Not only can you purchase the most high-quality brands recommended by opticians, but they’re also often cheaper compared to traditional retailers.
Can I order contacts with my glasses prescription?
No, prescriptions for glasses and contacts are different. Since glasses are placed in front of your eyes, the correction differs from contacts that are placed directly onto your eyes.
The indicated for each eye (OD and OS) to correct your vision will also vary depending on the type of contacts.
Your eye care professional will need to examine you to determine which level of correction you need. Take a look at our stores to set an appointment with an optometrist if you don’t already have one.
Your specific prescription will determine which contacts are suitable for you. Your eye care professional will specify particular features such as:
- Base Curve (indicated as BC)
- Diameter (DIA)
- Lens Brand
- Expiration Date
While shopping online, make sure to read your prescription carefully and indicate each of the above details, as well as the lens power for each eye.
How do I choose contact lenses?
There are many types of contact lenses. Your choice will depend on your vision requirements, according to your prescription.
Modern technology has made it safer and easier to shop for eyewear. It’s about finding the contacts that fit for your eyes and your own specific needs. The best contact lenses are those that feel comfortable, offer optimal vision and fit your lifestyle!
