Contact Lenses at Walgreens

Being able to see clearly greatly improves your quality of life. When your vision is properly corrected, you can see better to drive, watch a movie, participate in meetings and perform many other activities. Contact lenses allow you to enjoy the benefits of clear vision without having to wear prescription eyeglasses and can simplify vision correction. Walgreens makes purchasing and re-ordering contacts easier than ever with a wide selection of lenses that can be shipped to your home.

Why Contact Lenses

Contact lenses offer numerous benefits for those who are in need of vision correction. Unlike eyeglasses, contact lenses will not fog up due to changes in temperature, and they will not become smudged or smeared during the day. With contact lenses, you can wear sunglasses, protective eyewear and 3D movie glasses more comfortably, and your appearance won't be changed by wearing the lenses. In addition, contact lenses fully cover the eye, so that your vision is enhanced no matter which direction you look - a benefit that eyeglasses cannot provide.

Varieties of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses come in a wide variety of types, ensuring that there is something for everyone. Lenses come in two main varieties: daily wear or vial contacts that you continue to use day-in and day-out and disposable lenses that you wear for a specific period of time before throwing them away and using a new pair. There are a number of specialty types of contacts that are ideal for certain individuals. Color lenses change the color of the eyes while correcting vision, while toric lenses are made for people with an eye condition called astigmatism, which affects the way the eye focuses. Multifocal lenses improve both near and distant vision and are suitable for individuals who require bifocal eyeglasses.

Getting the Right Type

Before ordering contact lenses, you'll need to visit an optometrist to have an eye exam. The optometrist will determine what strength of lenses is ideal for your needs and what size lenses will best fit your eyes. He or she will also discuss your lifestyle and daily habits with you to help determine which variety of contact lenses will be the most convenient for you to use and will be the safest option for your eyes. Then, you will be provided with a prescription that states what brand, type, strength and size you should purchase.

Ordering Contacts Online

Once you have a prescription from your optometrist, you can easily purchase your contacts from Walgreens and have them shipped to your home. Start by finding the brand and style of lens that your doctor recommended. You can use the links at the left-hand side to make your search easier.

Once you have located the right lens, enter the information from your prescription. You can find this information on boxes of contacts that you have at home or on a paper prescription provided by your optometrist. After you make your purchase, you can fax a copy of the prescription to Walgreens to accelerate the processing of your order. If you do not fax a copy of the prescription, the Walgreens customer service team will contact your optometrist to verify the accuracy of the prescription and that it was issued within the last 12 months. Then, your contacts will be shipped.
