How to save money on contact lenses

Contact lenses have many benefits over wearing glasses, including being virtually invisible and allowing you to participate in sports. But as most contact lenses need to be replaced either daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly, there are ongoing costs involved in wearing them. Of course, there are with glasses too—especially if you lose them, sit on them, or break them—but people don’t think about this as often. If you’re frustrated with how much you’re paying for contact lenses, we can help. Find out how to save money on contact lenses by reading our article below.

Keep your prescription up to date

How to save money on contact lenses - EyesonlineIf you have been prescribed eyesight correction in the past, it’s recommended that you have a check-up with your optometrist or eyesight specialist at least every 12 months to make sure your prescription is still accurate.

Even if your particular eyesight correction needs haven’t changed since last time, make sure you get an updated prescription that will remain valid until your next appointment (prescriptions are usually only valid for 12 months). This will save you money making extra appointments just to get a new prescription.

Ask if another brand will suit

Sometimes optometrists will suggest a specific brand for your eyesight correction based on fit and comfort—which is very important. But other times they will simply prescribe one of many brands that could service your needs because they are more familiar with it or have a personal preference.

Not all brands of contact lenses cost the same, so it’s worth asking your optometrist if you can switch to another brand without affecting the quality of your eyesight correction.
