Lenses are fine, but once again have to endure an eight mile round trip to pick them up from my local sorting office as they do not go through the letterbox in the envelopes they use now to pack them in. Not to mention I cannot get them until tomorrow, which means having to wear my dreaded specs in the morning. Please Please bring back the letterbox friendly boxes....(the money I used to save on these lenses is now being used on petrol to go and retrieve them.) ....or I will have to think about buying my lenses from elsewhere, which would be a shame as I have used this company for many years with no problems .
I originally had been using the Crystal 1 Day lenses for years, which were good but had a few flaws, ie I found them drying & fiddly to put in.
These Aqua Dailies are brilliant. I’ve worn them now for about five months & am very happy with them. They definitely give longer lasting hydration to eyes & I find them easier to put in. They come in a more gel-like liquid, which I’m assuming gives more hydration & comfort.
A few reviews have pointed out that; 1. It’s difficult to tell if they are inside or out and I agree with that. The only way I can tell is that they’ll move around my eye more when they are on the wrong way.
2. The packaging has changed from a rectangular box to a flat, square box. I also agree that I much prefer the rectangular box. I’m guessing they’ve done this to save money on postage? It’s quite awkward to get the lenses out sometimes.
Despite a couple of cons, these Aqua Dailies are a step up from previous offerings. Fantastic offering from ‘Crystal’ excellent value too. I can now put my lenses in the morning & know that I’ll still be comfortable in the evening! Highly recommend!
First time using contacts so thought I'd try these considering they are really cheap, absolutely life changing. Took me a while to get them in but after a few tries I can now do it easily. They are really comfortable and I can't feel them on my eyes. Will be re-ordering.
Having been in a contract and just buying lenses from an optician for years, I decided to see if I could save money and bought 30 pairs of Crystal Aqua Dailies to see how they compare. If not comfy, not a great financial hit.
I put in my first pair this morning and they are so comfortable and cannot really feel them in my eye and feel a lot better than the opticians brand that was offered. Can use in office with no discomfort and are not drying out at all with the air conditioning which did happen previously.
So happy with this purchase and the price is amazing. Will be looking to order these again without any hesitation.
I thought I would try these as they get good feedback but they were very uncomfortable in my eyes and felt like they weren't sitting at all properly. It was also unclear whether they were inside out or not (whereas with my normal ones it's very obvious). A shame really but maybe they just suit some eye types and not others!
I rarely, if ever, leave reviews - but to be quite honest, I'm pretty blown away by these lenses. For years I've used "branded" moist lenses, they were always okay, some days better than others, as my eyes are quite sensitive and problematic.
Anyway, on a whim I tried these - and crikey, they're great! I actually find them more comfortable, and my vision clearer, than the much more expensive premium brand.
All i can suggest is, if in any doubt, and for the price, give them a go!
I certainly have no regrets, and can only highly recommend..
They are a great price but it’s a shame they irritate my eyes. I haven’t had a day where both were fine, at least one of my eyes has been irritated (feels like scratching). More worrying is the that on two occasions I have just touched my eyelid due to irritation and the lense has came out my eye.
As title says not for me
I received these lenses last week. Shipping time was about a week to the US, not too bad. I have a slight astigmatism in my right eye but not enough to have to use a toric lens. These lenses are slightly bigger than what I usually use. Oddly enough though, these lenses felt really good in my right eye but my left eye felt like something was scratching my eye and after giving these lenses 3 days for my eye to get used to, my left eye was red and irritated. I contacted customer service and they didn’t hesitate to refund my money. I’ve ordered the Crystal monthly lenses and may try the Crystal One days. These lenses feel awesome on my right eye though (my dry eye and one with the astigmatism).
Fantastic Price! Good quality moist lenses! Comfortable to wear! Fast delivery (as long as they're in stock)
I have been wearing daily disposable contact lenses for over 20 years. 1 day Acuvue were the first brand that I used prescribed by my optician. Then I found this company contactlenses.co.uk and started buying my contact lenses here more than 10 years ago. I've since tried a few of their cheaper brands of contact lenses. CRYSTAL AQUA DAILY are my favourite and rival any more expensive brand!
I’ve worn glasses for three years but decided to try contact lenses for social events. I went to my opticians and had a free trial but found the lenses to be slightly uncomfortable and didn’t improve my vision. I was referred to this website by a friend, I was skeptical to order the lenses but I’m extremely happy I did. The lenses are so comfortable and you can see very clearly from the moment you put them in your eyes. Would 100% recommend them to anyone new to contact lenses and unsure about what to buy. Extremely worth the money and excellent quality!
I have been trialling one lense on my left eye for monovision (instead of wearing reading glasses) for a couple of months. My optician gave me acuvue moist so I decided to try these and the hydro daily to compare. The hydro daily felt like my acuvue moist, OK but a bit scratchy (you can feel them and I also get some blurring of vision ). When I put these ones in I couldn't believe the difference. My vision was much better for distance and close up and couldn't feel them at all and managed to wear them all day till I went to sleep. I didn't think a lens could make so much difference but it made me realise how uncomfortable the acuvue moist and the hydro were compared to these. I phoned customer service to return the hydro and they immediately gave me a refund. I have now ordered enough to last 6 months whilst they're on offer. 5 star lenses and 5 star customer service. Very very happy.
Well what can I say I switched first from Crystal then to Crystal Hydro and now To Crystal Aqua and these are far lighter in the eye really pleased with the result and such a good price I will be sticking with the Aquas from now on
Prompt delivery(within 24 hours of ordering). Long time user of contact lenses and the holy grail for me is to find a lens that does not feel uncomfortable. Despite the hype, expensive Brand Name contacts invariably feel uncomfortable. Have to say that Crystal Aqua 1 day Contact lenses, for me at least, during my trial period, appear to be the best of the lot in terms of comfort and at half the price. This is great the price of brand name contact lenses is increasingly prohibitive.
