End the Contact Lens Cycle

Category: LASIK

How Many Contact Lenses Do You Have Left?

As if the pain and annoyance of contact lens irritation and intolerance weren’t enough, contact lens wearers have many other hassles they go through every day, just to see clearly.

Millions of people plod through every week, opening a new box of contact lenses every Monday. Until one day, they finally open the last box and realize it’s time to make a dreaded doctor’s appointment for an eye exam. Frequently, this means taking scheduled time off from work or school, a different form of contact lens intolerance. The struggle is real!

An Endless Cycle of Fittings, Samples, and Online Orders

After getting a new prescription for your contact lenses, there’s the time spent with the contact lens specialist for your fitting. Do you keep the same lenses or try a new and improved lens that’s just hit the market? Does lens A feel better than lens B? Would you like to try lens C? After trying multiple lenses straight out of the sample pack in an allergen-free room, they all feel great. So, off you go home with three sample packs. You wear each for a week before deciding which lenses will carry you through the following year, hopefully with minimal contact lens irritation.

Alternatively, in the soon-to-be-post-COVID world, it’s now preferable for many to just skip the hour-long fitting and order contacts online. After all, it’s the twenty-first century. The options are unlimited.

But, buyer beware! Not everything you find online is as it seems. You might have avoided the trip to your eye doctor, but now you have some things to consider. Do you trust the online company? Does the company offer patient support? Do they accept your insurance? It’s contact lens intolerance, but now instead of eye pain, it’s your head that throbs. These are your precious eyes, so don’t take that chance!

Before you finish that last box of contact lenses – Take back your vision: it’s time to check out options that will allow you to see clearly without allergens, dry eyes, and the dangers of falling asleep with your contact lenses in.

After your contact lens prescription expires, get ready for that dreaded moment to schedule an appointment with your doctor for another fitting, trial contacts, and then another follow-up appointment. Who has time for that? Why not schedule a different kind of appointment to free yourself from contact lenses altogether?
