Guys... does anyone have a good website to buy contact lenses direct? My youngest son used to be able to get his contacts at 1-800-contacts.com (or something similar) for around $15 a box. Good deal, and they weren't anal about insisting that the prescription be renewed every 12 months on the dot. (he's careful with his eyes, but his vision hasn't changed much. Sometimes he just can't fit in an exam immediately (or can't get an appointment) and he forgets to buy a few pair ahead.
Anyway.... Walmart bought out 1-800-contacts- and immediately raised the price from $15 a box to $48 a box. When he complained, they said "well, you've got insurance, right? What's the problem?" Of course, being my kid, he says "every time we use insurance to OVERpay for medical stuff, it costs all of us. Just because I have insurance isn't an excuse to rip me off!"
Anyway... does anyone know of an equivalent to Zenni Optical online for contact lenses? He'll probably have to get a new prescription (and now he was just told that WalMart doesn't TAKE his insurance, when he had an exam scheduled! Good grief)
But there must be someplace out there where it's possible to still get a reasonable price for these things.
Thanks in advance...
