6 reasons why 1-800 Contacts is the best thing that ever happened to me

By Arielle


Anyone else have trouble seeing the board in school? Problem is, for a while you didn’t realize everyone else could read the board totally fine. So naturally you didn’t raise your hand for clarification, you thought no one else could see either. Maybe it wasn’t until your annual school vision test that you realized you needed help with your eyesight.

If this story sounds all too familiar, don’t worry, you’re not alone! I struggled for years, not knowing my vision was compromised. However, thanks to 1-800 Contacts, my journey to become a bionic human is well and truly underway.

And since right now, UNiDAYS app members can enter to win a $250 voucher, I thought I'd share how they’ve changed my life:

1. It's SO EASY

Every year, you have to renew your prescription with the ophthalmologist. Once you have the prescription, all you have to do is take a picture and upload into 1-800 Contacts ordering portal. It’s that easy and they figure out all the logistics.

2. Options for daaaaays

Just like us, eyes come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. This means we need options to see the world clearly. There’s over 38 types of contact lens brands available on the 1-800 Contacts website, so you will find what you’re looking for.
