How to buy cheap contact lenses online
Buying contact lenses online is super easy, you won't even need to dig out your paper prescription. All you need to do is double check your prescription on the side of your contact lens box, enter the details and go through the simple checkout process. Just remember opticians recommend contact lens wearers get their eyes tested at least every two years to ensure their prescription stays up to date.
To find your prescription details go to any contact lens product page, on the right-hand side you'll see a grey box, titled 'Enter Your Prescription', click on any of the following titles: 'base curve', 'diameter', 'power', 'cylinder' and 'axis'. The relevant area on the side of the box will now be highlighted. This makes it easier to find your prescription details on your current contact lens box, meaning you don't need your prescription to hand when ordering lenses.
If you need more help we have put together a guide on how to read your prescription, follow the link to find out more and watch our handy video, for some easy to follow advice. If you'd like further reassurance, just send us a picture of your prescription and we can quickly double check the details with your optician.
Why is buying contact lenses from the optician more expensive?
Opticians often bundle contact lenses in a package with aftercare, discounted glasses and other extras that some wearers simply don't need. These direct debit schemes offer convenience and simplicity, but at a higher price than buying lenses as and when you require them. Signing up to a scheme like this might seem like an easy way to ensure you never run out of lenses, but if you don't wear lenses every day you might find yourself paying for more than you need.
Instead, buy your contact lenses online, and order the exact number of lenses that you want, for when you need them. When you order from Vision Direct your lenses will be delivered to your door in just 2 to 3 days. Ordering takes just a few minutes, and unlike buying from the optician you'll never have to leave the house. We can also send you SMS or email reminders to make reordering just as effortless as a direct debit scheme. All it takes is a reply to an SMS message or 3 clicks from your email inbox for your lenses to be on their way. There's no automatic payment, so, if you do have some remaining lenses, you can use them up first.
Why is it cheaper to buy big brand name contact lenses instead of optician equivalents?
When you're doing the weekly food shop, if you're trying to cut costs, it's a good idea to move from branded products to a store's own brand equivalents. With contact lenses the opposite is true. Specsavers easyvision and Boots' own brand lenses are both more expensive than the equivalent own brand lenses we stock. We sell exactly the same lenses as the high street opticians. Our equivalent lenses are made by the same respected contact lens manufacturers who also make versions packaged with different names and branding for the high street. We sell our equivalent lenses cheaper than the optician, so switching is a great way to save money when buying lenses.
