Do you think you are spending far too much money on contacts every month? If yes, then you would be relieved to know that there are a few ways by which you can get cheap contact lenses without compromising on quality or running the risk of damaging your eyes.
The common perception is that if you buy from your optician, then there is absolutely no chance of getting good deals. That may not be entirely true – because if you opt to buy a huge quota from your optician’s clinic then there is a very real chance of him being able to match the price you are getting from any other outside retailer. Apart from the chance of getting them direct from your doctor, the other upside is that there is absolutely no risk of buying the wrong lens. Also, the box can be used to buy successive pairs from either online or offline stores.
You may also opt to purchase from an internet store. The only downside to buying from the internet is that there is a comparatively higher chance of getting cheated and palmed off with something you did not order. To avert any undesirable online shopping experiences, you will need to ensure that you are buying from a reliable and reputable online seller. On the other hand, the up side is that the internet is a haven for really low cost options; and that’s primarily because of the fact that these online shops have a very low cost of doing business as compared to their “real world” counterparts.
The third option is via mail order centres. These wholesalers manage to secure very good prices directly from the manufacturers – meaning that they are in a sound position to give you a good deal. As is the case with buying from the WWW, buying from this channel too comes with a pinch of risk.
In your efforts, you may also want to check your insurance policy to see if it covers these products. Usually a health insurance policy would cover glasses and lenses (provided the lenses are for vision correction purposes). If you have chosen to order online for cheap contact lenses on via a mail order wholesaler, be sure to take into consideration the delivery charges, freight insurance charges and return policies etc.
