Does anyone order contact lenses online?

I'm thinking about ordering my lenses (Acuvue Oasys) online this time around b/c they're so expensive, but I never have before and am wondering if anyone has any advice of where to go?

  • I used to order my contacts from 1-800 contacts. All you need is your prescription info and the number of your eye doctor. They need that info to verify that it's the correct prescription. I didn't have any problems.

  • I use to order mine from 1-800-contacts. I was by far cheeper then getting them from the eye doc. but know I'm poor so I only have my glasses. I do miss contacts very much so if I ever have the money again I will go through 1-800-contacts online again. It was really easy.

  • I thought about 1-800-contacts,but they were more expensive than Coastalcontacts.com and another website I used many years back. Coastalcontacts were professional and fast and had good customer service. (They sent me the wrong contacts at first, but they refunded my return shipping and credited my account a few days later. And they added another free pair of awesome sunglasses.) Oh hey I checked prices right now and...Acuvue Oasys are $33.98/box on 1-800...right now its $21.14/box (its on sale...original $27.89/box) on Coastal.

  • 1-800-Contacts works for me. When you utilize them you can get 8% cash back on your purchase with them as well.

  • I usually check the price with online discounts & cash back by comparing stores below http://dollarise.com/view/deals/store/1800contacts Acuvue Oasys is $29.99/Box & 4% cash back.


    You can get Acuvue Oasys for $20.40/Box after Mail-In Rebate & 4% cash back at http://dollarise.com/view/deals/store/justlenses


    I think I have the best price.
