Dailies AquaComfort Plus reviews
Lisa Watt- 16 Jul 2021VerifiedLovely daily lenses so soft, you forget you have them in. Easy with no fuss to apply. Highly recommend. I will be purchasing again when mine are finished.
Rieke- 10 Jul 2021VerifiedVery comfortable contacts, suitable for dry eyes.
MAUREEN LOCKE- 09 Jul 2021VerifiedBest for me are Dailies, no clearing and no storage and therefore less chance for contamination. I don't wear them every day but as and when and it suits me to have a fresh pair as when i decide to leave the specs and go with the contacts.
