There are alot of people that have been using these contacts for years. A lot of people are used to them, find them very comfortable and they were available in colored toric lenses in a variety of powers. Not one company can substitute for the discontinuation of these products. Also, Ciba Vision gave no warning and their explanation was that they were backordered and simply decided to discontinue their "specialty soft contact lens brands with immediate effect." We want them back! It's not like they had lack of orders. We are willing to pay for the high cost of these contact lenses because we like them and there are no other contacts that can replace them!!
