daysoft.ca: 8.99 for 32 contact lenses

received my order last week after seeing an ad in the metro. $8.99 per box of 32 lenses. One size fits all (and works well, as I have funny measurements). Regular, daily disposable contacts (ie no torics etc). Ships from UK, did Fedex shipping so it came to $38.90 for 64 contacts.

link is in the topic - daysoft.ca
8.99 ea (min. order 2 boxes) delivered via post, extra charge for 3 business day courier
they have 2 styles as far as I can tell, depending on your current brand you will get the 58 or the 72. just a size thing I think.
I have been using them now for about a week, and see no difference between these in comfort, fit, or durability compared to my cibadailies.

Yea after doing a little research, these guys originally developed the first daily disposable contact lenses and sold them to Bausch & Lomb and after the 5 year agreement they had, they decided to remanufacture them and sell for a cheaper cost so everyone could afford disposable contact lenses..

and yea as soblecram mentioned.. there are only two varities 58 and 72 referring to the water content in each lens.. 58% and 72% respectively..

:?: I wear Acuvue2 2 week disposables now. If I start to use these daysoft lenses, they are 1 day disposables? Also these are safe right? Just making sure.

They are 1 day disposable. I trust them and believe it to be safe.

I may be mistaken, but the last time I checked I don't believe these are US FDA approved. While not having the US FDA approval doesn't mean that it's a horrible product, the specs on the ECP site are comparable to major brands. Daysoft only offers one size and no there is no such thing as a one size fits all. It does however have a sizing that targets to fit the majority of the population. In all honesty, you should check with your Optician or Optometrist to make sure these will fit properly before you jump the gun.

"Lenses which are too small fail to give complete corneal coverage and result in discomfort and peripheral corneal staining. However, lenses which are too large exert more pressure at the periphery - due to greater bending forces - which can lead to discomfort and indentation of the bulbar conjunctiva." *Please see http://www.opticianonline.net/assets/ge ... temID=2956

According to the study, it also states that these lenses exhibit the most shrinkage out of the compared contacts in the study. Testimonials from other people based on feeling is not an accurate representation of whether or not it actually is a properly fitted lens.

However, at the end of the day, they are your eyes and not mine. :)

Many people would then have sat back and put their feet up – but not Hamilton. Realising he could sell disposables more cheaply via the internet, he threw his hat back in the ring in 2001. "You can't take another penny off a lens. But you can take pounds off by distributing it differently." Starting up again in Lanarkshire, his new firm, Daysoft, made a £300,000 profit on sales of £4m last year, selling a month's supply of lenses for £6.99.

"The next best you'll get is £18," he says. The company is set for sales of £6m this year. "So as you can probably gather, I'm a pretty satisfied individual."

I've been wearing daysoft since around 2002 (the higher water content) and I've always been delighted with them; I imported around 500 lenses when I moved to Canada from the UK.. Tip: they're called daily disposable because they're thinner than weekly/monthly - if you're a bit careful there is NO reason that you can't clean them properly and wear a pair for more than a single day. Solution is cheap, just clean them carefully the same as you would weekly or monthly soft contacts. I've been doing this for almost a decade with no problems at all.

Yup, even my eye doctor said that if i'm careful and I clean them properly, I can reuse them for a week or more. I have sensitive eyes, so there's no way that i'd wear them for a week, but there are times that I reuse them for a 2-3 days. A month supply of Daylens contacts last me about 3-4 months.

I find that the solution that Daylens uses burns my eyes. I usually have to use eye drops afterwards.
