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
Ok so I read all the reviews on here before I bought these contact lenses and because the good reviews out weighed the bad I bought them. I can honestly say they are the worst lens I have bought by far they not only make your eyes dry but they are generally very uncomfortable lenses. I have tried several lenses over the years and these are the worst I have worn! Really do not recommend them and as the saying goes you pay for what you get ! And these really are cheap nasty lenses ! Avoid!
Editors Comment: We would like to comment that Crystal Monthly lenses are made out of Oculfilcon D 45% material (55% water) - the same material used in Coopervision`s best selling Biomedic 55 contact lens.
In some cases, as with all contact lenses, a particular lens will not suit the customer and an alternative lens will be more comfortable.
If the customer contacts customer support, they will be happy to refund.
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.
I'm really glad that I took to try these lenses. I don't feel them in the eyes like other lenses(that I love the most of them) I have tryed and it's more cheaper. I don't need anything else more, I found my best choice... ;))Thanksssss !!!
I purchased these as they are significantly cheaper than any other brand, but they are significantly worse than any other brand I have tried in both comfort and durability.
I can usually wear contact lenses all day with absolute ease, but with these, by the 6 hour mark, they start to become uncomfortable.
They should be relabelled as 2 week disposables as you will be very lucky to acheive a months wear out of them. I was used to getting up to 2 months wear with other brands with no problems.
Also, they are very fragile and can be broken easily from basic handling and cleaning procedures.
They are hard to resist at this price, but you will go back to your old favourites in the end.
A cheaper but inferior product.
Looking at the price tag for the 6month, i really didnt have much hope for these but been using them for about 2weeks now and i goota say they are as good as my older and more expensive ones. My last ones was around 70quid for 6months nd these were for 15quid. i use them for around 14-18hours a day nd i have to say they are equally as good as the more expensive ones. Perfect!
