I'd like to buy some 1 Day contacts cheaper than what my eye doctor charges.
Has anyone had experience with buying contacts online?
Thank you.

Thank you, Dollydo. I'll check it out!

I've purchase from AC lens for the past four years; it was recommended by an optometrist when I lived overseas and their prices are great!

Thank you, Oreo's mom. I'll check them out too as I only ordered a 30-day supply from Vision Direct.
BTW, my neighbor has a goat named Oreo.

Walmart will be cheaper than your doctor's office but Sam's Club will be cheaper than Walmart. If you are a Costco member they should have them cheap too!

Just a few months ago I got.my eyes checked at our local Walmart's vision center and I asked them the price per box for the disposable contact lenses I wear (biomedics55 on one eye which is a fairly light prescriptionn and Preference Toric by Coopervision on my other highly astigmatic eye). They kept pushing for the Jonhson and Jonhson brand which was quite pricey and in my opinion it was no different than the biomedics55 I usually get. And their price per box for the biomedics55 was higher at Walmart than AC Lens. After going back to try a a trial pair I asked for my prescription and ordered them online at asignificantly reduced price. BTW my canine fur baby is Oreo! Good luck!

I also prefer Biomedics lenses. They are approved for overnight wear and I really like not having to take them out everyday. I wasn't happy with Walmart's price for these lenses but I don't belong to Sam's or Costco. I will keep this post in mind when I get my eyes examined again.

Thank you.
I did it for years and had good results. I don't blame you for wanting to give it a try. They are the same contacts your doctor is selling and yes, a much better price. I would check with places like Sam's and Cosco first if you have one near and are a member.
