I just needed new contacts so I did some reaserch. Cheapest I found these acuvues were $23 per box after $20 MIR but you need purchase 8 box min. Anyway just went to costco and they have a $10 OFF coupon. So with a $20MIR and only paying $93.40 for 4 boxes ($93.40-$20/4) $18.35 per box.

I thought it was a good deal. The coupon expires by July 30th and I am not sure when the rebate expire. The coupon is also good for #2, advance w/ purchase 4 boxes of hydraclear, advance for astigmatism, bifocal, 2 colours, enhancers or 6 boxes of 1-day. But I am not sure if the rebate is good with all of them (I submitted online).

Hope this helps some, at least it did help me.

that's a good deal! if i have a prescription for acuvue advanced, can i get the oaisys?

Oasys are great. I am looking for these but don't have a Costco membership. I have heard that you don't need a membership to buy from the drug store, is that true?

whats the diff between the oasys and the acuvue with hydraclear? i swear all these thigns are making me confused

Acuvue claims Oasys are more comfortable, meant for people who have problems with dryness with other contact lenses. At WalMart, the difference is about $10 a box between Advance and Oasys, so make sure you really need it. Try the Advance and if they are fine, then stick with them. Worst case, tell your optometrist to give you samples of both to try out.

I've used Focus Night and Day, Focus Dailies, Acuvue Oasys, and some other Ciba biweekly lenses I forget the name of. The Acuvue Oasys are by far the most comfortable. Well worth the extra scratch, especially considering you only get one set of eyeballs in a lifetime...

I have used Acuvue, Acuvue Advance, and now I'm on Acuvue Oasys. Oasys lenses are the most comfortable, and they really retain moisture even after wearing them for long hours. Not sure if everyone will think they're worth that much more than the Advance lenses, but I made the plunge after wearing the samples.

this is a very good price indeed, i just got my supply and missed out on this deal.

I personally think that oasys isn't that great, these contacts work very well with the optifree replenish contact solution.

Where can I find the $20MIR? All I can find is $30 MIR for 8 boxes. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif" border=0>

nice, just in time.

where can i get the $10 coupon?

gonna have to go with what the public opinion says. samples, here i come!

if your vision is worse than -6 then oasys is not for you (as in they don't make them stronger than that). I really wanted to try them but I'm -6.25, girr... girr so much. Sorry, just wanted to whine.

Everone was saying how mush they loved the advance and I hated them. Went back to my B&L comfort lens for $11 box. I am not biting into the oasis hoopla.

I actuall have gotten lenses that were torn upon opening and have even gotten packages in which the lenses are not even round. J&J seems to have bad QC.

skmerrow, that has happened to me before with J&J lenses but not in the past few years. I went from advances to the oasys and couldn't be happier. Advanced moved around on my eye which sucked. Oasys have been by far the best lens I have ever used. Unless they get dirty you can't even tell you have them on. No eye fatigue at all.

The problem I had with Acuvue advance is that they ripped quite often for me. I think I will try some Oasys the next time, I see the optometrist. I hope these wont have the same problem but I think the material they use in these contacts while being more comfortable is more prone to rips.

I agree that Oasys are comfy. I hadn't worn contacts for several years due to potential problems. Went back this year and tried Oasys - they are silicone lenses. I don't wear them for as long as I used to wear lenses (18 hours a day is what I used to do. Now it's more like 11 or 12 hours) but would still rather wear them than glasses. My optometrist also recommended Opti-Free.

The rebate prints at the register with your receipt. You can submitted online without any UPC or anything else to worry about, which is great. You just need that rebate receipt, cuz it contains information needed to submit the rebate online.

As far as the coupon, you can get it at costco its in the "passport for savings" booklet. My local costco have them all over. I was a bit drawn away with the price of oasys being so much higher than advance but after trying it for a week, I have to say, no going back for me.

another vote for oasys, i nap with them in with no problems. i used to wear the accuvue 2's. big improvement. great price. i just paid $27.50 a box shipped from 1800 contacts. dang<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif" border=0>

oasys also works fine with me, the only complain is it's kind of difficult to take off. For many times it seems like stuck with eyes. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif" border=0> Anyone has same problems?

yup.

Thats why silicon lenses went away for a while. these new ones supposedly have coating to protect against it. yeah right!
I feel like I am peeling a layer off my eyeball each time I remove the o2optix

I got them this MORNING no less from the eye doctor....
$485....I should have known to check here first!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe I can at least get the rebate!!

so do u guys recommend these even though they feel like you're ripping off a top layer of your eye everytime you take them off?


Can anyone recommend the cheapest online site to order contact lenses. Thanks.

That doctor owned you hard. You should stop going to that guy. Did he also charge you $200 for an eye exam? $20 for using his contact lense solution, and $10 for breathing the air in his office?

I have astigmatism, and my doc told me to get coopervision. (disposible)

not to happy with them, as things are not totally clear.

I am still on the trial pair right now, do you think I could potentially switch to acuvue advance?

...or is advance for a special type of astigmatism or non-disposible?

Any coupon for Bausch and Lomb 38 comfort lenses (may also be called Optima)???? I love these

Do I need a membership to buy these?

acuvue advance is not specifically for astigmatism, but there are acuvue lenses for astigmatism (maybe they are called advance also, not sure) and there are disposables, but i don't think they make disposables for astigmatism. why do you need disposables anyways?

kcappraiser said: [Q]Do I need a membership to buy these?
I think you need costco membership to buy anything at costco.

I think you can pay the 5% surcharge for non members

I thought I read somewhere that you don't need a membership for the pharmacy. Not sure if these would be purchased at the pharmacy or ? in Costco.

I went to the eye doctor to get my mother's eye exam 2 weeks ago. Just talked with the Doc and he told me that Oasys are great and very confortable.

He was telling me that his patients who cannot wear Advance for more than 4-5 hours without getting dry eyes are lasting ~8+ hours on the Oasys.

I am using Advance right now and my eyes start to feel dryness in about 5 hours currently. Thinking of switching to Oasys but I think that I will need a new prescription for them (or that was what the doc said <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif" border=0> )

anyone knows if I can get the Oasys with the Prescription for Advance ?

After reading this thread, I went to Costco to see how much my contacts would cost (Acuvue Advantage for Astigmatism), and I was happy to find their regular price is $30 a box. My eye doctor was gonna charge me $45, and online it was about $40. This is all before the coupon and rebates. Thanks FW...

do they have toric lenses?

Accuvue for Astigmatism I thought were toric lenses. I did see there is an Accuvue toric lenses available (not sure if available at costco), but I thought it was an older model/generation.

tikitiki said: [Q]do they have toric lenses?


So what's the mir? Is it $20 for 4 boxes? Does costco qualify for rebate? Thanks

kcappraiser said: [Q]I thought I read somewhere that you don't need a membership for the pharmacy.

IIRC they asked for my membercard when I initially ordered through them

for those thinking about getting acuvue advance, dont buy the marketing idea, its just a regular contact, nothing hydrating about it. about the oasys contact have no idea, but if these many people are saying its great, then well cant beat the deal. Not to mention that not only do you get 45 dollars off but you can use the $30 rebate i believe thats for a year suppply and well you got it for about 175 or so.

True, you shouldn't always buy into marketing hype but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try it, and you can try almost any Acuvue contacts for free by getting a trial pair coupon from the acuvue website. I have tried many contacts and finally tried Acuvue Advance which only offered slightly better comfort than other brands that I have tried. Then I tried the Oasys contacts, these contacts had a vast improvment in comfort over every contact brand I have tried yet (includes 4 different brands, not including different subsets of different brands).
