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.

Biotrue ONEday reviews
Gemma- 22 Jan 2021VerifiedGreat for your eyes, really hydrating
Anastasia Gwendoline Harebloom- 19 Jan 2021VerifiedStarted using these as my old type that is used for years and years were making my dry eyes worse. After a bout of Bletheritus during lockdown my Optician recommended a change and I’ve not looked back, much more comfortable and no more Bletheritus either. It’s a big yes from me!
Michelle Jamieson- 10 Oct 2020VerifiedSuperior optics over other brands and no dry eyes as moisture content was higher
