Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
Daily disposable contact lenses
or one-day disposables
are contact lenses you can discard every night and replace in the
morning with fresh ones. Day contact lenses have many advantages, for
example, no lens cleaning is required. Also, there's no accumulation of
substances found naturally in your tears, on your lenses. Disposables
are not worn overnight, so you have less risk of contact lenses-related
eye health problems.
Daily disposable contact lenses are very affordable, and they'll cost you about $1 per day. Purchasing disposable soft contact lenses over the internet can save you money and it's very convenient compared to buying contacts from your doctor's office or optical stores. Remember, there is no single best place to order contact lenses online.
Here are some of the points to watch out for when buying daily disposable lenses on the Web:
Disposable contact lens sellers range from large companies to smaller businesses with no full-time staff. Smaller retailers may offer attractive prices on their sites, however they may not offer the services and products you are looking for. Larger contact lenses sellers are more stable companies and they may be able to ship your contacts faster.
Make sure the site offers customer support. Customer support is important if you encounter some problems. Reputable contact lenses sellers should provide a toll-free phone number and a contact form on their site.
The ordering process should be secure. Most reliable sites have SSL encryption. When you reach an online order form, check the address of the page at the top of your browser. It should begin with "https" and not with "http". Also, there should be a padlock icon (locked) in your browser's status bar. Other signs to look for on a retailer's site are the Verisign logo or a 'hacker safe' logo.
All contact lenses sellers request confirmation of your prescription from your eye care practitioner (ECP). Your ECP is legally required to confirm the prescription within eight business hours. If your ECP fails to respond to the seller's request within eight business hours, the law allows the seller to assume the prescription is valid. This legal request may delay the shipping of your contact lenses by one day.
Make sure you know what are shipping and handling fees and avoid sellers that are incorporating extra fees without any explanation. It's recommended that you buy larger quantities of contact lenses, such as three boxes instead of one, to eliminate or reduce shipping charges.
