    A member has forwarded me an email from Ministry Of Health. Sale of contact lenses other then by an optometrist/optician is illegal by law. Please close and cease all sales threads with immediate effect.

    The issue now isn't whether you can wear or not.

    The issue lies in whether you can actually buy them in the first place or not now.

    I'm slight OT-ing and replying hooolahoop about buying lens from our local opticians. Some colour lens come without astig. I'm talking about me still wearing them with or without astig.

    I'm not talking about buying lens from online lens batches. ^^

    (Oh my, did i just create some misunderstanding? Anyway, my bad for OT-ing. Back to the topic then.)

    The main issue actually lies in that Geo lenses are actually not brought in by local distributors, and the range available locally are not really what people are looking for when cosplaying, plus the prices are very steep, compared to the ones brought in from overseas.

    I done my research and its actually ok to sell lenses if they are authentic ones from the legalize company. in fact i plan to sell them from a personal home office soon, buying instocks.

    i guess its all those people selling fake ones that made the market so spoiled.

    but im curious to sell the email.

    anyway the sellers can still sell in their own blogshops. It's their own matter...

    I think kenshin just doesn't want any unecessary trouble from the authorities mentioned...

    moreover there's so many blogshops selling lenses it's hard for them to catch the fake ones too... So i think they can't do much to the blogshops At The Moment.

    If really have the letter, why no screenshot of letter to prove? Just say, anybody can do that. I can say Obama send me an email to wish my happy birthday what (lol, abit exaggerating, but yeah, you get the idea). No prove, hard to make people believe... Hound the user for evidence!!

    Saku-chan:: I am all prepared to be half-blind 'cos no astig, but optician don't want to sell me! urgh. and astig color lens like got brown and black that kind only, no nice nice colors.

    I remember coloured lens have astig, not only brown colour. o_o I might have remembered wrongly though.

    And if I remembered correctly, I read it somewhere that sale of contacts isn't allowed anymore, except for opticians. D8

    For those dying to see proof, go google and type: "singapore contact lens practitioner act".

    Have fun reading. Found it last night and showed bunny the link.

    There's no need to question the authencity of the email, it's sent in private with disclaimers so I cannot reproduce the entire email here. Fact is it came from MOH and there is an existing law, regardless of whatever you claim about license, real or fake, close your thread IMMEDIATELY.
