If you are unsure what contact lenses to select have a look at lenseyes.com, or the Facebook page. This site has reviews on many different brands and lenses, as well as a collection of coupons for some. You find articles comparing Acuvue Moist and Trueye for instance, as well as an overview of the best colored contacts for dark eyes.
When buying contact lenses one has to abide by the restrictions of the state you live in. For instance in the US it is required that you have a medical prescription in order to be able to order contact lenses online. These restrictions don’t apply to most of Europe, so it is much easier to have your annual contact lens supply delivered to your front door.
But it doesn’t stop there, it is important to be well informed before you make purchase decision, since the prices on contact lenses vary drastically across online retailers such as 1800contacts.com, 1800anylens.com, glasses.com, aclens.com, discountcontactlenses.com and others. It is always recommended to look for rebates before making a purchasing decision and check sites like retailmenot.com for coupons in order to make sure you are buying at the best possible price.
But what brand should you even opt for? There are countless manufacturers and brands such as Alcon, Acuvue, Johnson & Johnson or Coopervision. In my experience the only way is to try a couple of different lenses until you find the one that suits you best. Personally I use acuvue oasys, but it took me several tries of other brands to find something that doesn’t give me eye irritations.
Same goes for the contact lens solution you are using, and the decision if you want to use daylies, weekly or even monthly lenses. The daylies are my personal favorite since they are the softest and the easiest on the eyes. You can keep your monthly lenses in even during night time according to some physicians, but I have only negative experiences with that.
