Order only the contact lenses that you have tried
We recommend ordering only the contact lenses that were perscribed for your eyes by a eye specialist at an optician's or at an eye-care centre. Changing to a new brand without trying it always poses a risk that the new brand will not suit you. Similar or the same parameters are not a guarantee of success. You can run the risk of losing money. Changing to a new brand without prior trial can, in the most extreme case, lead to health complications. Each wearer tolerates contact lenses differently. What suits your colleague does not have to suit you. Even if someone successfully changes from Acuvue 2 to Acuvue Advance, you may not be as successful.
Order contact lenses online only if you know their exact parameters.
Base curve – BC Diameter – DIA Cylinder – CYL (toric lenses) Axis- AXIS (toric lenses) Additional parameter – ADD (bifocal or multifocal lenses)
How to do your shopping
Find your brand of contact lenses, add them to the basket and select parameters according to the details on the box or on the plastic container in which the lens is stored. Immediately after that you will be shown the current number of items with the selected parameters in stock. Then you will be asked to fill in your contact details and confirm your order. The orders of items in stock are shipped within 24 hours of order placement.
Regular eye checks
We recommend that you have your eyes checked by an eye specialist (an ophthalmologist, if possible) at least once every 12 months. This applies to all contact lenses including coloured ones.
Like contact lenses, contact lens solutions are tolerated differently. The selection on the market is really wide – from basic physiological solutions used for rinsing through standard disinfecting solutions to high-quality solutions with the addition of lubricating substances, for example Laim-Care with the content of hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate. A separate group is comprised of hydrogen peroxide-based solutions whose effectivity surpasses classic chemical solutions. They are also much gentler to your eyes.
By using one brand for a period longer than 2 years, most people develop an allergy to the substances contained in the solution. Therefore, experts recommend changing different brands.
