens every time i wear the normal focus dailies my eyes would become red and itchy i could only wear the contacts for a couple of hours, then i had to take them out. It got so.. frustrating so i stopped wearing them and turned back to my glasses. I done a bit of research on the contacts, and made my purchase i got the Focus Daily Aquacomfort Plus they are honestly 10 times better i don't have the itchy eye syndrome when i wear them and at the end of the day they are as moist as when i first put them in. It pays to research the best lenses for you i work with air conditioning, and lots of dust particles for up to 8 hours a day. Hope this review helps.
