Have you been browsing for a convenient way to order your contacts? We understand that it can be time-consuming to drive to a nearby optical store when you run out of your prescription. It can also be challenging to make time when your schedule is packed during opening hours. 


But don’t worry. We have another solution to keep you from waiting for your vision correction until the last minute: ordering your contacts directly from us. 


Here are some things to consider about buying contact lenses online:

Is it possible to buy contact lenses online?

Many retailers sell contact lenses online, including For Eyes. When you buy from us, you will even receive free shipping on orders of $99+. This is an excellent opportunity to save time and trips to the eye doctor by getting your contacts in bulk. 


The great thing about buying contact lenses online from our website is that it’s almost as easy as getting them in store. Start by clicking here. You can input your prescription for each eye and confirm your order in a few simple steps. 


It’ll ask you for your eye doctor’s name, phone number, and fax number, as well as their city and state. You’ll also need to know your last eye exam date and your prescription expiration. 


Have a discount code from the Special Offers section of our website? Simply add the code in the designated place before proceeding to the shipping. Once you get to the shipping portion, there’ll be a place to make your selection, or it will default to free shipping if your order exceeds $99. Your contacts will ship in one to two days.

What should I know before ordering contacts directly from your website? 

  • You’ll want to know your prescription for contact lenses, so if you haven’t had a contact lens exam with one of our Independent Doctors of Optometry, you may want to book one first. To do so, all you’ll need to do is give your local optical store a call to find a day that works for you. You can also stop by and ask about our walk-in eye exam availability. 
  • Your prescription can vary from year to year. Therefore, if you haven’t had a comprehensive eye exam or contact lens exam in 365 days, it’s best to see an eye doctor to ensure your eyewear prescription is current.
  • There are many types of contact lenses available on our website. To find the best one for you, take a look here to see which one suits the qualities you need before buying your contact lenses online. 
  • The only thing you can’t do is order contacts online with insurance. You’ll need to go in person if you wish to use your vision insurance benefits. 

Summary: How can I get contact lenses shipped to my house?

For Eyes is one of the best places to buy contacts online. You can get your contacts directly from us and have the order shipped to you. All you’ll need to do is visit our ordering page, select your preferred contact lens brand and style, input your prescription, choose your shipping method, and add your payment information.


The process of buying contacts online is simple and straightforward. It takes mere minutes, and your shipment confirmation should come through within two days. Just keep in mind that before placing your order, you’ll need to know your prescription for each eye and your optometrist’s contact information. 


Save yourself time, and buy your contacts online for the next round you need. It’s easy to do and just as effective as visiting an optical store.
