No such thing as cheap but good quality in contacts. They go on your eyes, it's not an area to shop on a budget.

As far as I'm concerned, http://www.9mmsfx.com is the only place worth going for anything beyond tinted lenses.

I've said this many times, and I'll say it again...I disagree...heavily.

I've gotten lenses from web-sites, dealers at cons, and eye doctors as well. The lenses I got from the con dealers and websites actually have held up a lot better than the Acuvue 2 colours I bought (although the Freshlook's are still an amazing lense).

I've order from both of these sites, who's prices are very good:

http://www.fashion-contactlenses.com/erol.html

http://www.bewild.com/

Also, 9mm prices are absolutly rediculuos. Now, I know contacts aren't supposed to be cheap...but 300 for a lense??? Hell, Cibe Illusions are 1/4 of that price, and I'd bet my life they are an all around better lenses than anything that comes out of 9mm...

The difference is the 9mmsfx are hand painted while the ones Asuka listed are machine stamped meaning they can make more of them in certain patterns/sizes while 9mmsfx will make them to your exact eye measurements.
