A lot of people prefer contacts over glasses, and I’m definitely one of them. Not only can I see better in them, they come with many other benefits. Contacts are better if you play sports, and theses days, the best contact lenses are so comfortable that you won’t even know they are on.
As far as I’m concerned, there is however one disadvantage to contact lenses, and that is cost. Below are some ways you can save more money on contact lenses.
1. Buy them online
You need to plan ahead a bit in order to order contact lenses online, since you need to factor in shipping. But I find that on the whole, I get much better deals by purchasing them online. What’s more, you can take advantage of coupons and promo codes from stores like Lens.com, saving you as much as 15% on your order.
2. Get regular soft contacts
Unless you have issues or a high level of sensitivity, daily disposables probably are not necessary for you. You will end up paying less money for your contact lenses by using regular soft contact lenses instead. Be sure to shop around and explore some of the cheaper options when it comes to contact lens brands.
3. Buy contacts in bulk
You’ll probably notice that many shops offer volume discounts. I buy a minimum of 4 boxes at a time to make sure that I get the most favorable prices possible. Keep in mind that by buying in bulk, you also get to use some of the more favorable online coupons as well. A deal I’m particularly fond of is the 15% off lens.com promo code available at CouponLeaf.
