VisionDirect.co.uk makes it easy for you to order your contact lenses with or without a prescription. We understand that busy lifestyles can result in a misplaced contact lens prescription, that's why we trust you, if you are confident that you know your contact lens specifications to order your contact lenses without a prescription.
Here are 3 ways to order your contact lenses from VisionDirect.co.uk:
1. Buy the contact lenses that your optician has prescribed without your prescription
Ordering your contact lenses with no prescription through VisionDirect.co.uk is simple. Just ensure you check the details of your order against your contact lens box or the prescription given to you by your optician. Once you're confident the details are correct, proceed through checkout without asking us to verify your prescription. We will then process your order via our European sister site Vision Direct BV where prescriptions do not need to be checked.
Every two years it is good practice to have an eye test, to see if your prescription has changed and to detect early indications of eye conditions or even diabetes. Don't self-prescribe, and always stick to the recommendations of a professional. Any experiments with different lenses are best arranged in consultation with an optician.
2. Upload or email us a copy of your written prescription
In this case, you can place your order as a first step. During the checkout process you will be given the option to upload your prescription. If you prefer you can scan and email a copy of your prescription to email@example.com or call our customer service team at 020 7768 5000. Make sure the prescription is up to date, and get it to us as soon as possible so as not to delay your order. Once we receive the copy of your prescription we will compare your prescription to the order to ensure you have ordered the correct lenses.
If your prescription changes you can either email it to us or upload your new prescription during the checkout process. For existing customers who have never uploaded their prescription in the past, you will need to ensure the 'Check my prescription' radio button is clicked in the 'Prescription' tab of the 'My Account' section of the website.
3. Ask us to check your prescription with your optician
One great way of providing reassurance that your order is correct is to enter the details of your optician when you register. We'll contact them by phone and check that your order matches your prescription. We have plenty of experience in consulting opticians, and there is very rarely an issue with us making an approach.
Ordering contact lenses online is the cheapest, most convenient and quickest way to get contact lenses delivered direct to your door.
