One of the reasons that people thinking of switching from glasses to contacts might be put off is the extra cost. While there are many benefits to having contacts, the price over a period of time can add up to a considerably amount. This is why many people are interested in getting free contact lenses, but is that really possible?
You can’t get free contact lenses forever but there is a completely legal way of getting samples to try out. Many contact lens manufacturers try to get people to start using their lenses by giving away free trials and this is a great way of seeing whether you like the product as well as getting some free lenses. The manufacturer knows that if you try the product and start to use their contact lenses then you could end up using them for many years to come, so it makes sense to give away a few free to begin with.
The best place to find these free trial contacts is online. As you are probably aware, all the major manufacturers of contacts have their own web presence and often offer these deals there. There is nothing stopping you from filling out forms for free trial lenses from many different manufacturers so if you have the time, then feel free to do that.
Once you have decided which of the manufacturers you are going to apply for a free trial you need to make sure that you have an eye test. An up to date prescription is vital if you want to get free trial contact lenses, and is always a good idea anyway. Most contact lens manufacturers will not let you get free sample lenses unless you first have a valid prescription that is up to date, which means that you got it within the last year.
You now have everything you need to go and order your free trial. Remember that although you are getting them for free at the moment you should still try and decide which of the manufacturers you prefer. Once the free trials run out you will have to make a decision on which one to stay with. Inevitably once you have tried contact lenses you won’t want to go back to glasses, so have a think about which of the contact lenses you like the best.
There are plenty of different offers for free contact lenses trials on the Internet and your optician may be able to advise you on some ones you may have missed too. Spend some time looking around at the various deals and see which one suits you best – or just sign up for them all – the choice is yours!
