DAILIES TOTAL1 Multifocal versus DAILIES Aquacomfort MultifocalUpdated: Feb 7, 2020

We already looked at the comparison of the moni-vision lenses DAILIES AquaComfort Plus and DAILIES TOTAL1, so the focus of this comparison is on the multi-focal properties. And no surprises here. Both lenses offer three different ADD powers: Hi, Med and Lo. All other technical parameters are replicated from the moni-vision version. Except for the price: DAILIES AquaComfort Plus Multifocal cost $0.92 to $1.06 per day and per eye, while DAILIES TOTAL1 are about 30 to 40 cents more expensive and that means an additional $220 to $292 per year.
