About ordering contactlenses at 123Optic

Is it safe to order contact lenses via the internet?

Absolutely! We provide exactly the same contact lenses as the optician or other online providers. Our contact lenses are manufactured by the same producers, such as Johnson & Johnson. However, we strongly recommend to regularly pay a visit to the optician or eye specialist for an eye check. This way you keep a close eye on the condition of your eyes and you know for sure that you are still ordering the right contact lenses!

Are the 123Optic brands original?

Both our lenses and lens solution are 100% original. Thanks to our smart stock system, the lenses are not only a lot cheaper, but also have a longer expiration date than their equivalents offered by opticians. This can be very useful for, for example, lens fluid or when you purchase larger numbers of contact lenses in one go.

Why order lenses at is up to 70% cheaper than the optician, without compromising on quality. Our service is reliable and safe. Moreover, the lenses are delivered quickly and you no longer have to leave the house for your own trusted contact lenses!

Which lenses do I need?

Unfortunately, we can’t tell which contact lenses fit best your eyes and lifestyle. Therefore we would advise you to contact an optician or other eye specialist. Once you know which lenses he or she finds most suitable for your eyes, you can order them a lot cheaper at!

Which lens solution do I need?

The same principle goes for lens fluid, which equally depend on personal preferences. For example, sometimes you may be allergic to certain ingredients or a lens solution simply feels better than another. Moreover, not just all lens solutions easily go together with every type of contact lens. Therefore always consult your optician or optometrist before changing your lens solution.

What are silicone hydrogel lenses?

Silicone Hydrogel lenses are made of a different material than the normal 'soft' lenses. The material these types of lenses are made of allow more oxygen to pass through. This significantly reduces the chance of dry eyes and your eyes will feel more relaxed.

What ar toric lenses?

If you have a cylindrical aberration, wear toric lenses. Toric contact lenses are designed for people with astigmatism, this means that there is a cylindrical defect. The curvature or bulging of the cornea or lens in the eye is also corrected, so that your vision becomes sharp again at all distances!

How often do I need to go to an optician for an eye check?

We recommend to have your eyes checked at least twice a year. If you do so every six months, any problems can be discovered in time and you can anticipate them well. This way you also keep a close eye on whether your eyes have deteriorated and the strength of your contact lenses still suits you. If you have any complaints in the meantime, don't hesitate to go sooner!
