Product Information

‘Store brands’ vs. National Brands. What you need to know to save you money.

First off, we’re all about saving you money on your contact lenses. Store brands (private label), such as Kirkland contacts from Costco, were developed using National Brands to lock you in to buying from a particular retailer. Congress saw through this blatant attempt to restrict competition. Through the 2004 Fairness To Contact Lens Wearers Act (FCLCA), Congress forced stores and eye doctors to freely reveal the National Brand equivalent to the private label products they are trying to force on you.

Bottom line, the contact lenses are identical. If you’re on this page to save money, you’re in the right place.

Whatís the difference between a Ďstore brandí (eg. Sofmed brand) and a national brand (eg. Biomedics)?
Location, location, location. Thatís the only difference. The contact lenses inside the blisters are identical to the national brands. By Law, the OD must let you know the name of the comparable national brand so you can shop around. You can thank your friendly Federal Trade Commission for that good news.
Why do private label contact lenses exist?
Itís pretty simple. Eyecare professionals want to keep you in their practice. They make lots of money off the sale of contact lenses. If they prescribe a brand you can only get from their practice, guess what? You have to purchase from them and they make the money. Prescribing national brands like J&J, Alcon or CooperVision allows you to shop anywhere you want. Youíre out of the ECPís control and saving money.
Can I sleep in Sofmed 55 Premier?
Sofmed 55 Premier can be worn while sleeping, and in this mode they are good for 7 days (as opposed to the normal 14). In order to be able to sleep with these contacts on you should 1st seek guidance from your ECP to determine if it's safe for you to do so.
Iím curious, whatís the history of private label contact lenses?
It takes two to tango. In this case the two dance partners are the contact lens manufacturers and the eye doctors. The manufacturers want market share, they want to sell more of their products to customers than their competitors. The ODs, back in the day before the internet, yes there was a time before the internetÖhad the field all to themselves. When mail order and then the internet came along and started eating into their profits from contact lens sales, the ODs turned to the manufacturers for a solution. And private label products were born. Best of both worlds, the manufacturers who came up with private labels gained market share and the ODs who participated denied their customers the freedom of choice to shop around for the best price. Enter Congress and the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act (Contact Lens Rule).
How does the Federal Trade Commission through the Contact Lens Rule handle the question of private label contact lenses?
Quoting directly from the Contact Lens Rule - ďFor private label lenses, however, you (online retailers) can substitute identical contact lenses made by the same manufacturer and sold under a different name.Ē And there goes the monopoly. Problem is, most consumers donít know when their eye doctor or Eyewear Chain engages in this behavior. If itís your first pair of contact lenses, how do you know itís a private label brand, designed and promoted to you so you canít shop around.
How long can you wear Sofmed 55 Premier?
