Ordering Contact Lenses
|Date Added: February 25, 2010 01:51:11 PM|
I remember a few years ago my brother told me he needed to contact lenses. He did not want to go back to his eye doctor, because his eye doctor was over an hour away. Instead he wanted to try ordering contact lenses online. The problem with this was that he did not have an actual prescription for his lenses. He looked through all of his paperwork, and could find nothing. Then he remembered that he had never actually been handed anything from his eye doctor. He had been given a prescription for glasses, but there was not anything in writing for his contact lenses.
He went online to see what he had to do about ordering contact lenses. Though I think the site he went to was 1-800-Contacts, I have no idea. Whatever the site was, they told him that many doctors will not give out a prescription for contact lenses because they do not want them to buy anywhere else. After reading this e-mail, my brother decided that he was going to go ahead and order his lenses anyway. The site told him that when ordering contact lenses all he had to do was look at the side of his contact lens boxes. The prescription for the lenses was right there. Once they had his order, they would call to confirm with his doctor that the order was correct, and his contact lenses would be on the way.
When ordering contact lenses, remember that you should never order from anyone who does not confirm your prescription with your eye doctor. You should never use lenses that are expired, and you should never get them from someone who gives them to you with no questions asked. Contact lenses are something that you put right on your eye, and you should never take any sort of chance when it comes to your eye health. Always make sure you are ordering contact lenses from a reputable source so that you do not inflict any damage to your eyes.
If you have problems ordering contact lenses through an online web site, you may have to stick with ordering them to your doctor. This may be the best idea if you need specialty lenses anyway. Just remember that ordering contacts should not take six weeks as is often the case with some eye doctors. In most cases, contacts order to your eye doctor should come within two weeks. If they do not, you may want to consider ordering contact lenses from someone else. Though it is important to have the correct lenses, it is just as important that you get the updated versions if your prescription has changed as soon as possible.
