Q15. Should I buy contact lenses in store or over the internet?

A15. The choice is yours. Many people prefer to buy lenses over the internet as they are looking to save time and money. They like the freedom of choice and convenience as well as the chance of paying less than in store.

There are pros and cons for buying lenses over the internet or in store.

Price is an important factor but do not use this as your only benchmark. There is the fact that you are buying these from an unknown source and without any contact with a contact lens practitioner so make sure that you have a current prescription.

Review both sides before making a decision. For more information on this visit our where to buy contact lenses section.
