Daysoft or Crystal Aqua?
I have ordered lenses from Daysoft for many years but as they are closed due to the corona virus I had to source lenses elsewhere. I was sceptical and also concerned about the quality of the lenses from Contactlenses.co.uk - after all our eyes are precious and I was worried about using a new product.
I checked all the information and details of their ownbrand Crystal Aqua lenses and decided to order. The lenses arived within 4 days. The lens diameter is slightly larger than my Daysoft lenses but this was not a problem. The lens cups are also slightly larger but i prefer the design to the Daysoft design. Daysoft introduced a new lens cup a few months ago which has a double rim and i often feel this rim is too harsh/sharp for the delicate lens to be scooped across. I sometimes struggle to scoop the Daysoft lens out (i`m not stupid or clumsy, I`m actually a nurse so i am used to dealing with anything clinical).
The Crystal Aqua lenses also feel very moist and comfortable on the eye when worn. My eyes can sometimes feel "gritty" at the end of the day but i did not get this feeling after wearing the Crystal lenses. I will use up my Daysoft lenses but I think i will be sticking with the Crystal Aqua ones from then on. Excellent value for money too, very slightly more expensive than Daysoft but worth it.
