How I Got My Contact Lenses for 31% Cheaper Than The Optometrist


It’s that time of year again, when I have to go to the eye doctor and they give me a slightly different prescription than last year, and I need to re-stock up on contact lenses. I lost my full-time job in May due to COVID, so I’m feeling extra wallet conscious, but I am not gonna compromise on my eye health by getting cheap contact lenses. As usual, my Doctor prescribed me my favorite 1-Day Acuvue Moist lenses that are super comfy, moist, and keep my eyes healthy. I love these lenses, but dailies are pricey, so before jumping in I decided to do my research on the cheapest way to get my lenses and explored several online options on top of the price my optometrist gave me.


The winner: ContactsCart!  Buying my lenses from ContactsCart was 31% cheaper than the price my optometrist gave me and 20% cheaper than other online options. I’ve added a handy chart below that shows the different prices for the exact same product. Adding to the convenience, ContactsCart is a subscription service that you can cancel anytime (including after your first box). They carry almost all contact lens brands, including lenses for astigmatism and colored lenses!
