    Absolutely - it's one of those items (along with glasses, amongst others) that are much cheaper online.

    For many years I have got mine from contact lenses.co.uk
    A really good service with really good prices.

    If happy with the Boots service, stick with them

    Yes, IME, which is why I posted thus. I search the cheapest supplier at the time. If Boots has changed its pricing to compete, that's great.

    I buy mine online. I believe it to be cheaper. You find Boots competitive. I shall take a look at their prices as a result of your post.

    I'm really not looking for an argument at 10am on a Sunday morning, having been requested to share my view by you.

    Asda opticians may be worth looking at, my single vision monthlies are £12 for a box of 3 lenses, these are the cheapest I’ve found online. Contact lenses.co.uk charge £14.50 for the same lenses so @ianrauk it may be worth comparing prices.

    They are quite expensive, £42 for 30 pairs at Asda, I don’t know what you Pay?

    I think I’d stick with boots as it sounds a good deal. A contact lense eye check costs me £29!

    Annually I think is the norm but it sounds good advise to have another check in 6 months if you have just started wearing lenses.

    I use Lens Store online. Saved 66.66% on the exact kit from the high street. You get free eye checks with various Opticians to keep your prescription up to date.

    After a chainsaw injury a year ago I started wearing monthly disposables after an emergency check up. I have never looked back and the quality of my life has really improved. And my descent speed on my bike.

    Thanks all for the useful thread. Am back to wearing contact lenses on a more ad-hoc basis, as I don't particularly like riding with my spectacles. Previously used an optician with a monthly plan, so got the benefit of discounts and checkups. But for the more random purchases I will be making, the internet suppliers may be the cheaper option. Will check out Asda, @Spiderweb, then go from there.
