Proclear Compatibles are a monthly disposable contact lens from leading manufacturer CooperVision, made from a next generation, biocompatible soft contact lens material, they provide increased moisture retention and wearing comfort.
The secret behind the Proclear contacts is biocompatibility - the ability of a material to interface with a natural substance without provoking a biological response.
Because ordinary contact lenses are made from first generation materials, a biological response from the tears is activated immediately upon insertion, resulting in an accumulation of deposits. In a short period of time the contacts can become dehydrated and therefore uncomfortable. Not so with Proclear Compatibles soft contact lenses because they incorporate phosphorylcholine, a biocompatible material which mimics the eye`s natural cells, enhancing your wearing satisfaction.
CooperVision’s PC Technology™ - phosphorylcholine (PC) - which binds with water molecules in natural tears to create a “shield” of water around the contact lens.
Proclear Compatibles mimic your natural eye cells and help reduce the effects of your eyes drying out due to excessive screen time, air conditioning and other environments known to increase dry and irritable eyes, by locking in moisture to keep your eyes hydrated throughout the day.

Proclear and Proclear 1 day are from the same manufacturer - CooperVision - but they are two quite different contact lenses.
Proclear, sometimes known as Proclear Sphere is made from Omafilcon B and is a monthly disposable contact lens, it has been designed to be worn daily for up to 1 month and to stand up to the cleaning and handling monthly contacts have to endure.
Proclear 1 Day as the name suggests is a daily disposable contact lens made from Omafilcon A, this lens is designed to be worn once and disposed of providing ultimate convenience and the healthy benefits of a fresh new contact lens every day.
There are quite a few contact lenses that are great for dry eyes, so to recommend just one would be unfair. Depending whether you want daily disposable contacts or monthly disposable contacts will obviously effect the choice, as will the severity of the dry eyes.
If you are looking for monthly disposable contacts then Proclear is a great choice due to its PC Technology™ - phosphorylcholine (PC) - which binds with water molecules in natural tears to create a “shield” of water around the lens. Another option would be Biofinity, these are silicone hydrogel contact lens that have been designed to allow high levels of oxygen to pass through the contacts to increase hydration and comfort.
If you are looking for daily disposable contacts then you cant go far wrong with Focus dailies Aquacomfort Plus which contain a triple action moisturiser for increased comfort, or Crystal Aqua Daily which contains a Hyaluronic moisturising agent embedded in its core, which acts as powerful wetting agent - giving you great hydration and comfort throughout the day.

I`ve been using this specific lens for 20 years . The first order I made from here for these , I was mildly surprised by how `unrobust` they were and I certainly did not get anywhere near the normal level of wear I`ve known to expect .
The batch with my second ordering was even worse - seemingly they have the power to disintegrate into tears and splits , even making the dangerous journey from packet to storage pot , or mysteriously manage to deconstruct during that hazardous activity "sitting on eye whilst driving for 20 minutes" .
These things are not new to me so I`m perfectly fit to handle in an appropriate manner , but they give a whole new meaning to the word "disposable" - under the circs , I`m forced to look for another more reliable equivalent .
Editor: We will contact you and offer you a replacement order. Proclear is a long standing lens, and in our view, nothing has changed. Maybe just a faulty batch? Anyway, we will be in touch.
I've been wearing these lenses for more years than I can remember. My optician has recently tried out a couple of other types on me, but I've gone back to these, having found them much more comfortable. I can wear them all day and evening with no discomfort. They do tear quite easily, otherwise would have given 5 stars, but I generally manage to keep most of them in one piece for the month.
Like other reviewers I'm surprised by some of the poor ratings of these lenses, it just goes to show everyone's eyes are different.
I've used them for over 5 years now and I typically wear them for 12-14 hours/day. Only very occassionally do I suffer from a bit of dryness right at the end of the day.
Very disappointed. Tried it for the first time about a month ago.
Four lenses split:
Two split within the first two weeks
Another while cleaning in the evening
Last one split while driving last week
Dry eyes and uncomfortable by 3/4pm at work. Has not worked for me - will not use again.
These lenses are the worst lenses I have ever worn.Ihave been wearing lenses for 10 years and have tried many lenses,these are by far the worst,they are very flimsy,dry out very quickly after inserting in eyes and are extremely irritating.I have had to order another 3 months of lenses 1 week in to wearing these ones,so I am out of pocket as well as sore eyes.Do not buy these lenses as they are a complete waste of money.
These lenses are uncomfortable when first put on but do get better with time and can be quite comfortable later. However, they break ridiculously easily bought six month supply at the beginning of this month and two weeks in only have two pairs of lenses left, am well used to cleaning lenses and these appear to be very flimsy. Would not buy again.
I love these lense have been using them for just under a year now. Used to use proclear dailies but with cost wanted to try something else. These lenses are soft and easy to handle, i wear mine for up to 10 hours per day without dryness. SOOO comfortable. I found the transition from dailes easy due to same brand. I know some people found they tore when handled but ive found this not the case,as long as you handle them with care. Would highly recommend and as always fantastic service!!!!
I know there are a few bad reviews for these on this website, which suprises me. For me, they are absolutely superb. They are comfortable straight away, and remain comfortable even for extended periods of time. I can fall asleep in them and wake up without even realising they are in.
For me, they are perfect. They fit my eyes like a glove. I suppose everyone has different eyes and some lenses will be better or worse for different people. However I will never buy another type again. These are the ones for me.
These work well. I do long periods of driving and computing work, which can be a bit taxing for lenses. These are so thin and soft that they are a dream to put in and they are comfortable all day (12hrs+). Unfortunately they rip when being rubbed clean - I`d say they last about 3 weeks on average if that.
I wore these for 3 months and found them to be terribly irritating to the eyes. They made my eyes itchy and dry. I found myself blinking quite a lot. I thought it would wear off as i continued to use them but unfortunately, that did not happen. THis month i got some Softlens; Verdict; Much much better.
I have worn these contact lenses for 3 months and personally think they are not the best I have had. I dont think the comfort lasts as long as the ones I am wearing now ( I wear soflens). The water content maybe high but i wasnt highly satisfied. They are only convenient to wear for 8 hours max.
I was prescribed Proclear Biocompatibles 7 years ago, when I experienced dryness and irritation with other leading brands of soft contact lenses and I haven`t had problems since. As with the previous reviewer, I find them comfortable even after prolonged use. However, I sometimes had problems with tearing while cleaning, especially after wearing and rub-washing them for almost a month. Otherwise, no complaints.
Fab lenses, I can definitely wear them a lot longer than most other lenses I have tried, still comfortable after 14 hours which is great. No-one had specifically recommended them, but I liked the fact they had higher water content than most other lenses so thought I would give them a go. Glad I did!!
