Crystal 1 Day Lenses

I bought a couple of boxes of these lenses to try them out based on previous reviews. Unfortunately, I was left with the opposite opinion. As soon as I opened the case, I noticed the difference in quality immediately. They were very tricky to handle and were not the easiest lenses to insert onto my eyes.

I have very dry eyes and so require lenses with extra water content. This was a concern to me, however, some previous reviews stated their eyes were fine with these lenses. My eyes didn't last an hour without screaming out in discomfort requiring me to use my drops more often that I normally do. I have persevered with them for 10 days and I am still experiencing the same problems.

The size of the lenses is my final issue with this brand. The 0.4mm difference sounds minimal but is quite noticeable once worn on the eye and I had trouble focussing a lot of the time and felt the lenses weren't working well together.

I shall be returning to my normal daily brand. At least I gave them a try but now know you definately get what you pay for.

Not for me

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.

Glued to my eyes

Having read the reviews below I thought these were definatley worth a try ... after 3 hours they were glued to my eyes ... It took me over an hour to get these out after this short amount of time. Absolutely awful

Red eyes!

I've been using daysoft for years and never had a problem with them. They have recently put their prices up so i decided I might try a different brand. Being a student these looked like a good deal... Now I am struggling to understand why there all these positive reviews on this brand!

After wearing Crystal for a few hours my eyes started stinging and felt like I had them in for days - they were gritty. I finally took them out in the evening and the next day they have left my eyes extremely veiny and can't stand looking at how red they are! They sting too - I think the contacts have completely dried them out.

Wouldn't recommend them based on this experience - its going to take a good few weeks for my eyes to recover!

Don`t believe the hype!

I bought a box of these based on the reviews, but i should have gone with my gut reaction that 7 per box was too good to be true...it is. I have since questioned the credibility of the reviews as i had such a bad experience with them. These lenses are only an option for people who wear their contact lenses for an hour or so, after this length of time the lenses become so dry and itchy that i have to take them out - i found myself getting through 3 pairs a day so it was a complete false economy. I usually wear One Day Acuvue Moist and have just logged on to reorder those as they are the only contact lenses that i`ve tried that give all day comfort. I`m very disappointed with Crystals, which are comparable to Focus Dailies in many ways but not as comfortable and i would`nt recommend them at all. Put the 7 towards some that you can actually wear!

Editors Comments: Acuvue Moist are made from a material called etafilcon A and Crystal 1 Day from a different material, Oculfilcon D. Both are common contact lens materials, but some people, especially with dry eyes, may suit one material more than the other.

Not for me

I know lot's of people have no problems with these but they just dry out far too quickly for me, by early afternoon they are sore and by end of the day taking them out is like peeling a grape! Worth a try for the price, but sadly just not for me.

Too good to be true

Unfortunately for me these lenses proved too good to be true. I saw the price and so thought i'd try them, they weren't being offered on a trial so i bought just one box as my eyes are both the same prescription.

Day one was fine, but day two and a new pair in they started to dry out. Day three was very uncomfortable again, day five I took my specs to work as I had all but lost faith in these lenses.

My advise would be to take up the offer of a free trial but dont order them to replace your current lenses until you have tried them.

I will be sticking to my ever faithful pro clear 1 a day as i've used them for years with no problems.

Crystal 1 Day

I cannot wear these lenses. They are too thick and my vison is blurred. I have been wearing contacts for 7 years. I suppose you get what you pay for. Easy to open pack, but not or me.

Returned !!

Not great, in my experience. Returned to contactlenses.co.uk for a refund (thank you!)

Several damaged and torn lenses before even being removed from the packet.

Ouch!!

I have wearing lenses for years and have never had a problem with irritation even if by accident ended up sleeping with them still in. The lady on the phone asked if I had tried these new ones and as they are so much of a bargain I did.

After 3/4 hours in my eyes they made my eyes itch and get really really sore. I thought it best to try them as they are half the price of the bigger brand but for me just too painful even for a night out.

Have never had a problem with ordering from this website, even have had the wrong lenses sent out but replacements sent out same day recorded delivery.
