In Australia and New Zealand, the law dictates that you need a valid contact lens prescription to purchase contact lenses. A contact lens prescription differs from a spectacle prescription because more information is required to ensure good ocular health. The information includes brand, size (curvature and diameter) and power. Your contact lens prescription is valid for 2 years.

When you’re about to confirm your order, there will be a box you’ll need to tick to confirm that you agree to our terms of service which outlines that you have a valid prescription obtained within two years of your purchase date and that you have checked that the lenses you have chosen are suitable based on your prescription / eye health care professional.  

How do I find my contact lens prescription?

There are two ways you can find your contact lens prescription:
1. From a script that your Optometrist has provided you
2. From the box of your current contact lenses

Contact lens prescriptions can be a little confusing to read. Below are the terms that you may come across and how they match to our ordering page. Not all fields will be required for your prescription.

How often should contact lens wearers get their eyes examined?

Although your contact lens prescription is valid for 2 years, we strongly recommend yearly check ups to ensure good ocular health and longevity of wear of your contact lenses. Although your prescription may not change, it’s always a good idea to make sure your eyes are healthy. Remember, if your eyes ever get sore, red or just don’t feel right, remove your contact lenses and see your optometrist as soon as you can.

Which contact lenses should I choose?

In order to choose the best contact lenses, it is essential to consider factors such as your lifestyle, visual needs, optometrist’s recommendation and your personal commitment to wearing and cleaning them. We stock yearly coloured contact lenses.

How can I reduce the risk of contact lens related problems?

Good compliance of contact lens care is crucial for trouble-free contact lens wear. The correct use of the contact lens solution that was prescribed by your optometrist (replacing the solution after each wear and rubbing your contact lenses with solution before storage) and replacing your contact lens storage case every 3 months will reduce the risk of complications.
