You probably know that a monthly supply of daily disposable lenses will cost you more that than a pair of monthly disposables. However, contact lens manufacturers constantly work to decrease the production costs of lenses, so the prices gradually go packman carts.
If you compare the cost of Acuvue 1 Day and Acuvue 2 (popular daily and 2-week disposable contact lenses), dailies would cost you about twice as much, from most retailers. However, bear in mind that while wearing daily disposable contact lenses, you don’t need to buy storing and cleaning solutions. Also, if you wear contact lenses only 3 or 4 times a week, the cost would be even less.
To save on your contacts, buy them online. And for even greater savings, order a full year’s supply of lenses. Many Internet shops give you additional discounts for a full year supply or a substantial rebate off your next purchase.
If you are currently prescribed annual replacement or monthly disposable lenses, ask your doctor if he or she can switch you to daily disposables. The health of your eyes is very important, and you will appreciate the difference disposable lenses can make.
