How to save money buying contact lenses

Save money on contact lenses

Because you're buying contact lenses online, you're already saving money weekly, monthly and yearly on every box you buy. Why is this? Well, as an online business we don't have brick and mortar stores, which allows us to pass savings on to contact lens wearers. What's more if you shop savvily there's further savings to be made.

Here's how to save even more with Vision Direct:

Vision Direct vs the high street

By not shopping on the high street you're already saving a significant amount of money. So far so good. But, did you know that we can help you save up to 45% on some lenses compared to UK high street opticians? See the biggest price differences between us and high street opticians below.

One example is Proclear Toric lenses. When purchasing a year's supply you save a whopping £168.08 buying through us rather than major high street opticians.

Refer a friend

Sharing is caring. Every time you refer a friend they get 10% off their first order, and we'll reward you with £5 store credit. So, dig into that address book...

Stock up

Bulk buying always helps to save a few (or a lot) pounds. Our 90 packs of daily lenses work out cheaper than 30 packs. And, with free UK next day delivery when you spend over £49, it makes sense to buy a few boxes at a time if you know you're going to use them up. If you live in the US and spend more than £49, delivery costs are significantly cheaper.
