Different lifestyles call for different eyewear, which is why it isn’t always so easy to figure out the best contacts for you. An optometrist can give you a prescription, but his or her office may lack the variety you feel is necessary to make a good choice. This is where online research will prove invaluable. Comparing different product reviews and selecting a company that can ship your purchase within a short span of time is definitely less expensive than buying through more traditional channels. Lens.com is a leader in direct-to-consumer contact lens shipment, offering the best prices you will find anywhere on contacts ranging from Purevision, to O2 Optix, to Acuvue Oasys.
What sets the website apart from more common outlets for eyewear is that we do not rely on retail space or licensed opticians in order to conduct business. Our overhead is very small compared to what a doctor’s office or mall front store is facing, and we choose to reflect that difference in the prices we place on our products. All major brands are represented in our comprehensive database and easily found with drop down menus or the search feature on the site. Our team of support representatives are also available during business hours to assist you through the prescription submission and ordering process to make certain you have an effortless buying experience.
We offer lenses for all levels of replacement cycles. Some users prefer to wear models that they can simply throw away at the end of a day of use. This eliminates the need for overnight storage or stocking up on tons of saline solution. But this can be a bit more expensive than going with brands that let you repeatedly use a pair for upwards of a month without any replacement. It all depends on your level of comfort and how much work you would like to have to put into your daily wear cycle. We even carry types that allow you to keep lenses in overnight for days at a time, such as Biofinity.
We can also provide contact lenses for astigmatism sufferers, known as toric lenses. Toric refers to the shape of the cornea (eyeball) of someone who has astigmatism and toric lenses are lenses that are shaped to fit on such a toric curve. Toric lenses are highly specialized because they have to stay right-side-up at all times; they have a “top” and a “bottom” unlike normal contact lenses. The difficulty of keeping toric lenses right-side-up is why they took so long to be developed and perfected, but now they are very common and are often even a superior solution over glasses for some astigmatism sufferers. The lenses carry a faint imprint to help you orient them right when putting them in each morning. Once in, the design of the back (concave) side of the lens helps keep them properly oriented, and a thinner construction means they’re lightweight and easy to wear for long periods of time.
And lens.com prides itself on staying on the cutting edge of colored contact lens options too. Fresh Look Colored Contact Lenses are one of our leading products here at Lens.com. People who try out FreshLook ColorBlends quickly come to rely on the brand because they create such a striking and believable difference in eye color. We frequently hear people say that people they meet can’t tell they are wearing contacts when they wear ColorBlends and that people assume it is their natural eye color. These lenses will draw people’s attention and get a lot of compliments. Even friends who know it is not your natural eye color will like the way it looks on you.
The reason ColorBlends are able to achieve such results is that they aren’t just tinted lenses. They are made with a special technology that combines layers of color on the lens. Each color of FreshLook ColorBlends is actually made with three different colors in it. They also allow just a little bit of your natural eye color to show through too, so that your natural color combines with the three color tones of the lenses to make for a striking, rich and convincing new eye color that is unique to you.
But to be clear, Lens.com only sells contact lenses to individuals with legitimate prescriptions provided by a licensed eye care provider, a prescription that any patient can obtain just by asking. Only an eye doctor can tell you what contacts, if any, are or are not appropriate for your eyes—but at Lens.com we can make sure that you can buy those contacts as cheaply, and get them as quickly, as possible.
