Your last pair of contacts are bathing comfortably in saline solution on your dresser. You’ve got a jam packed schedule for the next week, but you know that you’ll have to squeeze in a trip to the optician if you want the ability to see for the next month. We all know the frantic panic that ensues from such a situation: do you blow off that important meeting, ‘forget’ to pick up the kids from school again, or just risk driving with your best sense working at less than full capacity? Alternatively, you could shop online for your contacts.
Buying contacts online is a simple solution to all the problems that come with venturing to the high street retailer whenever you’re running low. With a rattle on the keyboard and a few clicks of the mouse you can have your contacts shipped directly to you at a time that suits your busy schedule, and all from the comfort of your own home. Shopping online also allows you to browse around as many sites as you please for the best deal, meaning that you’re not limited to what retailers you can find on your street or in your town.
Online retailers and my personal favourite www.visiondirect.co.uk have long been known to stock the same or a greater selection of products as the typical high street retailers, all for less than the off-the-shelf price. Why? Because online shops don’t have to pay costly bills such as the rent on a piece of sought after commercial property, heating, lighting, losses due to damaged stock, and a whole list of other things. Shops which have switched to providing most of their services online not only do much better for business than their high street counterparts by cashing in on a much wider sphere of influence, they also provide customers with much better deals on the whole.
It is important to be careful, though, when looking for the best deal on contact lenses. These sensitive pieces of apparatus are dangerous if manufactured incorrectly, so be sure to stick to reputable sites when choosing your products. On the whole, the common sense approach prevails: if a branded contact lens kit is significantly cheaper on a lesser known site than from a reputable dealer, then there’s likely something amiss, and it isn’t worth chancing you luck with that potentially substandard product.
So if you’re tired of putting on your glasses and venturing to your local optician or pharmacy for your contacts, have the shops come to you, and shop online for your contacts. You’ll never go back to the high street again!
