What are equivalent Boots contact lenses?
Boots sell their own brand contact lenses, just like in supermarkets you'll find own brand food and clothing ranges. Boots don’t manufacture their own brand products, they license the best lenses from leading contact lens manufacturers and add their own branding. Unlike your food shop, own brand contact lenses will not save you money, they are often more expensive than branded products.
Boots own brand lenses cover a variety of wearing patterns and are also available for specialised eye conditions. We offer the equivalent lens to Boots, whether you wear toric lenses for astigmatism or multifocal lenses for presbyopia. Plus we have the equivalent to all the Boots wearing patterns: daily, monthly, two-weekly and extended wear lenses.
We sell the same lenses as Boots, sourced directly from the manufacturer. The only difference is the lenses have a different name, and most importantly are often cheaper. For instance, if you previously wore Boots High Water Monthly the equivalent brand on VisionDirect.co.uk is Air Optix Aqua.
How can I buy Boots equivalent lenses online?
When buying contact lenses from Boots you’ll normally be recommended to join a direct debit payment scheme. On a direct debit scheme, you’ll pay a monthly fee to receive your lenses.
However, often direct debit schemes will tie you into a minimum order quantity, typically lasting three months. While this can be a convenient way to build a lasting stock of lenses, it can be wasteful if you don’t wear lenses every day. Plus, seeing as Boots are having issues with delivering at the moment, why get caught out without your lenses?
Enough of the bad news, what’s the good news? Here it is, you can easily get the same lenses as Boots sell online, often at a fairer price. Most of the Boots popular contact lenses are equivalent to branded contact lenses that you can find online at Vision Direct, the product is exactly the same. It's only the branding that is different. With Vision Direct you’ll enjoy more freedom, easily buying lenses as and when you require them. Cancelling your Boots direct debit and buying branded equivalents from Vision Direct can save you up to 45%.
Choose to order what you need when you need it, with no minimum order quantity, you’ll get the exact amount of contact lenses you need. What’s more, ordering online means faster delivery, our UK next day delivery service will get your lenses to your door in 24 hours or less. Plus, if you want to make sure you won’t forget to stock up, you can set up an SMS or email reminder when it’s time to reorder your contact lenses.
