    Hmmmmmmmmm lucky you! Meg wears a soft contact in her left eye new every 2 weeks @ £30 a throw. Currently provided by the NHS on a specialist run from the manufactures.

     

    We dont know if it will be possible to get them on medi care so we have cultivated our local optician. A very nice helpfull man who recons if we buy 12m supply @ once he could get them for about £25 a month, £300 per anum. He is prepared to act as itermidiary for us and send them out to AU if desperation strikes. I suspect if your eyes arnt off the scale like Megs you may be able to deal direct with the manufacturers over the net.

    I went to Specsavers in Rundle Mall. I paid $160 for 3 months supply of fortnightly Acuvue Oasys lenses plus another $24.95 for solution and cases which the optician said should last the three months. It was more than I paid in the UK but I desperately needed lenses. I am probably going to go online and order some when I next need them.

    I highly recommend Netoptical (www.netoptical.com.au) for buying your lenses and solutions online. I restocked just this week - they arrived the next day! Graham who runs the place is very helpful, great at communication, and I have been using them for about five years now and always been very happy with them. You still need to get your eyes checked regularly obviously at an opticians - I use Laubman and Pank (sp?) in Tea Tree Plaza and they are great.

     

    If you decide to use Netoptical, feel free to send me a PM coz appartently if you put my name in as having recommended them I get a discount next time I order :) - you don't have to though....!!

    PS Just did a quick price comparison with Flutterby's lenses above - Acuvue Oasys 12 pack - $68
