Best online for contact lenses?

Looking for reliable and cheapest online retailer for contact lenses where I can just punch in my prescription...

Also, what is good contact lens that is so good it doesn't feel like you are wearing them at all? (Brand and model)

Thanks.

I pricematched to 1800 Contacts. I've done it for a few years, and they've been solid.

It really depends on your own eyes. This is where it helps to go get a prescription from a local optometrist, then ask for samples. My optometrist was always willing to give me one pair of any brand I wanted just to see if they worked for me. I use Acuvue Oasys. Used to use Frequency 55 and found them to be too thick.

A pricematch is simply calling a store and telling them you've found a lower price and would like for them to match it.

You have to go see an optometrist anyway because you can't buy contacts without a prescription. They are supposed to get trial contacts for free so they can let you try them. I've been using B&L disposable torics for a couple of years. They are comfortable but I still don't like to wear them all the time because they feel a little dry after a few hours. I'm thinking of trying out Oasys myself but I've used Acuvue before and they were less comfortable than than the B&L.

that is where i ordered mine oasys as well. Every places you order online, they tag on the ins like $12 for the contact. Costs me $175 for one year supply of the oasys from coastal after i ask them for pricematch to lens.com.

coastal contacts is based in Blaine, WA USA.
