This week, the eyes have it

I like to keep an eye out for a good deal. And to do that I need good eyes. The problem is, my eyes aren’t very good at all. At least not without my contact lenses. I’ve long been short-sighted and for a short time I’ve been long-sighted.

Luckily, my contact lenses can deal with both of those issues, but they don’t come cheap. Help is at hand, however. If you’re a contact lens wearer, or considering becoming one, OPSM has a deal for you to consider.


Until this Sunday, OPSM is offering contact lenses at 20 per cent off the regular price. This applies across their huge range of lenses. That includes daily lenses or longer-term wear lenses, including monthlies. A 30 pack of OPSM’s own brand of 1-Day contact lenses is down from the usual $44 to $35.20. And if you become an OPSM subscriber, the price drops to $33. That’s 25 per cent off. 

What’s more, it covers most conditions and a wide range of brands. Need bifocals? No problem. A Biofinity multifocal six pack is available for $112 ($105 for subscribers), down from $140. Or if, like me, you suffer from astigmatism, consider the Acuvue Oasys 1-Day For Astigmatism 30-pack. Normally priced at $88, it comes in at $70.40, or $66 for subscribers.

If you fancy a bit of a change, have a look at the Colourvue range of lenses. Its TruBlends range offers a host of lens colours, including hazel, aqua, and even violet. And that’s just the beginning. Colourvue’s Big Eye, Glamour and 3 Tones ranges give you an even wider choice. And for a bit of fun, check out Colourvue’s Halloween range! While Halloween is still some months away, there’s nothing to stop you from donning a pair of Mad Frog or Orange Werewolf lenses now!

All of these come at 20 per cent off the regular price. Head to the OPSM website now to see the full range and claim your discount when checking out. But remember, the offer ends this Sunday.

Advantage Pharmacy

And while you’re looking after the health of your eyes, why not look after the rest of your body, too? Advantage Pharmacy’s Winter Wellness sale is on right through until the end of June, with a host of healthy specials available.

The Winter Wellness catalogue features an array of deals to help you through the cold and flu season without breaking the bank. Specials include Difflam Plus sore throat lozenges at 25 per cent off, Cenovis Mega C tablets at 35 per cent off and Swisse Ultiboost Zinc+ tablets, reduced by a massive 40 per cent.

There are plenty of savings to be made, too. See all the specials in Advantage Pharmacy’s full eight-page catalogue here.


Once you’ve looked after your eyes and other aspects of your health, you might want to pop in and pick up some groceries on your way home. If you’re a Woolworths regular, you might have heard about the new feature of its app – the unit price filter.

This feature allows you to sort specific categories by unit price, so you’re not comparing apples with oranges, as it were.

Let’s take honey, for example. Different brands come in different sizes. Capilano has a 500g jar, but Cloverdale’s honey jar is 400g. A quick look in the Breakfast and Spreads section on your Woolies app, then selecting Filter and Unit Price will tell you which brand is really the cheapest.

The Woolies app also features the latest catalogue, which this week has a number of tasty specials. If you’re in party mode, the good news is that Arnott’s Shapes, Allen’s Snakes, Nestlé blocks and Thins chips are all half price!

Woolworths has also dropped the prices on a number of items for the duration of winter. Check out the full range on your app or online here.
