High Street Opticians Contact Lenses and Equivalents

Expand your choices. Save money! Find an alternative to your contact lenses.

If you can’t find your current contact lenses on Alensa, you may be wearing private-label lenses from your optician. But, did you know you may have other options? If you have all the information about your lenses’ parameters, you’re free to buy your optician brand lenses from other online shops. Shop online from the comfort of home, and find the best deal around.

It’s a familiar scenario: When it’s time to re-order your lenses, you return to your optician to stock up and pay arbitrary prices…no questions asked. If you’ve looked for your private-label lenses online, your search probably comes up empty. That’s because most private-label lenses are only available from a limited network of high-street opticians.

Alensa has done the research for you and come up with an accurate comparison of private labels and their brand-name alternatives from trusted manufacturers including CooperVision, Bausch & Lomb, Alcon and others.

What are private-label lenses?

A private label is one that is tied to a particular optician or large retailer and cannot be purchased elsewhere. These brands are simply repackaged and relabelled lenses from established manufacturers to bear a particular optician or retailer’s name or logo.

But, you’re not limited to these private-label lenses. Buying brand-name lenses gives you the freedom to comparison shop for the best deals without being tied to monthly contracts and other conditions from opticians that can be costly and inconvenient. You can now choose a cheaper alternative from trusted lens manufacturers with confidence.

Take a look at our list of private-label brands from popular opticians and retailers, and you’ll find the brand-name alternative available on Alensa. We’ve matched the lens parameters so you can be sure to select an appropriate alternative.
