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.

A definite improvement on the regular Focus Dailies and did what it said on the tin; I got an extra two hours or so`s wear from them. Would recommend for sure. Now trying monthly, all-day-all-night lenses so will tell you all what I think in a month.
I have tried all sorts of lenses over the years - wearer for 30+ years now - and find that these lenses are brilliant - I have tried others I can wear for longer but I always put my lenses in at 7.00 a.m. and take them out at c6.00 p.m so I can read the paper without my reading glasses! If I wear them for extra time (e.g. go out straight after work) or go into a really dry atmosphere (air con all day), stepping into the shower re-moisturises them so they are easy to take out. I have even slept in them and been able to easily remove them after shower!!!!
The first time I tried them they irritated my eyes almost immediately, perhaps as I hadn`t worn contacts for a while. However, after that they have been great - I`ve been able to wear them for much longer periods of time than previous lenses before noticing wearing them, and I have dry and tired eyes! Am re-ordering them again and would recommend, although I`ve only ever tried dailies so perhaps there are other better ones out there.
I have very dry eyes and wear lenses occasionally, like for the weekend or special meeting. I used basic Focus Dailies before but only for up to 6-8 hours, or my eyes would itch and hurt. With these lenses I can extend the wearing time to even 12 hours, which is fantastic. When I happened to forget to take them out overnight I suffered half the discomfort as when wearing the previous ones for a day. The cost of these really good lenses is amazingly low, which makes them the best value for money deal ever.
I will use these lenses until I find anything more suitable for my very dry eyes.
Plus, this is definitely the best website to buy lenses from.
I ordered the lens with the wrong power and therefore have to return it - but the service was excellent and quick! I got the lens straight after the day I asked for the exchange product!
I then tried them on today and at first I wasn`t really used to it as I haven`t been wearing lens for a long time, but now I just don`t feel like I am wearing any lens - they are so comfortable!
I will definitely recommend the product and the site!
Thinking this might be the same as Accuvue advance 2weekly, i was disappointed. My eyes do dry out with normal contact lenses but noticed that these contacts added more mositure, but unfortunately i didnt feel the benefit and will be returning to my usual in accuvue contact lenses
I suffer from quite dry eyes and for years have been using the daily acuvue moisture+ lenses. Seeing as these are new, I thought I would give them a go, big mistake! I wore them for a couple of hours today (2?) and it took me about half an hour to get the lens out of my eye as it was practically stuck! It was actually really scary! What a waste of £40. I would recommend the acuvue moisture + lenses over these any day.
