UK's Best selling contact lenses
Types of contact lens sold at Vision Direct
Daily contact lenses are easy to use and throw away; no need to worry about storing them overnight or rinsing them in solution. Popular with active and busy people, dailies are worn by those who work long hours - for instance, shift workers. Sporty individuals often prefer dailies too, as they're more hygienic than monthlies, and can be worn during sport and discarded straight after use. Many people find dailies to be more comfortable and convenient, as they don't need rewetting and there is no worry over dirt or makeup building up on the lens surface and causing infection.
Many leading brands of dailies are available at Vision Direct, including Focus Dailies All Day Comfort, 1-Day Acuvue Moist, everclear ADM and 1-Day Acuvue Trueye.
Two weekly contact lenses, also known as bi-weeklies, are designed to be worn for two weeks and then replaced. They are best suited to people who seek a compromise between the convenience of dailies and the cost-effectiveness of monthlies, plus they're more hygienic than monthlies, as they are disposed more often. When you wear two weekly lenses, you will need to store, clean and rinse them each night in contact lens solution, to keep them moist and fresh.
Vision Direct stocks Acuvue two weekly contact lenses, made from breathable silicone hydrogel.
Monthly contact lenses are stored and reused for up to 30 consecutive days, making them an affordable option with less waste than dailies. When you wear monthlies it's important to choose a powerful and effective solution to rise and clean them in, like everclear Multipurpose Solution.
Monthly contact lenses at VisionDirect: Air Optix Aqua, Proclear, PureVision, Biofinity, Air Optix Night & Day Aqua & lots more.
Extended wear contact lenses can be worn continuously for a week or a month, depending on the type. Most are made from silicone hydrogel, a very comfortable and breathable material. Always check with your optician to determine if your eyes are suitable for this wearing pattern before purchasing extended wear lenses.
Extended wear lenses at Vision Direct: Acuvue Oasys, Air Optix Aqua, PureVision, Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism & more.
Whether you wear prescription lenses or not, most people can wear coloured contacts for cosmetic reasons. If you don't need vision correction just select 0.00 power in the prescription field. Coloured lenses can really refresh your look and let you try out a new style, whether you want to wear them every day or purchase a daringly different pair to wear for a Halloween or fancy dress party.
VisionDirect stocks FreshLook Colourblends contact lenses from Ciba Vision, a special type of lens built for comfort, which brings out a whole new tone and depth to your eye. You can choose from subtle shades of hazel, soft blue and honey, or opt for a strikingly different lens in emerald green, turquoise, or bright blue. FreshLook lenses are monthly lenses, and they can be worn for a period of up to 30 days before needing to be changed (they should be stored overnight in a good multipurpose solution). The lenses are made from 55% water and 45% Phemfilcon A, making them ultra breathable and comfortable to wear.

Contacts for specific needs
If you wear a special type of contact lens to address a specific vision problem, it is very likely that you can buy it from VisionDirect. Even if your lens is not in stock, we can usually order it in for you, and once you've ordered a few times we'll make sure to stock your lens, meaning shorter delivery times.
Toric contacts help to correct vision problems caused by an irregularly-shaped cornea, and will fit more comfortably than regular lenses if you suffer from astigmatism. They also help to prevent blurring and hazy vision which can be caused by astigmatism. If you are not sure whether you need a standard or toric contact lens, you can refer to your prescription or give us a call and check your prescription with us.
Toric contact lenses for astigmatism from VisionDirect: Focus Dailies Toric, 1 Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism, Biofinity Toric, PureVision Toric & more.
You can wear multifocal contact lenses to correct presbyopia, without having to wear bifocal or varifocal glasses. Contacts offer you freedom to enjoy daily life and sporting activities without glasses, which you might not have realised was possible if you previously wore varifocal or bifocal glasses. Vision Direct stocks soft multifocals made from breathable silicone hydrogel and materials that enhance comfort during use. If you are unsure whether multifocals are right for you, or what sort of lens you need, it's best to check with your optician before wearing.
Vision Direct stocks a wide range of multifocal lenses from leading manufacturers, including Focus Dailies Progressive, Proclear 1 Day Multifocal, Air Optix Aqua Multifocal, Proclear Multifocal & more.
