    Default Did You Ever Order Focus Dailies Progressives Over the Phone?

    I just read about ordering contact lenses over the phone. Have you ever heard of this?
    How do they verify that you've got a valid prescription?

    Default Phoning It In

    I guess you give them the information over the phone, and then you fax them your prescription.



    The phone number for Lens.com is 1-800-LENS.COM (536-7266.)

    Here's what you'll need:

    A contact lens prescription is made up of specific data which we require to fill your order. All of this information is available on the packaging of the contact lenses you are currently wearing, or from your optometrist or optician. In most states eye care professionals are required to provide you with a copy upon request. Be sure it contains all the necessary information, including expiration date, and is signed by your eye care professional.

    Here is the information that we need:

    OD = Right Eye
    OS = Left Eye
    Brand Name (e.g. Acuvue)
    BC / Base Curve (a number between 8.0 and 10.0)
    DIA / Diameter (a number between 13.0 and 15.0)
    Power / Sphere / Rx (a number between -20 and +20)

    For astigmatic patients, we also need:
    Cylinder (a number between -4.00 and +4.00)
    Axis (a number between 0 and 180)
    Cylinder and Axis are usually separated by "X" and read as "times"

    A regular prescription would look like this:

    OS Brand Name: Acuvue
    OS BC: 8.8 DIA: 14.4 SPHERE: -2.50

    OD Brand Name: Optima FW
    OD BC: 8.4 DIA: 14.0 SPHERE: -2.75

    A prescription for astigmatism would look like this:

    OS Brand Name: Acuvue Toric
    OS BC: 8.8 DIA: 14.4 SPHERE: -2.50
    OS CYL & AXIS:- 1.25 X 180

    OD Brand Name: Focus Toric
    OD BC: 8.7 DIA: 14.0 SPHERE: -4.50
    OD CYL & AXIS:- 0.75 X 95

    This information may appear complicated but in fact it is very straightforward. Just consult your current contact lens packaging for reference.

    I suppose it works better on the phone than on the "phome."

    However, that doesn't mean you can't attend a "phome" party. Maybe the kids will start spelling in like that from now on and I can become an icon of all things trendy.

    I did a Google search and guess what? I did actually find several entries for "phome parties." You win!
