buying contacts without sacrificing quality of your contact lens let’s take
a look hello and welcome i am dr. joe allen
here from the doctor eye health show helping you learn about the eyes vision
and finding the best vision product so if you new here to the channel make sure
to hit that subscribe button down below and turn on notifications so that you
don’t miss any of my future videos also if you’re new to contact lenses this
video is part of a complete video series helping out beginners in contact lenses
if you’d like to check out that series I’ll hook that up in a link in the
description below so recently I fit a patient with a contact lens and about a
week later he actually called back asking to be refit with a different
brand of lenses cuz he could get them much cheaper and honestly I refused the
lens that he wanted was not only a very old lens technology but wasn’t correct
for his eye shape his power or his wear schedule and I get it we all want to
save money where we can but sacrificing your eye health and potentially revision
is just not something I think people want to do it’s kind of like asking you
a cardiologist to implant an outdated pacemaker it’s just not worth it but if
you’re looking to save money and still get a high quality contact lens here’s
three tips that’ll help you out the first tip is to buy in bulk just
like most other things on the market if you purchase in bulk usually the price
will drop most contact lens retailers will offer a huge discount when buying
at least six months supplies but you’ll get even a bigger discount if you
purchase a full year supply now I notice that people like to buy things online
for the convenience however keep in mind that some opticals and eye clinics
actually have access to manufacturer rebates these manufacturer rebates
depending on what lens you’re wearing could save you up to $200 off when
buying a year supply hit that like button for me if you like saving money
and pretty much every contact lens brand will have some type of a rebate
available in fact some eye clinics and opticals may even have bigger rebates
available than some of the others now for the second tip you want to listen up
because I’ve actually heard that less than 5% of all contact lens wearers
actually use this Ben and that is to utilize the point system
if you happen to be aware of a Bausch and Lomb product such as the Bausch and Lomb
ultra, the ultra lens for astigmatism or a biotrue one day lens where then you
can actually submit the actual purchase of those lenses to the boshin loans
website they actually have a rewards program will you actually earn points by
purchasing their products when you earn these points you can then use that to
get gift cards special other bonuses and prizes you can even donate them to
charity you can even receive tokens that you can
use for online games to again win more prizes and these things can add up I
think it’s pretty awesome I mean who doesn’t like playing games and winning
gift cards I don’t think every brand offers this but again just about all of
them offer some sort of rewards or discount program
now tip number three is to consider signing up for some type of a vision
benefit plan or vision discount plan these are usually available through your
employer but sometimes they are also available on the open market and it does
depend on what type of coverage that you sign up for but I have seen these plans
cover things like your contact lens fitting fees as well as contributing
toward the purchase of lenses it’s not uncommon to see a carrier offer up to
like a hundred and twenty dollars us toward contact lenses and then if you
use tip number one from before using a rebate you can save even more that adds
up pretty quickly and I can’t guarantee this would happen for you but I have
actually seen people make money when purchasing contacts because they were
able to use their vision benefit plan then get a rebate for it and they
actually came out ahead when does the last time you ever purchased a product
then you got a rebate in the mail and actually made money I’m not sure how the
math works on that but it’s still pretty awesome now I know a lot of people try
to save money with their contacts by either stretching out or over wearing
their lenses but that is not a good idea by over wearing lenses you’re actually
putting in your eyes at a greater risk of complications or infections and the
cost for doctors fees medications or a corneal transplant is way more expensive
than any contact lens on the market remember that you only get two eyes so
please take care of them so I health question of the day which one of these
tips was your favorite and have you ever made money when purchasing contacts go
