Question Focus Dailies $80 for 2 30-pack expensive?

Today, I visited the optical shop to get a new pair of spectacles and decided on purchasing some contact lenses for the first time, just to use for special occasions where I don't want to wear spectacles.

I am short-sighted with both eyes being 200 degrees. The lady recommended Focus Dailies and she said must buy minimum 2 boxes (30-pack). So altogether, that's 30 pairs of daily contact lenses. She charged me $80 for them. My question is, is that too expensive?

I've never bought contact lenses before and didn't consult other people about it so I don't know what's the usual price.

Anyone has any recommendation for monthly toric contacts lens that can support astigmatism of -2.75 cylinder?

I'm currently using B & L Softlens 66 (monthly) . Would like to try out some lens as i don't really feel comfortable.

dude, its either u have to go for permanent/yearly toric CL or Rigid Gas permeable/ Hard CL for ur -2.75 DC.

Alternatively u may wanna try for a compromization of ur astig to -2.25 DC as most current CLs for Astigmatism are only up to -2.25DC

bro, if its Focus Dailies Aqua ComfortPlus, it will be RRP $45, thus u are looking at $10 discount. Thus my question for u to think about . This $80 does it include the proper CL examination and Insertion n Removal Patient Education process?

hmm but how is it possible for only 1 side of my eye to be sensitive?
Sensitivity could be due to the possible adherence of proteins, dust n dirt or even micro organism on ur CL surface. Where ur Maxieyes if i am not wrong is just a color lens without surface treatment other than color pigments.

When ur eye are dry so are the CL on ur eyes, thus, these plastic monomer will increase the friction on the eye surface ... creating more mechanical rubbing that would lead to surface abrasion and irritation, which in turn cause the eyes to be red and inflamed. having it on 1 particular could either be the CL is more "dirty" on that side of eye or perhaps ur hands or other thing had exerted additional irritation to it.

I buy from eyelookgood.com

Please go for regular eyes checkup to know your eyes condition before buying from there.

I buy B&L from there cos its cheaper than than optical shops and their expiry date is normally longer. (2-3yrs). Those I bought from shops, only a year plus.

But do remember to get a proper CL examinations done for you before u proceed for bulk purchase online...

Remember: online CL price may be very cheap,.. however a visit to the Eye Doctors are darn expensive... and the health of ur pair of eyes.. Priceless...

is it new brand in S'pore? I nv hear before.

I'm currently using B & L Softlens 66 (monthly) . Would like to try out some lens as i don't really feel comfortable.

my optical shop let me try B&L trial pair and my astig for specs is more than 3.00... means roughly I should put contact lens for astig 2.5 or 2.75... so same as you.

I also feel uncomfortable using B&L...... the lens don't seems to be able to rotate to the correct Polarise (angle). I think is becoz my eye balls are small. I feel good wearing acuvue lens, the max is 2.25.. I feel that I have perfect eye sight wearing that.

Tried dailies (Acuvue), max is 1.75, also quite clear leh.

$38 is box of 30s, i use daily lenses.
$35 is for monthly, box of 6, i have some asti (0.75), the shop is trying to sell me @$70 for box of 6.
Since its new, i just try 2 boxes of daily lens first before buying 6 months supply.
