MyDay: Review, Pricing, and More

CooperVision MyDay Review.

Are your eyes dry, tired or irritated after a long day of contact lens wear? Are you looking for a premium daily lens option that has great UV protection and uncompromised comfort? If so, you should consider trying CooperVision’s MyDay® contact lens!

Note: Some eye doctors carry this lens under the brand names Kirkland Signature™ or LensCrafters® 1-Day Premium.

Introducing Smart Silicone™ 

To start, MyDay® was first released to the US market in 2015. CooperVision’s patented Smart Silicone™ technology allows this lens to provide you with a soft, flexible contact lens that doesn’t compromise on moisture or comfort.

In fact, made of only 4.4% silicone, MyDay® contains the lowest percentage of silicone found in any daily silicone hydrogel lens.

Note: Too much silicone decreases the flexibility of a contact lens, making it feel harder on your eye.

Also, at its silicone hydrogel core, MyDay® is made up of 54% water content. To keep your eyes hydrated, it has a water-loving (i.e. hydrophilic) design. Plus, it has 85% UVA and 96% UVB protection!

Overall, MyDay® provides you with the benefits of a premium silicone hydrogel daily lens without compromising on ease of use, softness, or comfort.

Powers, availability and more

MyDay® lenses are available in powers ranging from -12 to +8. Therefore, it is designed to fit a large range of contact lens wearers. Also, MyDay® contains Smart Silicone™ technology and has a light blue visibility tint that makes it easier for you to put in and take out.

When fit with MyDay® 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 conveniently available for purchase in 30, 90, and 180-day lens 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!

According to CooperVision:

  • 82% of practitioners would prescribe MyDay® as their preferred 1-day contact lens.
  • 9 out of 10 patients feel that MyDay® is softer on the eyes than their habitual contact lenses.
  • 60% of practitioners prefer MyDay® handling over DAILIES TOTAL1® for their patients.

Are MyDay® lenses right for you?


  • Smart Silicone™ technology for a soft, flexible lens that doesn’t compromise on moisture or comfort.
  • Excellent UV protection (85% UVA and 96% UVB).

  • Not available in a multifocal lens option yet.

As previously mentioned, these lenses aren’t cheap. Costco carries this lens under the private label Kirkland Signature™ while LensCrafters carries it under the private label LensCrafters® 1-Day Premium. Both private labels help reduce your cost to purchase from these retailers!

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 ~ $55 – $65 a box.

Also, don’t forget about the rebate!

Final thoughts

Softness, ease of handling and comfort are three things that come to mind when I think of MyDay® contact lenses.

In particular, the Smart Silicone™ technology behind this lens is impressive! Silicone impacts the stiffness (i.e. modulus) of a contact lens and MyDay® contacts have the lowest percentage of silicone for a daily silicone hydrogel lens. As a result, this provides you with a soft contact lens that is often considered easier to handle than DAILIES TOTAL1® (which some people have trouble putting in and taking out). 

On the other hand, both DAILIES TOTAL1® (156 @ -3.00) and ACUVUE OASYS® 1-Day with HydraLuxe™ (121 @ -3.00) have higher oxygen transmissibilities (i.e. Dk/t) than MyDay® (100 @ -3.00). Therefore, they’re (arguably) considered more comfortable options. Regardless, both of those lenses are (on average) more expensive options, especially since Costco and LensCrafters offer MyDay® as a private label lens. As a result, trying MyDay® is almost a no-brainer!

Lastly, MyDay® toric is now available for patients with astigmatism that are looking for a premium daily lens option. All CooperVision needs is a multifocal option to complete the MyDay® family!
