We sell all major brands plus equivalents for all the main UK opticians own brands. If you cannot see the name of your contact lenses on our site, we probably sell them under a different name. For example, in the Daily Disposable section, Specsavers easyvision One Day lenses are the same as Boots own brand daily lens. If you can't find your lenses, please contact our Customer Service Department on 0808 172 00 72 or complete our online form and we’ll find them for you.

Yes. Regulations governing the dispensing of contact lenses means that we can’t supply you with contact lenses beyond the expiry date on your current specification.
A valid contact lens specification is one that has been issued by a registered optician or contact lens practitioner and which has not exceeded its expiry date. It will detail the full contact lens specification, including the manufacturer, type of lens, base curve, diameter and the powers. If you are a Specsavers customer we will obtain your specification from our records. If you are not an existing Specsavers customer, you must register your optician’s details with us, and we will verify your specification with them.
Just ask the optician who issued your contact lens specification - they are required by law to provide it for you. Please request the original specification where possible, not a copy.
We cannot supply you with contact lenses unless you have a valid contact lens specification. You should contact your optician to arrange for a check-up – which may be chargeable. You may also need a sight test and this may again be chargeable. We can easily make these arrangements with your nearest Specsavers store. Just click “Book an appointment” in the main menu.

We will discuss your requirements with you and advise accordingly.

Diameter - Also known as the Total Diameter (TD) measured in millimetres and is the total diameter of the contact lens
