Although it is a very exciting thing to get several pairs of contact lenses for free in the mail, however there are a few tips a person should consider before requesting their own pair. If this is your first time getting your own lenses or requesting free contact lens sample pairs, you may want to talk to your doctor first. It’s hard to tell what lenses out there are good for the eyes and which ones are of poor quality but by speaking to your doctor, he/she can give you the heads up on some of the best brands. This information will allow you to go to the manufacturer’s site and only request lenses that will be beneficial for your eyes.
It is not such a bad idea to try different or new brands to see if they are of standards. Besides, you may be able to find another brand that you like and it may be cheaper. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this because if you are unsatisfied with the lenses, you can easily discard them without losing any money. The thing is some people don’t want to go through that finding the right lens process and may just want to go straight to trusted brands without trying others. This is fine too because you decrease your risk of getting horrible eye infections.
So, when you get a free contact lens trial, you not only want to check and make sure the brand is well known and high in customer satisfaction, but also make sure the company you are getting them from is a reputable company. Some companies will have you pay shipping and handling fee and then once you’ve given them your credit card information, you find out that the company is not legit or doesn’t exist. This is a common problem over the Internet.
Make sure companies have a secure way for you to pay for the shipping and handling. Also make sure that the company has been in business for a while as well. Everything we see on the Internet is not legit which is why we need to be careful. You may request free lenses only to find out there are no lenses at all, but as soon as you check your account, your money is gone.
All I am saying is to be careful where you give out your information and only deal with brands that are recommended by your eye doctor. This will keep your eyes healthy and safe. Nothing is more important than your eyesight and you must do everything you can to protect it.
