Reviewer's quote

...I thought that it would be much more comfortable because price is twice as the Baush and DISAPOINTMENT. They are uncomfortable and they blurry your vision, and on top of that it is difficult to get them out of the eye. Also you get constant feeling that something is in your eye...

...Saves them money but screws the consumer. I will never buy anything from this company and I will give my honest opinion to anyone who asks about their company. They are not accredited by the BBB..
