Biomedics 55

I have been a contact lens user for more than a decade now. And all these years I have tried numerous brands of contact lens, Acuvue, Freshkon, GEO, Air Optic, Softlens and other not-so-popular brands, and my experience includes wearing those daily and monthly lens.

For once, I was in love with those colored lens too! I think those lens are very useful cause you can skip the whole make up thing and still looks good! But after reading some articles about how the colored lens are made, I've decided to switch to clear contact lens. I don't want to make any judgement on colored lens, but I  just wanna say I believe the clear contact lens are much safer to wear.

Few months ago, I was exposed to another brand of contact lens, Biomedics 55. Tried a pair and I can feel the difference, compared to those previous brands. It's much more comfortable and less dry to the eyes. I can wear for hours without feeling any discomfort or itchiness or dryness, even in air-conditioned room.

It's slightly pricey than the others but I think it's worth it.


Must give a big thumbs up for the person who invented contact lens, cause it really brings so much convenience to people like me. I have shortsightedness since secondary school time (probably due to genes since my dad is also wearing glasses?) and ever since I tried wearing contact lens for the first time, I fell in love with it ;)

Anyway, though I love contact lens, I sometimes still prefer to wear glasses. Fast, easy and no hassle, haha! I guess it's just depends on what situation it is to decided whether to wear glasses or contact lens =)

p/s: this is not a paid post, it's just my sincere and humble sharing of the brand~

  2. 这么多年,我只戴一个牌子的,习惯了,就不想换。
    至于颜色和放大瞳孔的,我都没有尝试,原因,觉得好假。

  5. I started wearing contact lens when I was 18 til 26, then stopped, coz I got lazy.. No brand one la, mostly those I bought from the optical shop when I was staying my parents.. Now, I wear my glasses when I'm driving and when I'm at home (to watch TV and to vacumn). Other than that, I can survive without my glasses, haha.. Not wearing them in the office, coz "oi leang" ma..

  7. 我小学开始近视,都是戴眼镜,到了中一才接触隐形眼镜。

    也是一样更换牌子,daily, monthly 都有。有一阵子觉得monthly的很容易干,又容易揉眼睛就掉下找不到。所以就戴daily,现在回想,很浪费钱啊我以前用daily的。

    现在,几年了都带monthly这个牌子, i contact ev58,适合我。眼镜就晚上或者在家,因为我戴眼镜很丑

    谢谢介绍!^_^ 方便告诉我价钱吗?

  11. haha, secondary school only you started wearing glasses?? hmm, like that i am more "experienced" than you lah.. i started wearing glasses when i was in primary school year 5 leh.. 11 years old and already bearing the short-sightedness for more than a quarter of a century!! OMG~~

    1. throughout the schooling days i have been wearing glasses lah, and after about 10 years later when i was in my last year of uni life, i started to wear contact lens already.. started with permanent lens because that was what the optician recommended lah, i remember he said permanent lens are hard lens, easier for beginners.. but then i think nowadays nobody is wearing permanent lens already right?? usually monthly or even daily disposable.. i think the disposable ones are actually better lah.. cheaper and can change to fresh ones periodically.. unlike the permanent ones, once i lost one side, and gosh, gotta get another new pair, very expensive i remember it was like RM200 a pair that time.. nowadays the disposable ones are so cheap, one box of 6 lens can be like only RM50..

    2. have tried B&L, have tried Focus, and now i also no idea what i am using already, because Focus has been the most comfortable ones for me, but now they have stopped manufacturing, so the optician recommended me this new brand.. errr, okay lah but then i still find it a bit dry for me sometimes.. hmmm, so this Biomedics-55 is good ah?? maybe i shall try that next round..

    3. actually i will only put on contact lens when i am outside, when at home i will take off the lens and put on my ah-pek specs, haha!! cannot wear contact lens for long hours lah, our eyes also need to breathe mah.. but then i have no problem with long hours of wearing contact lens lah, i can also take nap wearing contact lens, i won't really feel dry, if i do, then i always have a lens drop with me, just one drop to moisturize the lens and i feel comfortable again :)

    4. Waaaahhh.. nap with CL ah..? I never do that but I accidentally slept with my CL for one whole night.. hahaha

    5. Wah, macam my hubby la, he started wearing glasses during primary school time.

      Yea, these days soft lens are more popular, price is cheaper too!

      Yes, it's quite good, you can give it a try!

      Really cannot wear lens for too long continously, bad for the eyes! And it's not advisable to wear lens to sleep!

  14. I don't wear specs so I can't comment too much but I must say, one must have the courage to wear a contact lenses. I saw my cousin put them on and oh my, so scary. The finger is like touching the eye balls !
