Top 4 Things To Know When Buying Contact Lenses Online

By Donna Clark - August 14, 2019

The internet is bringing every category of products right to your door, and that includes contact lenses, typically bought in store after seeing a doctor. Well, no more folks, you can now order these on the beach while sipping a Mai Tai as you “work from home”. We can’t guarantee these vendors will walk through sand to deliver your lenses though.

We made a short list of the Top 4 things to know when buying contact lenses online:

  1. Prescription: We’ll start by confirming that you still need a prescription and you still need to get your eyes checked. Nothing changes there. You need a prescription specific to contact lenses so your glasses prescription won’t cut it.
  2. Brands: Most large brands are online now whether directly or via a vendor. High quality brands such as Alcon, Everclear, Acuvue, Bausch + Lomb, and CooperVision are all available and provide a great mix of choice for consumers. The convenience factor is 10x here.
  3. Subscription: Lo nad behold folks, you can not only be on the beach when you order your lenses, but you can also do it only once for the length of your subscription. Take it from us: it’s the way to go, no doubt about it. More and more vendors offer this option, delivering the product straight to your door.
  4. Price: There’s a wide variety of prices here directly connected to the quality of the contact lenses you are buying. Some online-focused manufacturers offer great pricing without compromising on quality, so as always we recommend you do your due dilligence and research, research, research!
