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.
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.
Specsavers Own Brands
Specsavers Opticians take common brands of contact lenses, like focus or Biomedics, and rebrand them to their own brand label. The result of this is that contact lens customers cannot easily identify what the real brand names are of their contact lenses. As a result you cannot go online and reorder the real branded product, like Focus Dailies and are locked into buying your contact lenses from Specsavers.
A good example is that you have been prescribed Specsavers Easyvision Daily Virea. This is a very commonly prescribed daily lens called Focus Daily Aquacomfort Plus from the manufacturer Alcon, and rebranded by Specsavers to their own brand. Using the table below you can easily see which brands are relabeled and buy the original brands online, often saving money and time.

Just because you regularly use Specsavers’ lenses doesn't mean you need to rely on visiting this company’s shop every time you need a refill. Indeed, all of the lenses sold under the Specsavers label are available on Contactlenses.co.uk at steep discounts.
Vision Express Branded Contact Lenses?
Vision Express Opticians take the Manufacturer branded lenses and repackage them to their own label. This makes it difficult for you, as the consumer, to work out exactly what you are wearing and makes it harder for you to go online to compare prices. This ties you into their brand.
A good example is the Vision Express lens Eyexpert Pure 1 Day. This is more commonly known as Myday - a daily contact lens from Coopervision that has been taken by Vision Express and repackaged and rebranded to make it appear as if it is their own daily contact lens. However, as the table below shows you, It is exactly the same lens as Myday.
Please see the table below where you can find the same exact contact lenses yet with original branding and at a cheaper price.
Why Do Boots Optician take Brand Contact Lenses, like Focus Dailies, and Rebrand them to Boots Label?
Boots High Street Opticians take regular commonly available contact lenses produced by companies like Alcon (previously known as Cibavision) and Coopervision and repackage them into their own rebranded boxes with a new name. This prevents the customers from going online and easily buying their contact lenses, where they could save money and time.
A good example of this is Boots Premium Dailies. This contact lens is commonly available online, but in it's original form is called Focus Dailies All Day Comfort. Now you can buy it directly, probably cheaper and certainly in a more convenient manner - shipped directly to your door.
Please see the table below so you can find the equivalent contact lenses linked to the corresponding products that we sell online to your Boots branded lenses.
