How to Buy Contact Lenses Online

By Dr. Silvia Bernard

Over the past several years I've helped hundreds of customers save thousands of dollars by ordering their contacts online. At first, there were a lot of questions about the ethics involved, prescriptions, and quality of the products sold online. However, those concerns have all but dissolved as online sales have become an industry standard. It's become easier, cheaper, and customers have grown to learn that the quality of lenses received is equal to those purchased from a doctor or eye care store.

How do these online companies provide the same products at a lower price? It's easy really. They sell an incredibly high volume of lenses, and they have a much lower overhead expense than a brick-and-mortar retail store.

There are many online retailers to choose from, but I would suggest sticking to the largest and oldest companies who have proven their reputation over the years. With over 20 million contacts in stock, 1-800 Contacts is more likely to have your contacts in stock than anyone else. In fact, they sell as many contact lenses in a single day as 2500 retail shops combined. It's an easy and convenient way of ordering your contact lenses (see With every online order you'll receive free shipping, a free lens case, and guaranteed satisfaction.

As a customer, you will receive the exact same contact lenses as you do from your eye care provider, including all of the major brands like Acuvue, Optima, Focus, Freshlook, Soflens, Proclear and Biomedics, as well as hard-to-find specialty lenses such as toric contact lenses, colored contacts, bifocal contacts, and multifocal lenses. 1-800 CONTACTS is an authorized retailer with Bausch & Lomb, CIBA Vision, CooperVision, and Johnson & Johnson.

For those of you who are afraid your eye doctor won't agree to give you a prescription to buy lenses outside his or her business, think again. I can guarantee your eye doctor is well aware that you can save money buy purchasing online, and he or she will certainly be willing to write the prescription lest they risk losing your business to one of the thousands of doctors who regularly refer their customers to online contact sales. If you don't want to hassle with going to your eye doctor to get the prescription, never fear! Simply order your contacts using the information on your existing box of contacts, and in most cases the online retailer will call your doctor and verify the prescription for you.
