Checklist for Ordering

If you are thinking about purchasing or ordering your contact lens through the mail, by phone or online, there are a few steps you need to take to make sure your transaction goes as smoothly as possible.

First, make sure that you have had a recent eye exam. If you haven’t been examined by an eye doctor within two years, your contacts may not be correcting your vision as well as you might have thought. Even if you have been wearing glasses for years, the health of your eyes change with age and it is a good idea to routinely get them checked out.

Next, check the expiration date on your prescription to ensure that it is not outdated. Always use a current prescription when ordering contact lens. Many online optical sites have forms that you fill in based off of the prescription information. By having your current prescription ready, you can avoid any problems that may occur when filling out submission forms.

Once the order for contact lens has been placed and received, thoroughly check the contents of your package to make sure that it coincides with your prescription exactly as intended. Pay close attention to diameter, power, curve, and brand name. Any discrepancy in any of these areas means that you have been sent the wrong contact lens. If you have any questions concerning your lens, contact your eye practitioner.

Ordering contact lens from outside vendors is convenient and oftentimes less expensive in comparison to purchasing them from your doctor’s office. However, because you are dealing with someone outside of your personal eye practitioner, it is imperative that you have the correct prescription information available. Your visual health is too important to leave any detail to chance.
