What are equivalent Vision Express contact lenses?
Contact lenses are just like fashion brands: we often end up paying more for products just because of the label attached. The same can be said for your contact lenses, only there's absolutely no difference in the quality or product.
Big retailers such as Vision Express, as well as Specsavers and Boots will often re-package lenses from manufacturers, so that their loyal customers think they're buying a lens exclusive to the brand. In actual fact, we stock the exact same contact lenses you're currently wearing from the same manufacturers. We just don't charge our customers more for fancy packaging.
Vision Express contact lenses cover a variety of wearing patterns and are also available for specialised eye conditions. But whether you wear toric lenses for astigmatism or multifocal lenses for presbyopia, we've got the exact match for you. Plus, we have the equivalent for all the Vision Express wearing patterns, including daily disposables, monthly, two-weekly and extended wear lenses.
Who makes equivalent Vision Express contact lenses?
In the contact lens manufacturing world, there are only a few top-notch suppliers, meaning that all Vision Express contact lenses are made by the same manufacturers we stock. The main manufacturers include CooperVision, Sauflon and Ciba Vision.
How do I get my prescription from Vision Express?
After you've completed an eye test and check-up or fitting, you're legally entitled to a copy of your contact lens prescription. If you haven't received yours, you can simply reach out to your Vision Express optometrist and request a copy. Once you have your prescription, pay a visit to our site, and start enjoying the benefits of ordering your contact lenses and eye care essentials online.
How can I buy equivalent Vision Express contact lenses online?
Usually, when buying your contact lenses from Vision Express, you'll be encouraged to join a direct debit scheme. With this Vision Express contact lens subscription, you'll pay a monthly fee to receive your lenses, as well as some extra services. The biggest downside of a scheme like this is that you'll often be tied into a minimum order quantity, normally lasting 3 months. Initially, you may think this option is an easy way to order your lenses, but it can be a huge waste of money, especially if you don't wear them every day.
Luckily, if you shop with us, you don't have to commit to a single thing. We're all about letting you take complete control, and we'll provide you with those extra services for free. Just by shopping with us, you have full access to our EyeCare+ service, including around-the-clock customer support and aftercare, exclusive eye tests and contact lens check-ups from premium opticians, David Clulow, and contact lens replacements. No strings attached!
Plus, there's no minimum order quantity, so you'll always have the exact right amount of lenses for when you need them. To keep you on track of your reordering schedule, you can also set up text or email reminders and we'll send you a message when it's time for new lenses. If this all sounds good to you, check out our in-depth guide on how to cancel your optician's direct debit.
