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 read the good reviews and thought I'd give these a go. I may as well have thrown �15 in the bin; certainly after 3 tries, these lenses are going in the bin.
I will say that they might be good for people who have no issues with contacts. In hindsight, given that I already struggle by the end of the day with Focus Dailies (glued to eyeball, dry eyes etc), I should never even have tried these. I could feel them in every second, they itched, they hurt my eyes, they dried them out - wearing them was like wearing grit in my eyes. I'm going to switch up to a more expensive brand; it's just not worth the discomfort.
TL:DR: You get what you pay for.
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.
