I wear dailies (acuvue) and they cost 135 AED per box. I would imagine that your monthlies would be a bit cheaper though. I used to wear monthlies but after switching to dailies, I'm never going back to them - no more solutions and they are actually more comfortable and since switching about 4 months ago, I haven't had one single eye infection!!!

I use Capital Opticians in JBR. They offer a similar service to what I'm used to in the UK and stock the major UK brands. Mind you, I did try another optician before and I was totally not impressed!

Hi Ghandi,

I wish I could help......but I cant

I have always wore a monical myself, purely for the reason that I have a lisp and would feel silly walking into into an opticians and asking for spectacles!

Does anyone know if vision expenses are typically covered by medical coverage? I also wear contacts (Accuvue oasis) how easy is it to re-fill your supply once you run out from home?

In all likelihood, your medical insurance will not cover this but you should check your policy.

Most of the opticians in JBR actually deliver for free and I would imagine that it would be the same elsewhere as well. I would stick to your current brand as well - I went to one optician who had a different brand which was cheaper. Luckily, I tried one of the lenses on before buying - felt like there was sand in my eyes and needless to say I had to remove the lenses very quickly! She even tried to convince me that this was normal!!!!
