Daysoft Daily Disposable
Advantages: Very cheap, comfortable
After many years of wearing glasses occassionally, ie, at home and not in public, I decided that I'd had enough! My eyesight was getting pretty bad and it was getting to the point where I couldnt read the board in lectures, and I was having to wear my glasses everyday which I hated it! I'd been terrified of contact lenses for years after hearing horror stories from friends about ridiculous things like them getting stuck at the back of their eyeballs!! Anyway, I booked an appointment and got it all sorted. I was trialled with some Acuvue lenses and although these were comfortable, they are also so expensive!!
I did some research and looked around and discovered the Daysoft website. They claim to be just as good as the leading brand, but a whole lot cheaper, which is good! If you order 2 months worth of lenses then it works out at just £20 which is half the price as I was paying before! These prices also include delivery too so there are no extra charges on top of that!
The Daysoft website is really easy to navigate and it guides you through the process step by step. First of all you tell them what brand of contact lenses you normally use and from this they can tailor make their contact lenses to suit what you are used to. Once you've done that you simply enter in your prescription for your left and right lenses. And then you're done, just enter in your details and wait for them to arrive! It states that the delivery time can be up to 5 days, and I got mine in 2 days which was great!
They arrive in a really small box!! It about 5cm square and only about 1cm thick! I was surprised that a month's worth of contact lenses could fit into such a small box! There are no end of instructions on how to put them in which was great for me! I had only been wearing contact lenses for about a month so I was still pretty apprehensive about using them!
If you go onto their website they have a whole page with pictures and instructions explaining how to remove the contact lenses from the packaging and how to use them, they even have a video on there too to help! It's really simple! You simply peel back the foil on one of the contact lens holders, you place your finger into the solution and the contact lens attaches itself to your finger, you then rotate it and place it in your eye!
One negative, which isn't really a negative for me, but more of an observation! It says everywhere on the website that it is easy to open the contact lenses and that they are non-spill, and you won't spill any of the solution! In my experience, I have never NOT spilt the solution! It goes everywhere! There's only a tiny amount in there so it's not a big deal and it doesn't bother me at all, but to say it doesn't spill is ridiculous, I can't see any other way to do it, unless you are extremely careful and gentle with them! I even got my boyfriend to have a go and he spilt it everywhere too!
The lenses themselves felt perfectly fine! They are really comfortable to wear and I haven't had any problems at all with them! I get really dry eyes too and I was worried that switching to a cheaper brand might make them worse but I haven't had any problems with them at all, I notice no difference between these and the leading brand!
So all-in-all, if you wear contact lenses then these are definitely a good purchase for you! About half the price that you would expect to normally pay and work just as well as the expensive brands!
Summary: I love them!
