I hate my glasses!

I always wear glasses, but recently, i find wearing my glasses makes me look retarded... So i got some daily contact lenses... Its easy to use but very ex! Imagine one pair one day...

So i was thinking of buying monthly or bi-monthly lenses... Any recommendations for comfortable and reasonably priced lenses?
Also, wanna noe the diff btwn these (apart from the fact that one can wear for 2 wks and the other is 4 wks) and since it can be re-used, are there any precautions that i must take? (e.g. caring for lenses, storing, any other things i must buy as well etc...) Thanks!

Re: I hate my glasses!

yearly lense is better cux it measures the size of your iris. so it's really comfortable as they are custommade. wheras different temporary lense have different diameter.. if too small, your eyes will feel the strain n will gt tired very easily. of cos the thickness for all lenses are different. i used to wear bausch n lomb mth contact lenses, but after a year i went for eyecheckup n the optometrist told me my inner eyelids are 'injured' cux the contact lense material too thick.. cux of the friction when i blink my eyes. then i change to another brand which is thinner n more comfortable. but if too thin like acuvue, your eyes will feel dry more easily, cux they cant retain the moisture. go consult an optometrist....

try saving some bucks...and go for the lasik treatment
Cebu Doctor's had very good equiptment for this matter and they had one of the Philippines best eye doctor...the price is also cheaper than treatment done else where,
there a direct flight from Singapore to Cebu via SQ

Re: I hate my glasses!

it is hard to change to monthly once you've used daily ones..
as in, you will feel uncomfortable due to the freshness of the contact lens.
previously, i used monthly, it was very troublesome and i had cloudy visions..
i still think daily is the best, just try to cut down your usage and you'll be fine

Re: I hate my glasses!

I don't wear lenses/glasses, hence I can't help much.
but you might wanna just have a browse at this Korean lens website for basic tips on keeping them in good conditions. (:
plus, their lenses are cool too. haha.

Re: I hate my glasses!

I'm using freshkon and bausch lomb, every 2/3 months change.
Price is reasonable and quite comfy.

Re: I hate my glasses!

Me too! It makes me looks so nerdy.
But what to do? I don't have the $ and am still young to go for Lasik.
Anyone knows the basic requirements for lasik surgery?
I don't think i qualify because my myopia less than 200!

Anyone can tell me avg cost of monthly lenses also?
I want to consider buying and wearing it. Thanks.

Re: I hate my glasses!

i used to wear contact lenses a lot, but i wear specs more often now. I only wear contact lenses if i play sports for long hours or if i'm gg out.

I'll recommend acuvue or bausch and lomb.

The cost depends on whether u've astig or not. If u've astig, den the cost will be higher.

As for the maintanence work for contact lenses, ur optician will be able to tell u

Re: I hate my glasses!

Every option has its pros & cons lah.

Wear specs nerdy but safest.

Contact lens expensive, need to take care of hygiene. Buying contact lenses in JB or Batam are a lot cheaper than in SG.

Lasik has it's risk too.
