What our customers are saying: Bausch & Lomb product reviews
Biotrue Duo Pack "I have used Biotrue for a few years as my everyday solution and find it one of the best that I have tried as it cleans well, my lenses are very comfortable to wear & it appears less chemically harsh. It is also definitely better value for money when bought online." Review by Felicity (Posted on 18/02/2015)
SofLens Daily Disposable "These are great lenses, I've been using them for a number of years now. The price is really quite good, but they could always be a bit cheaper. Despite this, they exceed the other brands I've tried in the past in terms of comfort and provide a consistent quality of vision all day long. Vision Direct do a fantastic job at delivering these lenses very quickly and they pack them well too." Review by Toby (Posted on 20/01/2017)
SofLens 59 "Excellent service and timely delivery. Very pleased with the product and definitely worth the money comparing to the high street products." Review by Swetha (Posted on 23/11/2016)
PureVision2 "I've been trialling these lenses (to replace softlens 59 I used to wear) and can't believe how much better they are. It took a short while for my eyes to adjust to these, but they are so comfortable and vision is great now my eyes are use to them. They let lots of oxygen in to my eyes which is great as my eyes wear getting very sore with my old softlens 59 lenses.... They are so good I'm about to order some more. I work long hours with computers and often do night work so can confidentially recommend them. They are also good for sports, I wear them windsurfing and horse riding and they are great.
