We've all been there: you were so excited for your big trip that you forgot to pack your contact lenses! If you are travelling internationally, you can usually buy contact lenses over the counter without a prescription. If you are travelling in the US, your options are much more limited. Check out our ideas on what to do when you forget your contact lenses on vacation.
1. Order Contact Lenses with FREE Next Day Shipping
We know you don't want to miss a single moment of your vacation. That's why ContactLensesNextDay.com offers free next day shipping on all contact lens orders. All you need to do is find your brand and place an order.
If you have a copy of your contact lens prescription, we can ship your order immediately. If you don't have a copy, we can call your eye doctor and request a copy (which can take up to one additional business day).
If you're on vacation and need more contacts, then complete your order before 2pm Eastern and we'll get your contacts to you the very next day!
2. Visit a Local Eye Doctor for Trials
Most eye doctors carry small, trial packets of popular brands of contact lenses. If you have a copy of your prescription handy, a local eye doctor may let you purchase a few trials to hold you over until you get home.
3. Buy Contacts from a Local Store
If you have a copy of your prescription, you could also buy contacts from a local eye doctor, or a chain like Walmart. If you wear a popular brand, these locations may have your lenses in stock and be able to sell you them immediately.
