However, though there are several cheap lenses available in the market, the choice is limited when happens to be in the US because most of the contact lens companies are wary of selling lenses without a prescription.
So, a cheap non-prescription lens is hard to find. The manufacturers of the contacts feel that user’s safety is a major issue in selling non-prescription lenses. However, there are still many companies that sell non-prescription lenses and the internet is the best place to find them.
Now, the deal is to be between you and the sellers of the lenses. So, there are a few things that you must bear in mind.
- First and the foremost, remember that you are buying a product that is to be worn against the sensitive tissues of your eyes. So, safety is the chief concern here, especially when you are going for a cheap pair of lenses. Buy only when you can trust the sellers. Check the antecedents of the company and ensure that the company is a reputed one.
- Once you get the lenses, go to the eyes specialist and have the lenses examined by him. Tell him the price of the lenses so that he understands what he is examining is a cheaper version. Ask for his advice and if his opinion is not favorable, it is better that you tuck the lenses away for good, for no matter how cheap they are, they’ll prove far too expensive in the long run.
- Take due care of the lenses because cheap lenses are much less tolerant to damage, and damaged lenses can injure your eyes. Keep them clean and disinfect them regularly.
- Do not share your lenses. Sharing them is injurious particularly when the lenses in question are cheap non-prescription lenses.
