If you wear contacts, how much do they cost?

I know everyone pays different costs, but I was just wanting an estimate for RX contacts. I use to have some a long time ago, but I can't remember what I paid for them at all.

  • Depends on your vision but they usually run from $150.00 and can run up to $500.00
    Mine are expensive b/c I have astigmatism and my vision is very bad.

  • $20 for a box of 6 contacts. I have to change them every 2 weeks so it adds up. I usually just wear my glasses.

  • And I don't know if it will have any longterm effects on my eyes but I don't change my contacts every two weeks sometimes they last me for a month. When they start feeling dry and what not then I change them.

  • I didn't change them as recommended either. I changed them monthly because that seemed to be when the strength of the prescription wore down, and made it harder to see.
