I don’t really know how to read this, what number should I order? Thank you
Same, I wear glasses for work, and contacts for days / nights out and sports :)
These are terrible, have a DK/t of 26. Oxygen permeability is very low. They'll end up feeling uncomfortable for a normal days wear. Spend the extra and look for something actually fitted by an optometrist, or actually go for a contact lense fit and see what your base curve size is, etc. then shop online if you really want to save a penny. Protect your eyes, my wife's an optometrist and she's seen some right grotty eyes from people who think they know better than their optom. Edit: I've read their spiel on other brands, I wouldn't touch those ones with a bargepole either. They're the budget brands from other companies. Stand by what I said.
Been using these for years, not a deal though, it's their regular price.
I wear glasses for work and use these lenses for holidays and night outs and have used for years with no problems
You are implying that because lenses have a water content that this in itself is a risk (lenses should be sterile). This is not the case. The incidence may be low, and bearing in mind that the USA population is many times greater than the UK, but it is a condition that can cause blindness, as can Pseudomonas, which is also found in water. So, whilst we don't advocate blowing this out of all proportion, similarly, we don't want to leave any doubt that contact lenses should not come into contact with fluids that are not prescribed for cleaning them.
Can't imagine swimming pool water with chlorine in it would be an issue.
Yeah swimming is out, 109%, but this condition is pretty rare in the U.K. it’s much more prevalent in the states and even then 100 cases a year. I have showered with lenses in before using the simple technique of not letting water get in my eyes. Not perfectly you might say, well wearing high water content lenses alone puts you at risk, and one cannot 100% prevent water contact with lenses in the rain (droplets coming off foliage for example), and even vigilant hand hygiene etc isn’t perfect.. It’s a risk and don’t swim with contacts, but don’t let’s blow it out of proportion
Never, ever, swim or shower with contact lenses in. Fluids, other than natural tears or the solutions for cleaning and storing them, should never come into contact with your lenses. Read the following: What causes acanthamoeba keratitis?There are various factors known to increase the risk of getting acanthamoeba keratitis. The biggest risk factor is exposure to water, but poor contact lens hygiene can also cause infection. The key contributors are: Swimming or showering in contact lensesRinsing or storing your lenses in waterHandling your lenses with unwashed or wet handsFailing to disinfect your lenses properlyFailing to clean and dispose of your contact lenses appropriatelyUsing non-sterile solutionsTopping up your solution rather than using fresh solution
Yeah it’s mainly an issue for surfers, water polo players etc. that need to be able to see but can’t wear goggles. My opticians has always said if you must wear contacts in the pool make sure you take them out straight away. Agree with the showering too, that’s how most people get eye infections as they don’t realise.

You use the code GLOSSYBOX at checkout. It’s for new vision direct customers.
Seemed worth it to me too. Sadly, I haven’t had a code and no luck getting help either.
Me. You don’t get the current box you get a lucky dip from old boxes. I got a Huda highlighter pallette, floss gloss, shower foam and some other items I forgot. Well worth it but apparently not popular on here. I spent like £12 on 3 months supply of contact lenses and a Glossybox. It’s a deal for me :) I also went through a cash back website.
Did anyone take up this offer and get their Glossybox code?
Thanks for the feedback I was wondering whether to pull the trigger on a test order of a months supply, would have jumped on it but the feedback is excrutiating and reflects a company not just in disarray but in absolute choas, they have not adapted or attained the necessary logistics sufficiently in the current circumstances and if it's as bad as it looks (pardon the pun!), they should not be taking orders IMO. They have enormous resources but can easily see a brand behaving like this, getting obliterated. I was blown away by Vision Direct first order, delivered next day extremely well packed and with a bag of sweeties thrown in lol (although Vision Direct - gesture appreciated but consider not all your customers want to receive gifts with gelatin in - unasked for - sent to them by mail ) Edit : Vision Direct order around the beginning of lockdown
Cold from me. Usually order regularly from Feel Good Contacts and get excellent service, however thought I'd give Vision Express a try due to current prices. Order placed and payment was taken, yet 48 hours later they've sent me an email to say that as I'm not a customer they'll need me to send a copy of my current prescription before they can do anything 'to ensure I have input the correct details'. Hmm...why accept the payment then? Or at least send an automated email as soon payment is taken requesting a copy of the prescription. As such, I've replied to their email and received a standard automated reply indicating it could be 'a few days' before I receive a reply as they are so busy. Furthermore lenses are taking longer to be delivered than normal due to the current situation. As I'm low on contacts I've re-ordered from Feel God Contacts with tracked next-day delivery (only £3.95). Moral of the story - if it ain't broke don't fix it. Not for the sake of a few quid anyhow.
Will see what happens. Vision Express has always been good to me. I had awful experiences with Specsavers.
I ordered a pair of readers the week before lockdown in store (my first ever proper pair) they were due the week of the lockdown so obviously I couldn't collect them. I had no email or text to say what would be happening, I had to go online and find that information out myself, after 4 weeks I received a pair through the post, they where too big and I couldn't take them to store to be heated up and adjusted, they also sent a 50% off voucher with the glasses and an apology. 2 weeks later I received a duplicate pair just out of the blue, these where not ordered but again too big for me. 1 week after that I received an envelope with another 50% off voucher. I don't think they know what they're doing at all and doesn't inspire much confidence that the prescription is correct or the glasses are even mine.
Daily contacts don't have the much higher oxygen transfer rate that monthlies do. But also don't need to either. They don't have a chance to get clogged up with protein.
You do know opticians are not doctors yeah? They fit glasses and contact lenses. Still though, price per day is king!
I would recommend that you speak to your optician. I'd ask them if the lenses you've been prescribed are suitable for your life style. Once they resume routine testing. As for recommendations I'm not at liberty to suggest any. However here is a link to an American optometrist that discusses top lenses. Ps. I'm more of daily cl person. The thought of reusing a plastic polymer for 30 days and having the responsibility of cleaning and storing the lenses is too much. I'd rather have single use option.
I get these (in toric form) dispensed to me through my specsavers subscription What would you recommend please? Thanks
If you are a member of Costco, they do deals on contact lenses now and again. I buy mine - Johnson and Johnson daily contact lenses for astigmatism - when they do the buy 3 months get a month free deal (£107). They do deals on other contact lenses too.
1 box left, 1 box right. Usually people have slightly different vision in each eye, so slightly different strength contacts for each. And yes you need a contact lense prescription. Normally free with a free trial I think at Specsavers. I think the company are supposed to check your prescription is up to date (within 2 years) but don't think they do.
I tried them, they are okay but not so great quality. Much thicker, very uncomfortable, itching all day!
Don’t forget 8% Quidco !!
Can anyone recommend a company that does Toric lenses cheaper than the Specsavers etc.

Everclear ADM (trial pack) Try it FREE - 2 packs, 10 lenses, £3.98 shipping @ Vision Direct£3.98Vision Direct Deals
Been buying the 3 pack from Amazon when it drops below £20. Really pleased with the product
Lmaoooooo. I use the EasySept peroxide, the one with the grey spider disc at the bottom which does the neutralising. The cost it is more than the most of the lenses themselves now! Too scared of laser eye treatment btw.
Haha I’m having second thoughts on using this now. I’m not so good at remembering when I’m on nights
Lol, never forget putting the pink tablet in the to neutralise the peroxide solution. You only forget once, as you try fishing out the context lens from your eye that refuses to open due to the pain. Those were the days, like Russian roulette in the morning after a night out and trying to remember if you popped a new tab from the blister pack. Thankfully I don't need corrective lenses now!

Also, after placing my order (of £10 for free home delivery) I was asked to share a recommendation link to receive £10 off a £50 spend. Got the email and code immediately. I think it would have been frustrating if I had done a big shop!
Oh dear, they’ve caught on. It was showing earlier. So this must have been a glitch before and now in the process of correcting
Not 2 for £5 online when i try.. 2 for £14.
Thanks and I agree. I can’t believe how expensive they are for a bottle. I think saw £2.49 each in Savers so better deal at Home Bargains.
Home Bargains do an all in one solution for less than £2 if you have one nearby. Been using it years without any issues, this stuff is so expensive in boots so still a good spot!

Bausch + Lomb ReNu contact lens solution 3 x 240ml £8.50 prime / £12.99 non prime at Amazon£8.50Amazon Deals
3 months' supply of contact lens solution, usually you can only get 1 bottle for a price like this on highstreet stores.
I understand, I too used to use two solutions. For quite a while, though, it seems that all the solutions have been refined, so are used for both cleaning and storage. I've used all-in-one stuff for quite a few years. Perhaps, the only exception may be for hard lenses?
You can :) Once it's delivered just cancel subscription....I did every 6 months frequency just incase I forget
I tried to figure out if it's possible to use this offer and then cancel the subscription, but their T&Cs are so lengthy and tricky so I just gave up.. :\
Thanks Bought for £5.88 with the 30% first subscribe order
Oh I didn't see that,but got it for 7.69 so I'm happy with that :)

You have to becreally careful with Specsavers. Different branches vary enormously but i I would say most branches I've tried were garbage. Numerous times they've messed up my prescription and tried to convince me I just needed time for my eyes to adjust. I go nowhere near them now.
Yeah, these were just daily chuck aways.
Depends on the type of lenses you were trying out. Daily or Monthly disposable you’d probably have been ok. Has permeable. You’d have to pay and get a refund as they are long term solutions you clean.
I tried one of these trails before, but the contact lenses just got stuck to my feet. Worst trail ever!
When I tried this some time back, the free trial was "in shop only"!!!! I had never tried contacts before and thought this was a good way to see if they were good for me. They said I would have to buy them if I wanted to walk out the shop. Never got my business again after that. Maybe they have learned from that and now offer a real trial in the real world.
