    I use the dailies total 1 for outdoor activities but been thinking to fully switch in summer as I love wearing sunglasses

    I've been wearing Biofinity for as long as I can remember and it comes as a surprise to me that they are not listed here.

    • Martina Michelsen Lentiamo.co.uk

      Hello, I am not entirely sure why that is. The Biofinity lenses are among some of our popular lenses. Th reason could be that customers in the UK prefer one day contacts, and Biofinity lenses are definitely ranking as no. 8 Best regards, Martina Lentiamo Customer Service
