super off topic....im looking for feedback from u.k. members about...contacts...

#1
Hey guys. This was the first place I could think of where I could get input from u.k. forum members.

Im looking to purchase some contacts online (my Rx just expired...im low on contacts and can't get in to be seen for weeks)...So rather than be blind for the next month....I'm want to know what websites are legit in the uk before ordering.

Here in America we have places like lens crafters...sight for sore eyes...etc. but im very unfamiliar with uk offerings.

I was led to the u.k . Specifically since its my understanding a current rx is NOT needed for contact purchases in your country but I don't want to end up ordering from a scam website who will send me no contacts or fakes.

Thanks for your time guys. I really appreciate the help in advance!

My knowledge on UK culture is a bit rusty, but I believe if you sacrifice a goat and replace its heart with a human one, a posh agent will be there with a glass of Champagne and your current prescription of contacts

Also this is why I keep glasses around too

And also wtf Britain why do you hate good eyesight as much as you hate good teeth

I've been using them for six years now and haven't gone blind yet. Saved me a fuckload of money too.

if I was the OP and you said this to my face as hard as I could without being telescopic, a few quick jabs to the bridge of the nose and then a tooth crunching uppercut would knock the snot out of you real good.

Then I would do a Joe Pesci when you hit the ground.

Try to have a little empathy .

I haven't gotten an Rx in the US for 6 years. It's not a drug, it's a fucking lense, I punch in the numbers, they send me what I ordered.

I guess your insurance won't cover it, like they wouldn't cover you buying a wheelchair unless a doctor recommended it. Doubt they'd cover contacts from the UK also, so that's not really relevant.

I'm paying totally out of pocket no matter what stratkat so I could care less if I get them here or from the u.k.

I wear dailies too. I bought a year supply last year and it cost me 700 USD. . That's insane. I also have astigmatism which drives up the cost of my lenses more than typical wearers without astigmatism because I need the special toric lenses.

I wear focus dailies

Also thanks for the replies guys.

I do have glasses fyi but I also go on multiple mile jogs through my city everyday as apart of my regular workout routine. I have no problems seeing to read or for things up close...it's at a distance I'm blind and jogging on city streets without contacts is semi dangerous for me.

There's stray dogs and obviously cars to look out for. That's why I need this emergency contact lens order for those who were wondering. I fully intend to get my eyes checked soon though
