I was spending up to �30 a month for contact lenses. I saw these Crystal Monthly�s, �8 for 3 months� worth, and thought I would give them a go. They are GREAT!!!! I can wear them for at least 12 hours, and they don't dry out at all, they don't even feel that dry when it's getting to the end of the month. I would definitely recommend these and I will continue to use them.
Cheap and best. Have been using them since last few months-no problems so far!
Before using these lenses, I have tried many brands (ciba vision and baush & lomb), I had lot of issues with them. Surprisingly, these lenses even though at low cost are much better than the expensive lenses I bought before.
I have now been using these lenses for 6 weeks and cannot believe how good they are.
Fot the first four weeks, I wore one crystal lens and one Air Optrix Aqua to compare ease/difficulty in insertion and removal to/from eye plus comfort in wearing up to 16 hours per day. The crystal won hands down.
For the last 2 weeks I have worn both crystal lenses and can report that they are superb.
The only reservation I have is their Oxygen permeability, I cannot find any data on that. Unless I find out something bad or there is a sudden price increase, I shall be buying these lenses in future.
Editor`s Comment: Crystal Monthly are the same material as Biomedics 55 and a similar oxygen permeability to Acuvue 2 and Surevue. They are an older generation material and as a result, do not have the increased oxygen permeability of the newer lenses that often contain silicone.
These contacts were comfortable and of course a great price, however; they broke so easily that my 6 month supply has only lasted me 2 months. I've worn contacts for yrs and never had that problem so despite the great price the value wasn't there since they didn't last me long.
These contacts are the worst contacts I have ever worn. After wearing them for two hours my head started hurting from constantly trying to sharpen and refocus my sight. For a few seconds I could see clear and then they started to blur. I checked if I order the right correction, it was that terrible (and yes I did, it were the contacts no error on my side). Never again. Editors note: are you sure you haven`t ordered minus rather than plus powers? Crystal are now available in plus powers.
at first i was a bit reluctant to buy at this price, but for 8 quid it was worth a try, and im very glad i did!
My eyes are really dry, i usually use biofinity. i was able to wear these for 5 hours before i needed to take them off. great value for money!
just started to use your company and can only say how impressed I am with your service and product, ordered on the Friday and was at my door on the Saturday morning wow, the contacts seem very good don't know they are in after only a couple of seconds unlike my old ones which took half an hour or so to settle down. again great service keep up the great work!
I have been using the daily version of Crystal and they are fabulous compared to these. They do not handle well at all and split very easily when taking in and out of your eye and the case. Also make my eyes very dry feeling and get really uncomfortable after several hours wear. Therefore what was supposed to be 6 months supply will probably only last half of that if I'm lucky so may as well go back to the dailies as these are no more economical to buy than those.
I thought I'd try these new lenses, even though they state that they are not suitable for people with dry eyes - if they were no good, I've only lost �14.50. But when I tried them, they felt so comfortable...I love them!
I do a lot of computer work and do get dry eyes, but even so they are very comfy and my sight is perfect. I've been wearing Specsavers Daily disposable lenses for a year or two now, and I can honestly say that these lenses are much better!
They are not tinted so are a little tricky to locate out of the packet, but that's the only drawback I can think of.
They are much thinner than my other lenses, so you do have to be careful when handling them, but perhaps this helps to make them so comfortable.
Obviously, everyone's eyes are different, but I would say they are definitely worth trying for �14.50!
I have been using these for a month and I cant believe how good they are. These are as good any any lens costing twice as much. I normally have these in for 10-12 hours a day without any problems. I would certainly recommend them.
The only complaint I have is that they could do do with a slight tint to make them easier to spot when cleaning.
These are the worst lenses I have ever worn.
I have been buying AirOptix Aqua for the last 2 years, and crystal monthly seemed quite a bit cheaper and had great reviews and thought I would give them a try.
For a start monthly is a joke - I can't even wear them for a day. They make my eyes dry and sore and gave me headaches. Within 3 days I realised I couldn't put up with them any longer and ordered my normal ones. Wish I hadn't even tried these - waste of money and time. Avoid.
I thought I'd give these lenses a go as they are much cheaper than my Opticians. I was very pleasantly surprised! I have been wearing lenses for years and have tried various different makes. These lenses are very comfortable,I have been wearing them for 12 hours plus daily, and my vision is still perfect at the end of the day. Recommended, I will definitely be reordering.
I bought these not knowing what to expect, as they're much cheaper than the ones I got from my optician. They're thinner and not tinted, and feel less 'rubbery' than my old ones- but they're just as good if not better. I can't feel them in so they don't bother me and my vision is wonderfully sharp. I hope these never get discontinued, because I'll be ordering more when I run out.
I ordered these lenses and didn't expect much, as �27 for a years worth of lenses did seem a bit cheap......I was completely wrong, I popped a pair in as soon as they were delivered as I had been using proclear lenses and they irritated my eyes. As soon as I put them in they felt comfortable, I've worn them all day since and am surprised, I've had no discomfort at all. Highly recommended
