If you have never worn contact lenses before, than it would be a good idea to get a free pair to try out, before committing to purchasing them and later realizing it was not the best choice to suit you. They can take some getting used to – especially if you have worn glasses in the pass or maybe you would like them just for cosmetic reasons. Contact lenses can be a fun alternative to wearing glasses, giving you a different look.
Whatever the case may be for you to desire contacts, you will need to get a prescription from an optometrist (your local eye doctor). Even if you recently received a prescription for a pair of glasses it will not be the same for contact lenses. Your eyes have to be fitted to ensure you will get the correct size for your eyes. So they will fit perfectly and want cause irritation or other problems to your eyes. Getting a pair of trial contacts is a great idea, but by law you will need a prescription to get them, regardless.
There are some companies you can visit online, that offer a free trial pair of contact lenses such as Bausch & Lomb and Acuvue. There you can find out all the information you need to receive a free pair of contact lenses. Usually it just involves filling out all of your contact information and submitting it to allow them to send you a voucher to receive your free contacts, but make sure to read the fine print to ensure you do not have to enter into anything requiring you to purchase contact lenses from them after you have received your free pair.
The purpose of contact lens companies offering a free contact lenses is to pick up potential customers. Whom hopefully will be happy with the product and service they received from the company of their choosing, and in turn the contact lens company gets a loyal customer. Who will decide to purchase further contact lenses from them? In this situation everyone will benefit from the free trial. Of course the consumer will benefit the most, they will have a number of companies to choose from, deciding which company would be the best for them to get their contacts from.
If you have not received your prescription from your optometrist yet, than this would be a good time to do so, you will get a lot of valuable information that you may not know. As well as discuss with your doctor your options and what would be the benefits and draw backs, if any to wearing contacts, rather than glasses. You may even be able to receive a sample pair of contacts even the color contact lens directly from your Optometrist and see if this would be the right thing for you.
