everyone should go for a full eye check every 6mth-2 years depending on age, risks and own initiative.
Ah. Alrighty. Thanks a bunch for your advice!

Only have a pair of eyes, have to take care properly. Those who are looking for affordable contact lens fitting can visit NGEE ANN or Singapore Poly at $5 only. Might be a long process(1-2hrs)for some, but I kinda find it relaxing lol. Just sit there and relax, +1 if it's a chiobu attending to you.

Would like to ask some question regrading cleaning of lens. It it important to rub it both before & after wearing the lens? Sometimes very lazy to rub after wearing, so I just take them out and store it. But I always rub before I wear it.

They charges a small fee of $5 for the public and $3 for their students. Given my previous experience with them, they will contact you to confirm the appointment.
Just confirmed my eye test for this Saturday!

Was wearing Biomedic 38 last time and it was good and not much problem. Recently bought a new box but upon wearing found that this lens will give a blurry vision upon looking far(like next blk blk signage), last box was ok.

It is that my degree has gone higher? anyway my spect has the same problem too! See opp blk signage a bit blurry cannot see the Street XX underneath it. But my previous box of lenses was good no such problem.

When look at things near, there is no problem. Problems arise when looking far!

Yea AOSept is the best solution. But always remember to soak at lest 6 hour to allow the solution to neutralise. Must use the case provided if not it will not work. U must not rinse the solution with aosept and put it in direct contact with your eye. The cornea will burn.

Sounds dangerous. What if lens drop and is dirty and need to rinse and clean then worn straight after?

You can actually. When I was a student at SP when ppatients come with contact lenses we would do a lens fit for their own lenses to see if it fits them or not.
