Thread: Contacts European Prescription

  1. #1

    Default Contacts European Prescription

    Hello Everyone.
    I'm trying to order contacts online. I got an eye exam half a year ago when I was in Europe and I know all of the numbers (Diopters, Basis-curve...). The problem is that all the sites I've seen so far require me to enter a US doctor's contact info, who prescribed the contacts.
    Is there any way around this?
    I would rather not spend time and money on another eye exam.
    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hello Clay and welcome to the forum.

    Well you could just order from Europe, etc. though may be more expensive in postage, but be sure to ask for the European Sales Tax to be deducted from your bill if you are outside the European Union.

    Or perhaps you contact the website you want to buy the contacts from, in the US and explain the situation by email or phone. You will need to give the European eye care specialist and contact details, who carried out the eye exam.

    Shouldn't be necessary to have another eye check. I don't think there is anything in the US Law that specifies the exam must be carried out by a US Eye Care Specialist.

    That's a good question. I didn't even know all that stuff about European Sales Tax. I wonder if anyone has ordered from Lens.com with a prescription from a European doctor?

    I think maybe I'll contact them and find out how this is done. If you would like to do the same, you can call them internationally at 1-573-754-3600.

    If email is your preferred contact method, try Service@Lens.com.

    Thanks guys!

    Are there any sites that don't check the prescription at all? This would just make things a lot easier.

    Oo, well . . . I wouldn't buy contacts from a place that didn't look carefully at prescriptions. It might make it easier to order the contact lenses, but it might make them more difficult to wear.
    If I'm going to tuck some little plastic discs under my eyelids, I'd want to make sure that a licensed professional was in on the process, you know?

    I personally would phone/email the cheaper Mail Order companies on the Internet and ask them. If they don't want to do business, fine, go elsewhere.

    Non USA Mail Order companies are probably better left as a fall back option, because of Exchange Rate variations and of course postage. For me Lens.com price themselves out of the market because they want such huge amounts of cash for delivery to Europe. This is obviously not a problem for USA consumers and obviously certain countries have a bad record of items 'getting lost' in the mail, e.g. Italy and obviously parts of Africa.

    Really? How does Lens.com compare to others as far as shipping to Europe? Is it a lot more?

    I don't know about the others in the US. I did the exercise for soft lenses with Lens.com but it was expensive and of course we in Europe have to add another 23% or so for German Sales Tax (19%) and EU Import Duty 2-3% usually - and that is on the cost of the lenses AND the cost of the freight.

    I was unlucky enough to drop a RGP lens a couple of weeks back and then must have stood on it. lens.com don't do Menicon RGP lenses, which I wear, so I cannot compare prices directly. But I don't think they would have beaten a German Mail Order company for the lens, particularly as the German company delivered 'free of charge', whereas Lens.com needs $20, i.e. $24.60 after EU tax & Import Duty added. Then the German Customs (Zoll) sit on the delivery for about two to three weeks while payment of the duties are settled. Exchange rate can make the purchase more or less favourable, but at present, it's better to buy in Europe for me, provided I can source what I want within Europe.

    Wow. So I guess if you live outside of the United States, then it doesn't really make sense to buy American. At least for contact lenses, anyway. Bummer.

    It's really a case of doing the sums properly so as not to get any nasty surprises. Some things are just easier to find in the US (I have an ageing Sheperd Gas BarBQ bought in Canada) and I can usually get spares for it in the US, though cast iron bits are heavy and therefore, expensive. I had a Camping Gaz portable gas grill bought in Germany, but their after sales service was completely useless as regards spares, so needless to say I will never buy any other Camping Gaz equipment.

    Some fishing lures can be cheaper in the States than here also, but of course they are not so heavy.

    I wanted to buy an after market mud guard for my motor bike. I selected a manufacturer but had to drop the whole idea as they wanted to charge $70 just for freight - and the guard was just a small piece of plastic .

    It's a bit of a lottery I'm afraid.

    Clay, you're back.

    How come you don't want to get a prescription? It's not hard to do. I like what Momalina2 said as well: "If I'm going to tuck some little plastic discs under my eyelids, I'd want to make sure that a licensed professional was in on the process, you know?"

    It would probably be a lot easier to get a prescription that to find some dodgy place that doesn't require one. How would you like get on an airplane and hear the pilot say "Pilot's license? I don't need no stinking pilot's license!"

    Any place that will sell you contact lenses without asking to see a doctor's prescription first is no place to do business with.

    Actually, the prescription for contacts is very simple: it's just a value of lens power (unless you have astigmatism/other disorders of the eye) and a value of curvature. I don't feel like spending time and paying $40 for an eye exam.

    Hi Clay. Welcome back.

    Just because there are only two (or sometimes three) numbers included in a prescription doesn't mean that it's simple. Otherwise there would probably be a section on Lens.com telling you how to find your own prescription, just like there are some websites that tell you how to measure yourself for jeans or something.



    Let's also keep in mind that prescriptions change. I had a period of about three years where my prescription changed every year. I couldn't tell. I had to see my eye doctor to learn that.
    If you want to save money by doing a home improvement project by yourself with out asking any advice from a professional, that's one thing, but contact lenses are a different matter all together. Really bad things can happen if you get it wrong.
    I think getting correctly fitted for contact lenses and making sure my eyes are healthy is worth the forty bucks.

    Well, you're right about the curvature, I have no idea how to measure it at home. Good thing I can look it up on my year-old prescription. The optical power, though, couldn't be easier to measure. What do you find difficult about it?

    Besides, I'm trying to combine eye relaxation/exercise with wearing lenses that are slightly weaker than my prescription to make my eyesight improve.

    I can't answer for Enah, but I've been reading this forum a long time and learned a lot about eyes, but I still would have no idea how measure my optical power. You mean the first part of my prescription, the sphere, right? I don't see how it "couldn't be easier to measure."

    I see you're going to try some eye exercises to improve your vision. I think many of us on Lens 101 would be very interested in knowing if those exercises really work. Have you started yet?

  21. #21

    Default

    If you have a few pairs of eye glasses or contacts of different strengths you can look at an eye chart and see which ones work best for you, to measure the power/sphere. The doctor/optometrist does the same thing by flipping different lenses and asking "better of worse?"

    I am going to briefly describe the physical principle behind eye exercise. When the eye looks close the ciliary muscle contracts and bends the lens inside of the eye to focus. When the eye looks far it relaxes.
    One of the causes of near-sightedness is that by doing way too much close work: reading, writing, chatting on forums, the ciliary muscle goes into a spasm and can't relax when the eye needs to looks far. If this persists for too long the eye will accommodate by pumping more fluid into the eyeball, thus making the eyeball longer and suited for close vision with less muscle contraction but at the same time unsuited for distance.
    The main eye relaxation is palming: placing palms over closed eyes for 5+ minutes.
    This and other exercises improved my vision probably by 0.5 to 1 diopters over a year.

    Now when you say that these "exercises improved [your] vision probably by 0.5 to 1 diopters over a year" is that based on measurements you've taken yourself, or has an eye care professional told you that your vision has improved by that much?
    Your technique involves using "a few pairs of eye glasses or contacts of different strengths," but I've been wearing the same pair of glasses for a number of years now and I don't have any old glasses. If I did and I "see which ones work best" for me, wouldn't it stand to reason that the pair I wear now would work best? Why bother comparing them to old glasses?

    I had 0.75 diopter change in my prescription in 1 eye over 3 months or something.

    That depends on how your vision fluctuated over the year. If it deteriorated, then yes. In which case you would also need to find some glasses that are stronger than what you currently wear and compare the two.

    Tony asked a good question. Where would someone get all those different strength glasses to try? You might be able to shop that way for reading glasses, but what if you're nearsighted?

    Thanks for your reply, Clay, but that doesn't answer my question. This diopter change you mentioned, were the measurements taken by the same eye doctor both times? Did he or she double-check to confirm that your eyes actually got better?

    Two different doctors took the exams. The second prescription was weaker than the first: so, an improvement in vision, yay!

    As for glasses:
    You can find glasses for about ten dollars online on sites like zenni optical, goggles 4 u, and a bunch of others.
    I just thought of this: maybe you could even order a bunch of different glass/plastic lenses somewhere. Some of the glasses sites might have them on special order.

    Or you can just go to your eye doctor, get an examination and a prescription, buy one pair of glasses and be done.

    Non USA Mail Order companies are probably better left as a fall back option, because of Exchange Rate variations and of course postage. For me Lens.com price themselves out of the market because they want such huge amounts of cash for delivery to Europe. This is obviously not a problem for USA consumers and obviously certain countries have a bad record of items 'getting lost' in the mail, e.g. Italy and obviously parts of Africa.

    Thank you for those comments about Lens.com. Do you think their prices are good for those who are shopping in America? I can see what you mean about having the lenses shipped to Europe. After you pay for shipping and handling it can get quite expensive.
