purchasing contact lenses online

Hi,

I'm sure this issue has been covered before, but I tried the search facility which came up blank.


Does anyone order contact lenses online and have them delivered to Turkey (if purchased outside Turkey)? And if so, which company do you use and how reliable is the service?

I tried contacts for the first time a few years ago and found them to be quite comfortable but as I have astigmatisms they worked out quite expensive, and I decided against wasting the money as I'm generally quite happy wearing glasses.
However I've decided to get daily disposable contacts for when I go out to dinner/clubs, so that I don't have to take my bulky glasses case in my little clutch purse (only enough room for a lippy and small comb I'm afraid )
I had the required tests today but was messed about quite a bit by the ILKE private hospital and ended up going to another specialist eye hospital, Alphagoz, in Balcova, so I didn't make it back to the store to place my order.

So I'm looking for any advice regarding buying on line, or else I'll order them in Izmir from Agora.

Thanks,

Charlotte

Charlotte, I know nothing about contact lenses but a couple of years ago my brother-in-law came over from the States and had forgotten his. We went into Ayvolic and we found the same make he uses at home. He had to wait a couple of days but they got them.

They were the one day type and he was very pleased with them and found they were cheaper than in the USA. The point I am trying to make is that with a wider search you might find what you need here.

Re: purchasing contact lenses online

Yes, I have purchased them in Turkey, the multi focal ones, both monthly and daily ones and they are great to swim in and go out in, so just check around and give them the perscription (details only) andget a price in a few places and then decide on the best choice. It will be ok. Good luck.
