PRECISION1 versus DAILIES TOTAL1PRECISION1 and DAILIES TOTAL1 are two daily disposable silicone hydrogel lens manufactured by Alcon. While PRECISION1 is the latest addition to Alcon's daily disposable lens portfolio, DAILIES TOTAL1 has been available since 2013. In an announcement by Alcon in August 2019, PRECISION1 was slated to be a little bit cheaper than the DAILIES TOTAL1. With a different base material called Verofilcon A, PRECISION1 belongs to the FDA Group V-B (high-water content silicone hydrogels) and comes with Class-1 UV blocking while DAILIES TOTAL1 lacks that feature. PRECISION1 features SMARTSURFACE® technology while DAILIES TOTAL1 is furnished with SmarTears, a technology that is stabilizing the lipid layer of the tear film by reducing water evaporation. SmarTears is only available in the DAILIES TOTAL1 product line.

PRECISION1 is priced below the DAILIES TOTAL1 in the 90 lenses per box configuration and the SMARTSURFACE technology paired with UV blocking make this lens a strong contender.
