ps i damn lazy to search within this thread. i know sure got ans somewhere but damn lazy
previously was contact lens user, using biofinity. but it was way too dry for me. also feel that the shop that i bought from i think not good service.
now i wan to buy contact lens again. so my qns...
where to do test? (only able to do in sg. not JB or others.)any optometrist will be able to perform a lens selection for you after a proper eye exam
where to buy? lenses should not be bought. they are not a consumer item. THEY ARE PRESCRIPTION ITEMS. You should not have the thinking that it is bought because they are not cosmetics. They are effectively medical devices.
best hydrating lens yet affordable? like biofinity kind of price one.Hydrating or not is not up to you. the optometrist will determine if the lenses are suitable for your after trying different kinds of lenses (diff brand, diff design) on your eye. They must observe how each lens perfom on the eye surface before making this decision
After reading this thread, i went to NP to do my contact lens fitting. Everything went fine and I was recommended Acuve Moist for Astig. Everything was fine at the fitting session and I was told that the lenses fit me very well.
However, upon trying the next 2 pairs of trial lenses, i noticed quite a bit of discomfort. It feels a bit tight and my eyes get dry very quickly. I had to rewet my eyes almost every hour. Also, my vision will turn a bit blur upon blinking...
I suspect I might have to try other brands. Where can I go to buy cheap trial lenses?
if you wanna try another brand. ask your optometrist to try it on you. lens fitting is not a 100% hit. regular follow ups need to be done to determine if that lenses really suit you or not. nothing in this world is 1 shot 1 kill. if you looking for cheap, don't expect good service.
as the hokkien saying "ai pi gu ai qi". Very hard to achieve.
Bro, what are you talking about?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the service. I am asking where I can get trial lenses instead of buying a box x30 without knowing if they would fit me well.
trial lenses come with contact lens fitting. you go to an optometrist to do it. If we think it fits you. we can prescribe it to you. either sell you a box. or if we are in a good mood, give you free trial pairs. In singapore, no one pays for the lens fitting, therefore if people ask for trial lenses, it pisses us off.
means cannot buy trial lenses lah? must go do fitting, then if they prescribe x brand, then must buy 1 box of x brand?
wah lan, like that trial and error waste of time and money. I thought can buy loose trial pairs for like 5 bucks or something.
Many of you have recommended going down to NP for an eye examination and lens fitting for first-timers. However, they only accept appointments during their teaching weeks. I wanted to book an appointment but I just found out that their last teaching week was this week, so the earliest I can book will be 2 months later in October. Also, I heard that SP does not provide such services anymore.
Are there any other qualified places I can go to get my eyes properly checked and fitted for my first pair of contact lenses?
Retard you can blind people with these kind of advice. Not all lenses are suitable for anyone. Moderators are not doing their job.
of cos buy it on your own risk.
these contact lenses are so far comfortable on regular basis.
not all brands in singapore are safe too.
i bought freshkon and i got eyesore the next day. it could have blinded me if i wore any longer wasnt it?
