Buying contact lenses online can save you a ton of hassles and money. But like any other online purchase, there's a right way to do it and a wrong way. At Lens.com, we have been helping our customers purchase their contacts the right way since 1995 by telling them the most important secrets to buying contact lenses online. We'll let you in on our secret!
Secrets to Buying Prescription Contact Lenses Online
Secret #1 - Don't leave your optometrist's office without your prescription.
Your eye care practitioner is required, by law, to freely hand you a copy of your prescription before you leave his/her office. Most contact lens wearers are unaware of this key fact, but it has been a requirement for eye care practitioners since 2004, when President George Bush signed "The Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act" to allow you to shop around for the best price on contact lenses.
Secret #2 - Know the difference between Replacement and New contact lenses.
Only order replacement contact lenses online. When you order contact lenses you have worn successfully, that is defined as a replacement contact lens. If your Doctor of Optometry says "try these lenses," then that's a new prescription.
Online retailers sell replacement contact lenses. If you are happy with the fit of the contact lenses that you're currently prescribed, then go right ahead and order your replacement contact lenses online. At Lens.com, we carry a wide selection of contact lenses so you can select your contact lenses on our website at a great low price!
Secret #3 - Don't order the wrong product. Make sure you get your prescription right!
In the world of contact lens prescriptions, there is no room for error. They need to be correct so they can work great, or else they're not going to work properly for you.
Lens.com provides Rx verification from your eye care provider to ensure that your prescription has been entered correctly.
Secret #4 - You save more money by buying more at one time, so stock up and save!
Buying more means saving more especially when it comes to buying contact lenses. Lens.com was the first online retailer to cut costs on annual supplies. Today's online technology allows you manage your contact lens supply so that you're worry-free and you'll never run out of contacts. To make your life easier, we'll remind you when it's the right time for you to reorder more contact lenses.
Now that you know our secrets, shop at Lens.com and find your contact lenses at an affordable low price!

A package of lenses was recently lost in the mail (not your fault). Lens.com immediately sent a replacement box...no questions asked. That bought my loyalty, plus the fact that all my orders have been handled efficiently.
