Why is buying contact lenses from the optician more expensive?
Opticians tend to offer contact lenses on a direct debit scheme that includes extras. Signing up to a scheme like this might seem like an easy way to make sure you never run out of lenses, but if you don’t wear them every day you might find yourself paying for more than you need. They also carry the cost of having high street stores, which can be passed on to you.
When you buy contact lenses online, you can order the exact number of lenses that you want, for when you want them. You’ll still enjoy the convenience of getting contacts delivered to your home and our UK next day delivery service can have your lenses with you in less than 24 hours, perfect if you ever forget to re-order.
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 a SMS or 3 clicks from your inbox for your lenses to be on their way. There’s no automatic payment so, if you do have lenses to get through, you can use them up first.
Why is it cheaper to buy big brand name contact lenses instead of optician equivalents?
Usually, when 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. Both Specsavers easyvision range and Boots own brand lenses are made by the world’s leading contact lens manufacturers, who also make equivalent versions that come in different packaging and are known by a different name. These are cheaper than the optician’s lenses, so switching is a great way to save money on contact lenses.
