Shop Local: Why You Should Buy Your Contact Lenses From Us

In this unprecedented time, it can be easy to let the little things slide… Like your contact lens supply. Before buying from an online, third-party platform, consider ordering from your local vision professionals at Eden Prairie Eye Care!

Here’s why you should buy your contact lenses from us.

Dangers of Buying Contacts from a Third Party

Online shopping is not so simple when it comes to eye health. Contact lenses are a medical device, and wearing the wrong type of lens could damage your eyes permanently. Some very real risks include:

  • Contamination: Online companies may not follow health requirements set by the FDA. This means the contacts you ordered might not be stored in a temperature-controlled environment. They could also be expired or contaminated by an unregulated factory environment.

  • Poor Fit: When you purchase contacts online, you run the risk of buying something that just doesn’t fit with your eyes - even with an up-to-date prescription. You could be purchasing incorrect corrective lenses or the wrong lens size.

  • False Promises: Sometimes you may think you are ordering one thing, but get something else entirely. For example, you ordered a lens made out of a particular material but receive a product made out of something else entirely.

  • Zero Education: When purchasing contacts from an optometrist you’ll receive wearer education, such as proper wear and removal. Online buyers forgo this session, leaving them vulnerable to potential health issues like poor hygiene and improper storage.

Your eye health isn’t worth saving a few dollars. Remember that your eyes are irreplaceable, and one mistake could cost you your vision.
