Contact lenses

Postby stevetheosteo » Tue, 05 Nov 2013 1:52 pm

Not sure if this is the right section but can anyone recommend a place for contact lenses?

I normally get daily toric (Bausch & Lomb) from Lucky Plaza. It's $55 a box (so $110 a month) which is the cheapest I've found so far. Just wondered if anyone's got any other recommendations - monthly/daily etc but needs to be toric (for astigmatism).

Cheers

Buy from Johor bahru if you want to be more cheaper. A lot of singaporean by that in Johor bahru.

Check here: http://ezyvision.com.sg

I don't know how does their prices compare to Lucky Plaza, but after asking at few places here about prices I gave up and simply stock them when I am overseas. Prices for contact lenses in SG are like 3x to what I pay in my home country.

Thanks for the link! I tried picking up some from the UK but because I've been away a while they all wanted me to take a new eye test...which I probably should do but didn't have time. At these prices I'm really tempted to opt for laser surgery now - it'd pay for itself pretty quickly!

Thats the right price for Singapore, I have been to a few places and they are always around $55/box. I get them at The Bencoolen. Get them overseas if you want to save.

anvvv, I think you need a new keyboard as there is something wrong with yours. That or you don't mind insulting the intelligence of the rest of us by using a child's texting language. You are not sms'ing, neither are you limited by the number of characters.
