The Student Room’s customers save on average £140 per year on their prescribed brand of contact lenses.

What would you do with £140?


Young people drinking in a bar

A pint costs on average £2.06 at UK universities. Not that we’re encouraging binge drinking, but everyone needs a break from essay writing.
140 / 2.06 = 68 pints.


Stack of newspapers and magazines

For £140 you can get one-year student subscriptions for The Guardian, Creative Review and Vogue, and probably still have a few quid left for a cappuccino or two.


Clothes rail with clothing

Either buy contact lenses from the high street and eat baked beans for the rest of term, or buy contact lenses from and save enough for 12 Primark dresses.


Man exercising on a bicycle

Is the student gym membership fee the cost that kills off the rest of your social life? Buy contact lenses from, and the savings will cover the gym for a whole year.

Gain Confidence – Perform Better

According to a 2006 study at Ohio State University of Optometry, contact lenses significantly improve self-image, particularly in regards to physical appearance, athletic competence, and social acceptance. More than 25% of contact lens wearers in the UK feel more attractive when wearing contact lenses, and 15-24 year-olds are more likely than any other age group to feel strongly about wanting to get rid of their eyeglasses, market research agency Mintel reports. Nearly all children and teenagers prefer daily disposables to any other contact lenses because of their exceptional convenience. The only downside with these both hygienic and comfortable contact lenses is their slightly higher cost - but with even daily disposables come with a saving!

Flexible Delivery Address

You may be spending most of the year at a new address, while still spending the summers with your parents. Unfortunately, some opticians are incredibly difficult when it comes to address changes. With it’s a simple edit on your personal account page, and you can change your delivery address as many times as you like and even get your contact lenses delivered to a hotel somewhere in Spain if you need to (just call our team if you need an international delivery). If you have been thinking about buying contact lenses online for some time but been reluctant to tell your optician, the time when you are moving to go to university or start a new job is normally a natural breaking point.

Ferryhil, Co Durham (July 2009)

Excellent Service

Despite being abroad and needing quite a complicated contact lens prescription provided the contact lenses to an address of my choice and within 7 days. Their price was the cheapest by a long way as well as proving an extremely efficient service.


Wallington, Surrey (May 2009)

Good Service, Cheap & Easy

I've used twice now and will definitely continue to use them in the future. It's quick and easy to find the contact lenses you need and to refill the order the next time round. They are cheaper than other websites I have looked at and it's nice to receive emails to keep you updated about the progress of the order. I've had no problems and am happy with everything so far!

Edinburgh, Midlothian (July 2009)

Amazing Value

This is the first time I have used an internet based company to provide me with my contact lenses and I must say the service was excellent. I have quite a tricky prescription which usually takes 3-4 weeks to make via my optician and costs quite a lot. With I got my prescription within a week and saved £320 on what I normally pay for a 6 month supply. Would recommend this service to anyone, especially when looking for value for money. Great service.


Hightbridge, Somerset (July 2009)


Excellent, quick, efficient service and superb prices. I couldn't believe the prices compared to my Optician quote. I would recommend Lenstore to anyone. vs.
