CoastalContacts->Lensway

Sorry I haven't been posting lately - I've been hanging out on the MoneySavingExpert cheap contact lens forum reading what buyers have to say (and showing them why I think VisionDirect.co.uk has the best contact lens service). I've learned a lot, and it's fun to see how well VisionDirect.co.uk stacks up against the competition.

Now back to the grindstone: I received an interesting mail today saying "CoastalContacts.co.uk has changed to Lensway.co.uk!". I can't find any reference to this on their websites, but the email says "As of October 10th Coastal Contacts will transition customers to LensWay".

So, I went over to the LensWay site to compare prices. LensWay claims that "this month we have lowered our prices", and claim a 9% discount on Soflens One Day. However, their price (26.90 GBP per box plus 3.50 in shipping = 30.40 GBP), even with a discount, is higher than VisionDirect.co.uk (27.50 GBP plus free shipping = 27.50), whose price is TEN PERCENT cheaper.

Your best bet for cheap contact lenses continues to be VisionDirect.co.uk.
