Where do you get YOUR contact lenses?

At the risk of sounding like a total asshat....I have special eyes.
There I said it.

Really though....where?
I order mine from my optician's office. Waaaay too expensive.
Have you found a cheap solution? Is 1-800-CONTACTS a reliable and frugal choice?

    I found that 1-800-Contacts is a few dollars cheaper per box than my eye doctor's office. You can check the prices on their website without signing up for anything.

    Yup, I usually pay about $100 a year for the exam, then take the script to walmart. this year I have eye coverage on my insurance so it will be a bit cheaper.

    I only up date my glasses every couple of years as long as my prescription hasn't changed.


    Quoting emandab:

    You have to have a prescription though right?

    Even though I work for target, I get them from walmart... I like being able to buy them straight off the shelf and not wait for them to be ordered.

    Costco is cheapest, 1800 contacts/Walmart next cheapest unless you go to some online warehouse type place. But I worry about cheap knock offs from them. They're my eyes, I only get 2 this I tend not to go on the cheap for their needs. Lol

     I was getting mine from the eye doctor, but damn..I paid 70.00 for 2 boxes(1 for each eye, I have a different prescription for each eye).

    go to walgreens.com  I just checked mine there..and going to order. I'll pay like $41.58 w/ free shipping for 2 boxes!!

    I love Walgreens :)
