    I have been wearing the same contact lens for approximately 14 years,
    and haven't had any issues or problems. Recently, I attempted to
    order a new pair only to discover that the lens (Durasoft 3, D3-X4)
    has been discontinued by the manufacturer (Wesley Jensen / Ciba

    A search on the internet revealed that Ciba Vision has discontinued a
    whole slew of contact lens lines (Focus 55, Precision UV, etc., etc.)

    Now, I'm stuck without a replacement lens. I am told that the next
    "closest" substitute is called Durasoft 3 Lite Tint which features a
    light teal tint, but the clear lenses have been discontinued.

    Does anyone know why Ciba Vision has discontinued so many contact
    lenses? Poor sales? lawsuits?

    Is there anything one can do about this? Is it possible to have
    customs contacts ordered? If so, how does one go about this?
