SG shops no diff meh? U go neighbourhood 1 and shopping mall see... one sell $80 other sell $90+... unless $10 is no big deal la. RM is 120... S$50! wah $30 cheaper for 1 mth toric. Go there buy looks good, but not sure if got mine on the spot since degree & astig high.

Casing no need wash unless you want to, but need to air dry, have to change once every 1-3mths.

I wearing monthlies now with astig, sucks, 1min clear 1 min blurred out... cmi, want to change to dailies already. But dailies astig 1.75 max, i 2.25, dunno if will big diff or not. Any advices?
is it becoz you wearing 8.7.... ask for 8.6.
It will be better as it can easily rotate for your astig.

Toric need to order, don't think any of the shop keep stock. I went to a few shops at JB City Square all told me need to order.

They are legit shops as far as I know, I mean they are not like some ulu optical shop on some street but in the shopping centre. The lenses should be supplied from the same source, the boxes are exactly the same for my focus dailies.

Focus dailies factory in Singapore. That's why packaging same. 8.8 means for flatter corneas. The higher the basecurve the flatter the cornea. Package is different if the lenses are for different region. Depends on individual lens companies.Case can be rinsed with warm water and soap every 1 week to remove any slimy stuff with a soft bristle brush. Hard bristle will scratch the case and would allow bacteria to grow. Even if u use aosept also try to use a soft brush to clean e case every week. Also replace case every 1 month. Solutions opened should be replaced every 3 months. Saline opened should be replaced after 1 month.

Ask your optometrist to do a lens fit for you lo. its required by the law anyway. get him to find the perfect fit for you before you buy lo?

Hi, just wondering which contact lens' brand do u guys recommend out of these 3?

Namely,cibavision,bausch+lomb,coopervision. Do state the specific names and price ranges of the contact lens.

I m looking for contact lens that meet the following requirements:
1) Monthly wear
2) Normal contacts lenses(without colours or astig)
3) Suitable for dry eyes
4) Suitable to wear for long hours

Hey guys, i have a serious question here..

as you all know that selling contacts lenses online is illegal.

How do i report a blogshop that is selling contact lenses?

The blogshop have been collecting order and i dont want to see our poor friend buying from that shop and getting eye infection or something..

found an article about it

ciba vision there is Focus night n day, air optix
bausch + lomb there is purevision
coopervision there is avaira, biofinity

All these in the 50-60 range and Focus NnD is about 90 plus if not wrong

BUT FIRST FIND AN OPTOMETRIST TO DO A PROPER LENS FITTING.
