Dailies Total 1

 

Have you heard of these lenses? If not, you are missing out. With most patients, now complaining of dry eyes, it has become increasingly difficult to maintain good comfort and vision throughout the day in contact lenses, particularly when looking at a computer screen for long periods of time like most of us now do! Dailies Total 1 contact lenses allow oxygen to transfer freely through the lens and onto the cornea throughout the day. These contact lenses are silicone hydrogel lenses. Older generation daily disposable contact lenses were high water content lenses which meant that although very comfortable on insertion, the water in the lenses evaporated throughout the day and the lenses became tighter, and eyes became drier. Silicone hydrogel lenses allow oxygen to transfer freely through the lens, and as the dailies total 1 have a lower water content than hydrogel lenses, it means they do not dry out towards the end of the day.

Not only this, they are now available in multifocal prescriptions also. If you are a person who requires 2 different prescriptions one for distance and one for reading or wears varifocal glasses, you may have been told contact lenses were not for you, or you may have tried contact lenses but found them too dry to be practical. The Dailies Total 1 multifocal contact lenses are a game changer.  A study was carried out in the States by Mohinder Merchea OD, PhD, MBA to investigate the results of comfort and vision of these lenses. According to this study 90% of patients prefer the Dailies Total 1 to their older contact lenses.
