5 smart ways to save on your contact lenses

You don’t have to spend a fortune to reap the benefits of wearing contacts. With a few thrifty tips, you can save on your lenses without ever compromising on quality or comfort. Ready to get saving? 

Shop online

Buying lenses online is easy and almost always cheaper than shopping on the high street. Why? Well, online retailers don’t have the cost of a physical store, which means we can pass on those savings to our customers. So you can still shop all the best brands without the high price tag. Ideal, right?

On top of that, ordering online is fast and fuss-free. We know life’s busy, so we’ve made it really easy to top up in just a couple of clicks. And if you order by 11 pm, we'll deliver to your door the next day. 

There's a lot of choice when it comes to contact lenses. If you’re unsure how to choose a reputable online company, popular review platforms like Trustpilot and Feefo are a great place to start (did we mention that over 55,000 customers have rated us 'Excellent' on Trustpilot?). 

Consider switching to monthlies

When choosing a lens, it’s wise to consider how often you’ll wear them. Despite the need to also buy contact lens solutions, monthlies are considered the cheaper option for the full-time wearer. If you prefer to alternate between specs and lenses, daily disposables may be a more cost-effective option. 

Get free eye tests 

We know, we know we’re always shouting about the importance of regular check-ups. That’s because, for us, an eye test is about much more than measuring how well you can see. It’s also about protecting your eye health — and ultimately, your long-term vision. 

Unless you’re entitled to a free eye test on the NHS, a check-up can set you back around £15-30 (double that if you need a contact lens check-up). We’re big believers that you shouldn’t have to choose between your eye health and your wallet. That’s why we offer free eye tests and contact lens checks to all our customers, which saves you up to £60. It’s super-simple to book — you’ll find all the info you need here

Look out for money-saving schemes 

On top of big brand savings, we’ve also got some thrifty money-saving schemes in place: 

Refer a Friend: Get a £5 Amazon voucher each time you refer a friend to Lenstore. The rewards are limitless — the more friends you refer, the more you’ll earn. We’ll give your friend 10% off their first order, too. 

Auto-Reorder: Save 5% on all orders and take the stress out of ordering lenses.

Stock up & save 

Buying in bulk is a great way to save a few extra pennies (and the planet!). A 90 pack of dailies often works out slightly cheaper than a 30 pack. It might be a small saving, but it all adds up.

What’s more, stocking up means you’ll save money on delivery and reduce waste. It's also once less thing to think about! 

When it comes to contact lenses, quality and comfort are key to keeping your eyes healthy. But that doesn’t mean you need to shell out big bucks for top-notch brands. With dailies from 71p per day and monthlies from just 30p, we’ve got lenses for every budget. You can browse our huge range of great value contacts, solutions and accessories here.
