How to buy contact lenses online
When buying contact lenses online, all you need to do is double check your prescription on the side of a box of contact lenses you've recently bought, enter the details and go through the simple checkout process. To find your contact lens prescription details navigate to any of our product pages, on the right-hand side of the page you'll see a grey box, titled 'Enter Your Prescription', click on any of the following: 'base curve', 'diameter', 'power', 'cylinder' and 'axis. The relevant area will now be highlighted. This makes it easier to find your prescription details on your current contact lens box, so you don't need your prescription to hand. Or, if you're unsure how to read your prescription, follow the link to find out and watch our handy video, for some easy to follow advice. Need some help? 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 hassle?
Buying contact lenses from the optician is often more expensive and complicated than buying online. This is due to optician direct debits schemes. They work like rolling monthly phone contracts, where you pay a fee for your supply of contact lenses. However, direct debit schemes aren't always good value for money and can limit the freedom of lens wearers, because:
- New customers sign up for a minimum of 3 months
- Some direct debit schemes last 2 years
- No flexibility, you receive the same lenses every month
- If you want to switch lenses you need to visit your optician
Buying from Vision Direct gives you total freedom to buy what you want when you want. We have no minimum order value, we're open 7 days a week 8:00 to 23:59 and we'll deliver to your home the next day as standard when we have your product in stock. We understand direct debits can be convenient, they reduce the need to worry about ordering new lenses. That's why we created our SMS/email reminder service, which allows customers to set an automatic reminder for the date they'd like to reorder lenses. This way you'll never forget to reorder again.
