Both Dailies Total 1 and Biofinity are contact lenses that treat nearsightedness and farsightedness. They each represent a family of contacts that correct for astigmatism, meet multifocal needs, and more, in addition to the base options they represent (for example Biofinity Energys, and DAILIES TOTAL Multifocal).

Aquaform Technology is a proprietary feature of Biofinity contacts. Aquaform is a collection of design elements aimed at retaining moisture and ensuring eye comfort throughout the wearer's experience. Biofinty claims that their contact lens delivers improved smoothness and the capacity to lock in moisture to prevent dryness thanks to their silicone hydrogel lens material formulation.

Aquaform has a high oxygen permeability as well as a softer, more flexible lens (known as low modulus). With its Water Gradient and Smart Tears innovations, Dailies Total 1 takes a unique approach to comfort.

Water Gradient is a unique lens design in which the outside parts of the lens contain more water than the core, resulting in a smooth "cushion of moisture" where the lens sits on the eye. Smart Tears Technology releases a lens-integrated component that is supposed to stabilise the tear film and, as a result, improve comfort.

Biofinity contact lenses have a monthly replacement schedule, while Dailies Total 1 contact lenses have a daily replacement schedule. Biofinity contact lenses are available in boxes of six lenses, while Dailies Total 1 contact lenses are available in boxes of thirty lenses. Biofinity contact lenses can be worn up to six nights and seven days in a row.
