Four different contact lenses

It's quite easy to order contact lenses online. The only thing you need is the contact lenses box for your current contact lenses.

Once you've found your contact lenses box, simply follow our 3 step guide:

  1. Find your contact lenses in Lenspricer's database
  2. Select a store that sells your specific model
  3. Put in your prescription and order

1. Find your contact lenses in Lenspricer's database

The specific brand and model of your contact lenses is on the box:

1-Day Acuvue Moist

In this example, the brand is 'Acuvue' and the specific model is '1-Day Acuvue Moist'.

You can either use the search bar to find your contact lenses directly, or you can find the brand first in our contact lenses overview, and then browse for your specific model.

2. Select a store that sells your specific model

Once you have found your contact lenses, you will see an overview of all of the stores that sell your contact lenses, and how much each store sells them for.

We suggest that you select the cheapest store, but all of them are fine to use.

3. Put in your prescription and order

Once you've clicked on a store, you will be taken to the page where you will enter your prescription and order the contact lenses.

The prescription you must enter is found on the back of your contact lenses box. The numbers to look for are shown in the example below:

1-Day Acuvue Moist Prescription

The numbers that you should fill in are:

  1. PWR / Power
  2. BC / Base Curve
  3. DIA / Diameter

Your prescription for your left/right eye may not be the same. In that case, repeat this process for each eye.

Once you've entered your prescription, you are done and you can order your contact lenses.

Please note:

Receiving your contact lenses

When you receive your contact lenses, check with your old contact lenses box to make sure that you ordered the correct prescription.

Remember that you should still see an optometrist regularly to make sure that your prescription is up to date and that your eyes are healthy.
