Hidden Costs of Contact Lenses

When considering contact lenses it is important to consider costs such as cleaning solutions, replacement lenses, and travel and carrying cases as part of your purchasing decision. Many patients carefully evaluate the cost of the examination, fitting and lenses but neglect to consider the additional costs involved with caring for contact lenses. Cleaning solutions are the most significant additional cost involved with wearing contact lenses. An eye care provider will recommend a cleaning regimen including a specific brand of cleaning solution. Substituting a less expensive brand may compromise eye health and comfort.

You can get manufacturer rebates and sales on some brands, so check online or at your local drugstore for coupons before buying. Also, your eye care professional may also offer discounts on specific brands and solutions.
