Alcon`s Dailies Aquacomfort Plus daily contact lenses contain triple action moisturisers for increased comfort in daily disposable lenses, with a wide fitting range going up to +8.00 and -15.00 they allow more people to experience the comfort and convenience of daily disposable contact lenses.
Research has shown that end of day comfort is still the biggest concern for contact lens wearers. Alcon have addressed this problem by using the same ingredients found in artificial tears and rewetting drops PVA polymer, but they didn't stop there, - using a triple action moisturising system comprising of the compounds PVA, to offer extra comfort, PEG which works with the PVA to allows the lens to refresh and moisten the eye every time you blink and HPMC which is a cushioning agent to provide instant comfort. This is why Dailies Aquacomfort Plus can offer a blink activated moisturising system, offering all day comfort every day.
Alcon uses a unique LightStream technology to bring these three elements together offering the wearer quality and consistency for all day comfort with every lens.

Good question, they all appear to be very similar, well at least in name. The Dailies range of daily contact lenses are all from the same company Alcon, they are all daily disposable contact lenses and offer all day comfort, however they are not all the same.
Dailies All Day Comfort contains Nelfilcon A (with added PVA), which offers does offer all day comfort but Dailies Aqua ComfortPlus has the added benefit of HPMC and PEG offering triple action blink activated all day comfort, both have 69% water content.
Dailies Total is a different kettle of fish, these lenses are a silicone hydrogel daily disposable contact lens with a core water Content of 33% and a Surface Water Content of approx 80%, the highest breathability of any branded daily disposable lens*, which is great news for contact lens wearers who suffer from dry eyes.
Unfortunately not, but Freshlook One Day Colors are from the same manufacturer and come in a choice of 4 colours and a power range from -0.50 to -6.00, however a very similar coloured lens is Freshlook Colorblends, although a monthly lenses they offer a much wider range of colours 12 in total and ranges from +6.00 to -8.00 so available to many more contact lens wearers.
Dailies AquaComfort Plus fit through most standard UK letterboxes, however they are approximately 30mm deep before any outer packaging and do not fit through all letterboxes, if you want to be sure of a contact lens delivery that you wont have to stay in for then check out the Crystal range of contact lenses at just 13mm deep before outer packaging they fit through even the slimmest letterbox, so no need to stay in or collect from the post office.

This is the first time I have tried Focus Daily Aquacomfort lenses and I have just reordered them.. They feel very comfortable in my eyes and I am able to wear them for long periods without suffering dry eyes.
They are easy to lift out of the container although occasionally I struggle to place them in my eye and I wonder if they are slightly thinner than Focus Daily lenses.
I would recommend trying them especially if like me your eyes are tending to become drier as you get older!
These lens where recommended by my optician, and I have never had any issues with them, my optician charges a much higher price tho.
I have used this site multiple times over a number of years and never had any problems with either the lens or the service, they alway arrive on time and in good contition.
