If you want a simple, no-fuss place to take care of your eye health, Contacts Direct is it. The site accepts most major insurance providers and has a robust inventory of well-known brands. The user-friendly website makes ordering your supply a breeze, and you can typically count on a discount. Just be aware that if you need to return anything, you’ll have to foot the bill for shipping.
To start your order, you’ll need to create an account. From there, either enter in your prescription or take the site’s online vision exam. First, it will ask you to fill out a few brief questions to determine if you are eligible for an online prescription (i.e. when your last eye exam was, what type of eyewear you typically use, and your current prescription). You’ll also need to take a picture of your eyes (which you can do right from your computer or phone) so the doctors can check for redness or irritation. The whole process, including the eye exam itself, will take about ten minutes, and you’ll receive your prescription within the next two days.
All that’s left to do is order those lenses and they’ll be at your door in just a few days. Standard 7 to 10 day shipping is free, or you can pay to expedite.
Brands available include: Acuve, Air Optix, Biotrue, Precision1, Dailies, and more.
