Dailies Total 1 vs Biotrue
Medically reviewed by Sharon Copeland on 23 June 2021
Dailies Total 1 by Alcon & Ciba Vision and Biotrue ONEday by Bausch and Lomb are both daily contact lenses designed to be worn for up to 8 hours at a time before being disposed of at the end of each day. As daily disposable contact lenses, they provide ultimate convenience and a healthier lens wear option than monthly and weekly contact lenses. Dailies Total 1 is a silicone hydrogel lens which allows more oxygen to reach the eye, whereas Biotrue is non-silicone based.
