Opticians OWN Brand Lenses - a consumer guide


`Own Brand` contact lenses are an attempt by the large high street chains of Opticians, mainly in the UK, to limit your choice of contact lenses and tie you into paying monthly payments.

Specsavers, Boots Opticians, Vision Express and Clulows all commonly buy lenses from contact lens manufacturers (Cibavision, Bausch & Lomb, Coopervision etc) and repackage them.

As a result the high street opticians often do not offer the best value for money.

In the past this would lock you into your high street optician, as it was very difficult to find out which lens you were really on. There are price savings on the internet of up to 70% on high street prices - but the customer could not benefit from this, as they could not work out which contact lens to order.

It also suited the high street opticians to tie you into a direct debit, but this might not have suited you. On Contactlenses.co.uk you can buy as and when you like, avoiding build ups of lenses and solutions when you are not wearing them 24/7.

The internet now makes it easy to find out which lens you are on and to order them as and when you want at discount prices.

Here is a list of some contact lenses that are repackaged. Click on the link to Buy direct from the UK at discount prices. Our team on UK 0345 319 3000 can help you find your contact lenses if they are not in the table below.
