Disadvantages: A little too easy to damage
I should start this review by saying that I don't wear contact lense all the time, I only wear them for playing sports (mainly badminton) and for going out if I don't want to wear my glasses.
My contact lense journey began a few years ago in my local Specsavers. I had gotten fed up with going out on evenings out with friends and not being able to see clearly (I am slightly short-sighted and with a slight astigmatism - so everything is just slightly out of focus meaning I lose some fine detail) I hate wearing glasses as I find them uncomfortable and annoying and so I never used to wear them when I went on an evening out.
Specsavers let me try a few different pairs for comfort and I never looked back. That was until I was unable to get along to the check ups I was supposed to have every few months as I was unable to book during the days due to work and I could never get an appointment at the weekend as they would only book appointments 2 weeks in advance! Anyway, since then I have been getting my contact lenses online.
I had always been quite happy with the lense I was getting from Specsavers as they were nice and comfortable in the eye, so I decided to see if I could find out what would be most similar. After a good bit of searching it seemed to be the Focus Dailies so I ordered some to give them a try.
As with every set of contact lenses I've experienced, they came packed in strips of five lenses each in it's own foild covered packaging with a small amount of solution. I guess this is must be the industry standard means of packing them and I can see why. Theya re nicely protected as the plastic is quite sturdy, they fit together nicely and are nice and light from transporting about.
Upong trying the Focus Dailies, the first thing I noticed was that they had a slight blue colour to them which my previous lenses had not had. I wondered if this would affect the colours I was seeing with the lenses in but as soon as I tried them I realised it didn't seem to make any difference.
The lenses are very thin and soft and as such as comfortable in the eye even if you don't wear them very often like myself. I can go weeks without wearing them but don't having any problem when I go back to wearing them even if it's for an entire day.
The clarity of the lenses is very good and my eyesight in nice and crisp. They also don't seem to cause my eyes to water very much unlike some lenses I have tried.
My only complaint about the lenses is, I think, due to the very soft and thin nature of them. I find they can be quite easy to damage if I'm not careful and for example rub my eyes too much. This might just be me being rather clumsy and ham-fisted but I do not remember this being a problem with my old lenses.
Also I have noticed a small number of the lenses have not been brilliantly manufactured and have had slightly rough edges from the moment I've opened the pack, which has caused discomfort in the eye and required a change of lens immediately. I wouldn't say it's a big problem as I have only had a small number like this but it is a bit annoying at the time.
Overall I would say they are a good contact lense which is nice and comfortable to wear, even if you only wear them occasionally. They provide nice clear vision and don't cause my eyes to water or feel discomfort. I would certainly recommend them and I would give them 4 and a half stars if I could, however as I can only choose either 4 or 5 and baring in mind the fact that I find them a little too easy to damage I will give them a 4 star rating.
Summary: Certainly worth a try!
