Are you looking for a comfortable contact lens that helps with whiter, brighter eyes, and a healthier lens wearing experience? Do you experience frequent dryness or discomfort while wearing your contact lenses? Are you looking for an affordable lens option that was uniquely designed to remain moist throughout the entire day? If so, I highly recommend trying CooperVision’s Clariti 1 Day contact lens!
Note: Some eye doctors carry this lens under the brand name Fresh Day.
A refreshing daily silicone hydrogel lens
To start, Clariti 1 Day was first released to the US market in 2014. CooperVision’s patented WetLoc technology allows this lens to easily bind water molecules tightly to its surface for increased moisture and comfort.
At its silicone hydrogel core, Clariti 1 Day is made up of 56% water content. It has a water-loving (i.e. hydrophilic) design that provides your eye with outstanding moisture (i.e. wettability). As an added bonus, this lens has 50% UVA and 95% UVB coverage!
In summary, what does all this medical talk mean to you? White, bright, and comfortable eyes all day long!

Powers, availability and more
Clariti 1 Day lenses are available in powers ranging from -10 to +8. Therefore, it is designed to fit a large range of contact lens wearers, nearsighted and farsighted. Also, Clariti 1 Day has a complete family of products including lenses for astigmatism (i.e. toric) and presbyopia (i.e. multifocal).
When fit with Clariti 1 Day lenses by your eye care professional, you’ll receive a trial box that contains 10 contact lenses for each eye. In fact, CooperVision contact lenses have an e-coupon for a free trial that you can print out and show your eye doctor.
Once your prescription is finalized, these contact lenses are available for purchase in 30 packs and 90 packs. Also, as noted in the name, they are designed for daily wear and should be thrown away at the end of the day. Therefore, they’re NOT approved to be slept in!

What people are saying…
From the manufacturer
According to CooperVision:
- Clariti 1 Day allows up to 3 times the amount of oxygen through the lens to your eye (i.e. oxygen transmissibility) compared to the 1-DAY ACUVUE MOIST and DAILIES AquaComfort Plus.
From our eye care team
I find Clariti 1 Day to be a healthy and affordable daily silicone hydrogel lens option. Since they allow more oxygen through than their competitors, patient’s can really feel the results! Also, I like that they have a complete family of lenses and provide good UV protection. Outside of this lens not having a lens tint, I highly recommend Clariti 1 Day to anyone that is looking for a solid daily silicon hydrogel at a great price! – Dr. Ryan Corte
Clariti 1 Day is an excellent silicone hydrogel daily lens. I tend to reach for this lens when I want the breathability of a silicone hydrogel but the convenience of a daily lens. It has the best of both worlds! – Dr. Jaclyn Garlich

As mentioned above, these lenses are a reasonably affordable daily option. Many private practices are also able to take advantage of the Fresh Day private label from Cooper Vision. This further reduces costs for retailers and consumers alike!
Before purchasing them, the best place to look is at your eye doctor’s office. However, if you’re looking to price things out from home, consider checking out contact lens retailers online. Right now a 90 pack of lenses is going for ~ $40-50 a box.
Also, don’t forget about the rebate!
Honestly, this is the lens that I wear! It includes an entire family of daily lens options and is a great option for a wide range of patients. Not to mention, its reasonable cost without a compromise on comfort is something patients appreciate!
The material and breathability of this lens rank among the highest in its category. Also, due to its silicone hydrogel composition, those who wear it experience great comfort and a healthy exchange of oxygen all day long. As a result, trying it is almost a no-brainer!
Unlike lenses that are designed to signal discomfort by the end of the day, many patients don’t notice a difference in how this lens feels from morning to night.
Lastly, some of my patients feel that Clariti 1 Day toric for astigmatism takes a little longer to settle on their eye than other brands. But, this doesn’t impact their comfort in the lens during the rest of the day!
