Pros / Many common brands are available.
Cons / There is no free shipping no matter how much you spend.
Verdict / Contact Lens King isn’t as regal as the name would suggest.
When it comes to being contact lens royalty, this website doesn’t reign supreme. Counting those with several different lines of contacts just once, there are only 24 brands of lenses available. This is a far cry from other websites that have almost twice as many. While there is a large selection of common contact types such as toric, multifocal, bifocal, colored and a plethora of disposable lenses, there is no price match guarantee. Websites like AC Lens and 1-800-Contacts will match lower prices from competitors and give you a little bit of a discount on top of that.
Nonetheless, this website did get a B+ on our price comparison test, so it has generally affordable lenses. Keep in mind that you’ll have to pay for shipping unless you find a coupon code online. While we were reviewing this website, there was a coupon on Contact Lens King’s landing page for 10 percent off your purchase. You can expect shipping to take roughly three to six days depending on how quickly the prescription verification process goes for you and the mood of the United States Postal Service.
The Contact Lens King website is easy to get around. There is even an obvious tab you can click on to read about the difference between a Flexible Spending Account and Health Savings Account and how they apply to contact lens purchases. There are also reading glasses for sale, though only five pairs, there aren’t any prescription frames available. This site sticks almost exclusively to contact lenses, offering one kind of contact solution – Solus – for purchase as well.
You only have 30 days after you buy contacts to return them, a far cry from some websites that allow returns up to a year. A couple services have no time limit at all. Overall this site didn’t blow us away, but it does sell many common contact lens brands like Air Optix, Acuvue and Dailies.
