    Hi eveyrone,

    I just started wearing contact lenses about 1 month ago. My doc
    recommended using Biomedics Toric lenses (which is quite expensive,
    comparing to other toric lenses). I came across this site which said
    that UltraFlex toric lenses are "exactly the same" as the Biomedics
    Toric ones. Is this claim true? They are MUCH cheaper than the ones
    that are marketed as Biomedics Toric. I've included the link and their
    claim at bleow. I appreciate any insights!



    Quote: "These discounted Biomedics Toric contact lenses are exactly the
    same Biomedics Toric lenses you would get from your eye care
    professional. When you buy Biomedics Toric lenses from us, they will
    come factory sealed in their original packaging and have the same
    expiry and shelf life as the Biomedics Toric contact lenses you would
    get from your doctor's office."

    Yes they are the same.
    Ocular Sciences makes Biomedics Torics. They manufacture the identical
    lenses and sell them through a number of other distribution outlets with
    slightly different names. Ultraflex is another name that the Biomedics line
    is sold under. They can be directly substituted.

    these are available from walmart and sams clubs. they sell for about
    ultraflex = biomedics
    they are the same lenses sold from different distributors with
    different names.
    its perfectly legal for any distributor to substitute as long as you
    have a valid prescription from your eyedoc.
