Taking care of your health is one of the best things you can do for yourself. It’s more, with prevention, such as regular check ups, you not only will avoid bad situations, you will save a lot of money by not having to pay for costly cures. Take dental care for example. You are much better off brushing your teeth regularly and visiting a dentist twice a year than paying thousands for an implant or a crown. Another important part of said prevention is eye care. Getting regular check ups is very important because your vision evolves with age, and you want to have the most adequate product at all time. Like contact lenses. Yes, you can buy them online and save yourself quite a bit of time and money in the process. But that doesn’t mean you should forego your check ups. Using the wrong contact lenses for your vision can have dramatic effects.
That said, you only really need the eye test, and once you have your prescription from your optician, you are free to keep shopping online for a good deal. Some opticians will offer an all inclusive package for a monthly fee, but in most cases, you are better off buying your contact lenses online. Why? because you can get the generic brand instead of the fancy optician brand. Inside the box, that is actually the same contact lenses that you will find, at a cheaper cost.
Buying your contact lenses and solution online is pretty easy, and you can find what the generic product is based on what you generally buy. There are charts to help you find the equivalent of your usual high street brand. By buying in bulk, you can save time, and also save even more money, but remember to buy just enough until the next check up, just in case your vision evolves and you need a different kind of contact lenses. Ask your optician how often you need to come in, or look up places that offer free eye tests. Under certain conditions, you can get one from the NHS as well. Repeat the process for the whole family, especially children, to make sure they have either good vision or the proper glasses or lenses to help them.
