The cost of monthly soft contact lenses has been steadily rising in recent years, making it more and more difficult for customers to afford them.
We have listened to our customers and searched the world for a low cost, trouble free monthly contact lens to provide our customers with the convenience of monthly lenses at the lowest possible price.
We have found a lens that has it all - Crystal Monthly.
With Crystal Monthly we bring you a lens that offers a multi back curve design for great stability and handling, a thin edge for all day comfort, an easy to open packet, UVA & UVB protection, CE and ISO approved for maximum safety and an easy direct replacement for existing monthly lenses on the market. If you are currently wearing a monthly lens i.e Focus Monthly Visitint, Acuvue two weekly, Surevue, Biomedics 55, Frequency 55, Soflens 59 , then Crystal monthly lenses would make a great low cost alternative.
Note: Crystal Monthly lenses are not normally recommended for dry eyes

Have you bought any contact lens solutions for your lenses?
This is the best price I have ever paid for a monthly contact lens. I have been using these for 3 years and have not found any difference to the big brands I have been using for the 5 years before that. So, I will highly recommend Crystal.
Also, contactlenses.co.uk has been fabulous. I order it today and it will be home tomorrow, without fail. Great service.
They just keep falling out. I got them 2 days ago and I have already gone though 3 of the ones in the box. Its really annoying. To start with I thought they were really good they were really light and I could see so all good. Then I went out with friends for dinner and I suddenly couldn't see. I went home and put the other pair on thinking I probably didn't put enough solution on them. nope they fall out again. and today my third fell out. needless to say Im not very impressed. I have to say though got them the next day after ordering them so quick shipping
I wear these lenses from 5am through to about 10.30pm and have bought them for a couple of years simply because of the great price.
I find them easy to handle and robust but after a few hours things do start to go blurry and I find myself rubbing my eyes after 5-6hrs. I'm not sure if its my eyes or these lenses because I had the same expereiences when I used to buy the cheapest specsavers equivalent.
If you own glasses and just want these for the bulk of the day then i'd recommend them but Ive spent the second half of each day squinting and struggling for focus. Kept on buying them though so the price must be right!
I was worried about using contacts because I have astigmatic eyes (so they`re rugby ball shaped instead of spherical) and thought they would irritate my eyes or fall out all the time. I decided to try these because they were cheap and I absolutely love them. I`ve been using them for several years now and I`ve not found a strong reason to try another brand. For the first day they are a little uncomfortable, but not enough to really hurt, more that you know they`re there. This is probably because I go long periods not using contacts at all though. I`ve only had one fall out once and that`s because I was lying down and rubbed the underneath of my eye, it caught the corner of the contact and it plopped out onto my finger. I rinsed it with some solution and it went back in really easy though. I will admit to sleeping in these, even though it does advise not to. I`ve never had a problem doing that though, they`re so comfy after the first day that you really do forget that they`re there. I will also admit to wearing one pair for a fair bit longer than one month, and even then I didn`t have any problems. The only thing I did notice is that when I took them out they seemed a lot thinner, so I wouldn`t be surprised if they had have broken after much longer. That was after leaving them in for considerably longer than a month though. I will say that if you have sensitive eyes these may not be for you. I have very resilient eyes, and I would imagine more expensive ones are better suited to more sensitive eyes. If yours are pretty average than you should have no problem with these though. I thoroughly recommend them.
Editors Note: We advise customers not to sleep in Crystal Lenses, as they are not designed for this.
For overnight wear, you would need a lens that allows a lot more air to reach the eye, for example a Purevision 2 HD or Air Optix Night & Day Aqua
I have used Crystal Monthly consistently for the last 5 years having upgraded from dailies, compared to other monthly brands i have tried along the way i have always found my back to using Crystal. I drive for a living and have never been let down by these contacts, sometimes wearing them for nearly 24 hours at a time including short sleep periods during the day. They never cause irritability or any issues aslong as my solution is kept clean. Would highly recommend.
Iv'e been using frequency 55 since I was around 16 (im 32 now). I have tried many other more expensive brands but they haven't agreed with my eyes so I always returned to them. Anyway I was told they where no longer available and to try these, theyre less than half the price so I was very skeptical so I ordered 1 box to try but wow I was totally wrong! These are really good lenses took a bit of getting used to on the first day but great from then on. I've just ordered a years worth!
Initially I was quite skeptical about buying these lenses as they just seemed too cheap to be true, I then started to read all the positive reviews and decided to give them a try.
The lenses arrived next day and were brilliant, comfortable and good quality, have been wearing them for about 2 months now and think they are really good and also great price,at only �£8.00 for 3 months worth of lenses!
After wearing them for about 11 hours my eyes do feel a bit dry and tired but I do work in front of a computer all day!
I would certainly reccommend these lenses though,rather than getting ripped off by high street opticians.
I have been using Cyrstal monthly disposable lens from past 3 years and they are so comfortable. I never missed my old Acuvue lenses. These are the Best and cheap alternative to super pricey lenses available in the market. Love these lenses.
These lenses are so comfortable that the only way I know if I have them in is that I can see clearly. Wonderful value for money too. The first time I ordered them I was cynical as to what they would be like but at that price I thought I'd give them a try. I can't fault them in any way, they're even pretty much invisible.
These lenses are great! I usually get contact lenses from Specsavers for �£13 a month and these do the same job for more than half that price! The only thing is that I have dry eyes but that problem can be solved if you wear you wear the contact lenses for less hours in the day and I found that a good solution helps aswell. Anyway, great product!
I've been using these contact lenses for about a year now, I changed over from spec savers and I can't hardly tell the difference I wear them constantly for a month and even sleep in them. There wonderfull for the price and well worth the money. This website is a fantastic way to get your contact lenses 5 stars for contact lenses.co.uk if your a first time buyer just order these lenses now from this site easy way to save a huge amount of money and still have full faith in your eye wear
I used the daily version for a month and they were great no problems at all.
I thought I would try the monthly ones as more price friendly.
I bought some Tesco multi purpose solution for them, no one seems to mention what solution they use with these !
Any way every day when I take the lenses out one eye or the other feels like it has got some grit or something under my top eyelid and its very sore and itchy to the point I cant open my eye.
They are fine whilst wearing them its just after removing them.
I don`t know if there is any difference in the actual lens to the daily one or whether it is the solution am using .
I am assuming it maybe solution as the daily ones were fine before hand. I wonder can you buy the solution that the lens in packaged in ?
also has what solution do you all use with yours ?
Editors Comment: It is liable to be the solution - the lenses are the same material.
Not all Multi Purpose solutions are the same, and it is possible that the one that you are using is causing an allergic reaction. This presents under the top lid and has the symptoms you have described. The daily lenses come in sterile saline, so would not cause any reaction - however, you cannot store lenses in saline overnight, as it has no anti microbial or sterilizing properties, so you are exposing yourself to a high infection risk.
I would try another multi purpose solution, possibly Complete Revitalens Multi Purpose solution. You can get it in a travel pack to try, before you buy a large bottle. ( http://www.contactlenses.co.uk/store/prdetails?entryid=66&priceid=158 )
However, you may want to go back to dailies for a couple of weeks to clear up any lid problem. If your lids don`t get better, see your optometrist for a check up.
