Freshlook (from Ciba Vision) monthly colour lenses for MYR110 (3 pairs) (this one was based on buy two, free one promotion).

Biomedics (from Cooper Vision) monthly toric lenses (for my astigmatism) for MYR240 (7 pairs) (based on buy 6 pairs/2 boxes, free one pair). This one needs to be ordered in advance because they don't have the prescription readily over-the-counter.

I think it is worth it. But if you're travelling all the way to JB just for these, I wouldn't recommend going through the hassle.

Hope this helps for comparisons.



Thanks for sharing.

May I know the name of the opitcal shop & the mall in JB?

I rarely wear contact len. Any brand for 1day contact lens that u will recommend?

Looking forward to hear from you..

Hi this thread is ages old! I'm still a Biomedics loyal customer and they do have daily types. Your question is a bit subjective. Any optical shop in JB mall will do (even the one right after immigration). Because I buy regular enough, I would go for good customer service and discounts as they will have my prescription so I can just call and order ahead and pick it up later.
