Lens Direct

LENS DIRECT

Lens Direct has many years under their belt of selling contact lenses sold by the top brands.

We also found the pricing to be competitive across the board and liked that we didn't have to buy a large quantity to save.

America's Best

AMERICA'S BEST

America's Best Contact and Eyeglasses are often found in a mall location where value priced eye exams and eyeglasses are the focus. They also offer a website selling a smaller selection of contact lenses that include many of the most popular brands sold today. We were disappointed that America's Best didn't have great pricing and also attempted to lure us in with an expensive membership that didn't equate to any additional savings.

Continued from above

There are a great many reasons why people choose to wear contact lenses over traditional eyeglasses. Some of these reasons include:

  • They allow a natural field of view, unobstructed by eyeglass frames
  • They do not fog up or get splattered by rain
  • They generally offer better sight correction than eyeglasses
  • Many people feel they look better and more natural in contacts than in eyeglasses

For your convenience, we've put together this contact lens cheat sheet that describes some of the different types of contact lenses and what you should expect from each one.

In addition to deciding which type of contact lens is right for you, there are a number of factors to consider when deciding where to purchase your contact lenses. Some of these factors include:

  • Variety.  Does the store offer the type of contact lens you need, with the features you want?
  • Cost.  Does the store consistently offer competitive rates for the contact lenses they sell?
  • Guarantee.  If you aren't happy with the product, can you return it for a refund?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best contact lens stores available today. We hope this information helps you save time and money when purchasing your next set of contact lenses!

The Latest Trends in Contact Lenses

Contact lenses have come a long way since the earliest blown-glass creations in the late 1880's. It was not until the 1950's that lenses were crafted that could be worn all day. Even so, lenses were fragile and expensive, and contact lens insurance was common.

The cornea in the eye does not contain blood vessels, so oxygen must be directly absorbed by the cornea from the air. In the late 1970's, doctors developed rigid gas permeable lenses that allow oxygen to pass through the lens material. Also in the 1970's, chemists developed contact lenses made from soft, flexible material, and these have become the most popular types.

Current contact lens research is involved in finding ways to increase oxygen transference to the cornea. Scientists are also working on ways to include antimicrobial ingredients in the lenses themselves. This helps with the identification and prevention of conditions resulting from contamination by foreign organisms and reduces bacterial infection.

Contact lenses must be periodically cleaned, then rinsed and disinfected before reuse. Lenses must also be stored in a liquid solution when not being used, for example overnight. In the past, each of these functions was performed by a separate formulation. More recently, multipurpose cleaning solutions have been developed that perform all these functions. There are even devices that clean and disinfect lenses using ultrasonic, ultraviolet, or vibration. The latest multipurpose solutions are effective against bacterial and fungal growth, and include ingredients to increase surface moisture and provide greater comfort to lens wearers.

Other areas of patient compliance also present a challenge. For example, if lenses designed for daily wear are worn overnight, there is an increased risk of corneal infection. The use of daily disposable lenses helps reduce contamination by inadequate cleaning or improper storage. A lens case lined with silver has been developed to help eliminate germs that might come in contact with the lens case.

Perhaps the most radical and exciting development in contact lenses is the work being done to create "bionic lenses". Still in the testing stage, these lenses include electronic circuits and infrared lights incorporated into the lens material itself to create a virtual display similar to a heads-up display in modern aircraft. Scientists are experimenting with using radio signals to power the lenses instead of conventional power sources, like batteries. With a built-in antenna, these lenses could communicate with a personal computer or other electronic device and be used for playing video games, education, training, or perhaps to provide warnings to people who are hearing-impaired.
