Q: Does anyone know where I can buy contact lenses in Beijing?

I want to get my eyes checked by an ophthalmologist and get new contact lenses.

I read about an Aussie eye doctor named Dr. James Charles in BeiJing, but can't

find any contact info. (location,tel. no.,e-mail address,etc.) Please reply ASAP.

 

Many thanks,

Lorenzo

There is what you americans call a shopping mall full of spectacle shops, about 300 hundred I think. they sell everything to do with eyes.   It's at the end of line 10 Jinsong, walk towards Huawei Bridge for about 500 yards, the place is on your right.   There may be other places close by.   I wasn't wearing my spectacles at the time so can't be sure.   Don't forget to wear yours, I know what you americans are like, you even forget your manners and your place sometimes

LAR:

"i know..............sometimes." Too funny!!!! :) Actually, in my experience you Brits have been like that..just losing your POOR heads and all. And, acting like total twats. Regarding your comment about 'place', why don't you stick it up your ass? Es hipersensible maricon!!

You can buy the lenses online at www.lensproxy.com - they service specifically foreigners in China. Maybe they can also help you find a good ophthalmologist.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
