Why order your contact lenses by post from GetLenses when the high street’s full of opticians? Well, there are number of very valid reasons. Of course, opticians are qualified professionals who are there to help you with the health of your eyes but there’s no reason on earth why you should buy your contact lenses, supplies and accessories from them.
The rule is simple. Get your eyes tested. Get your prescription. Get your lenses here. Here’s why:
Cost. GetLenses is normally a lot cheaper than high street opticians because we keep our overheads as low as we can, buy in bulk and pass the savings on to you, our customers. There’s absolutely no difference in the lenses themselves: they come from the same factory, they’re made by the same people, using the same machines. We can undercut opticians because we don’t have expensive premises, high-cost staff nor expensive advertising campaigns.
Convenience. Why trudge to the opticians in the pouring rain to go and get your contact lenses and supplies? With GetLenses, you simply order online or over the phone and we’ll dispatch your contact lenses by post the moment it’s ready. Come to think of it, it may well be two trips to the optician: one to order your lenses, one to go back and pick them when they’ve arrived. We
carry over 1,000,000 lenses in stock, in our warehouse in York.
No prescription? No problem. In many cases, if you know your prescription, we can order your lenses via our Dutch sister company. Standard shipping is still FREE and only takes 2-3 days. Unlike in the UK, in the Netherlands, it’s not a legal requirement to check contact lenses against copies of prescriptions. So if you’ve misplaced yours, or your order will extend beyond the validity of your prescription, that’s no problem. Just leave it to us.
Auto reorder. Our customers love this: you simply work out when you’re likely to need more lenses and solutions and we’ll do the rest so you never have to run out again. We’ll send you an email ten days before your order leaves our warehouse so you can add to it or amend to it if you need to. If you prefer, we can just send you a reminder by text or email or both. Why not? All this is part of the service. Speaking of which…
Customer service team, based in York. We have an award-winning, UK-based, customer service team that will always be happy to answer any questions you might have. What’s more, we have an in-house optician so, if your query relates to eye health specifically, he can always deal it with for you.
Why not start shopping with us now? We have all the most popular lenses including these below – but we also stock some of the more obscure lenses. If you can’t find your lenses to your prescription on our site email us here or just give us a call. We can get virtually any type or power of lens on your behalf.
