Contact lens prices in India?I live in Japan and the prices for daily contact lenses here are very expensive.
I was told the prices are far cheaper in India and that I should pick up a long-term supply on my summer trip there.
Does anyone know the prices (or know of a link to prices) of Acuvue or Focus Dailies in India?
I'll also be visiting Thailand during the summer, so if anyone knows if they're cheaper there please let me know!
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

1I buy Bausch & Lomb Soflens and pay, I think, around Rs2500 for 6 pair. Or maybe it's Rs2000. I have to get some pretty soon and maybe I'll remember to give the exact price here. In Ahmedabad, btw.

2Thanks, Pirate. But that actually sounds very expensive.
Those lenses only cost about Rs1500 (equivalent) for 6 pairs in London.

6Contact lenses are not exactly made by hands using cheap labor you know. I would not expect India to have cheap contact lenses.

7Gee, ya think? Might be imported. Might have a small portion of the population that even know what eyes are.
Still cheaper than Switzerland, which is why I get them in the first place. but I still think that anyone that shoves plastic in their eyes is a little off to start with.

9When I had prescription lenses made for my glasses they were about a third of the cost as from a UK optician. And they had them prepared and fitted to my frames same day.
I walked into one of the opticians on Pahar Ganj Main Bazaar, maybe 50m or 100m up from the Anoop guest House walking in the opposite direction from New Delhi station.
This of course was glasses, not contacts. But variations on a theme, right?
