Cheapest place to buy contact lenses?

For some years now I have got my prescription checked in Ireland and bought my contacts through the internet from AC Lens in America and have found them solid and reliable. 90 pairs of lenses has come in at €95 by the time I receive the box.

Is there any place cheaper in Ireland yet?

Thanks!

Hopefully we can get this thread stickied!

I have a particular requirement for Acuvue Trueye lenses and this is the outcome of my research of online providers - not all supply this lense type.

http://www.contactlenses.co.uk 90 day pair at €161.41 (£138 + £5 shipping)

http://www.contactlensesexpress.co.uk 90 day pair @ €145.61 (£129 - no info on shipping)

http://www.eyesite.ie 90 day pair @ €180


Notes: of course, prices are subject to change on the particular websites and currency exchange rates as of this date (converted where possible). I have not ordered from any of these websites nor had any other experience - use vigilance as when buying from any online website.

Thanking u for that link...ordered just one months supply to test them, 16 euro for 30 pairs and arrived less than a wk after ordering...you just put in your normal brand of contacts, in my case, Focus dailies and they'll send their version. neat small package too.

got my daysoft lenses following reading this thread and couldnt be happier, stopped using accuve moist because they were costing a fortune and then got specsavers own brand for nearly half the price but they were so bad i stopped wearing them. €16 for 32days supply with daysoft!!!!! brilliant. they feel the same as the accuve ones. they arrived in 5 days, no deliverey charge. another thing worth noting is you dont need to send them a copy of your prescription. It crazy how much the opticions here rip you off!

I've been getting these lenses now since they came out and I've just ordered my third 3 month supply batch.

£108.22 about €120 incl delivery. Accuity is one website but I order from the contact lens shop.co.uk and they price match.

Sis is going to Thailand next week. I believe they are even cheaper over there, might ask her to check it out and send me a batch home.

I was just copying the lines from the order comfirmination I received above

Total cost for 3 months supply is

Grand Total: €78.60 EUR

So for that I got 180 lenes i.e 2 boxes of 90

Lenses are never generally never quoted in pairs, 90 lens is 90 lens not 90 pairs

Hope that helps
