My name is Julie and I had the idea to start Contacts Advice a few years ago when I worked at an eye doctor’s office. While I was there, I noticed just how much contact lens wearers were overpaying for their contact lenses.
I did some research and found out that when you use your contact lens prescription to purchase contact lenses online, not only do you the exact same contact lenses you would get from your eye doctor, but you also get at a much lower cost!
Once I realized this, I went online to try to find the best place to order contact lenses online. What I found was shocking.
Even among online contact lens stores, prices varied by as much as 2X from one website to another. When I realized that even people who were shopping online were getting ripped off, I decided to put an end to it.
I started Contacts Advice, now the internet’s most comprehensive contact lens price comparison site.
