I choose Simple Contacts for one reason. An Online Vision Test. These guys have come up with a technology that will give you a valid prescription by doing an online eye test that checks for a few things:
- Eye redness – you stand 6 inches from your cam on your computer and follow the online prompts of looking up, left, and right. That’s it.
- Distance test – you need to stand 10 feed from your computer and then read the words on the screen to determine your prescription. You can choose to do it with contacts in or out.
I’m assuming that to get a valid prescription that certain criteria are needed for a vision doctor to prescribe your needs and these two tests are all that are needed.
Now, this should not replace getting your eyes fully checked in case you have other health issues as this test is mainly for renewing your current prescription if you think you don’t have any other eye health issues.

Brands Offered By SimpleContacts.com
As of today the brand offered are:
- Air Optix
- Avaira Vitality
- Biotrue ONEday
- Clariti 1 Day
So quite a bit to choose from. I’ve been using Acuvue Oasys for years now and didn’t want to have to go to the eye doctor just to renew my prescription.
I found this to be a convenient way of reordering contact lenses. And to renew the prescription is only $20 compared to $90+ by going to the eye doctor. Of course you are not getting that one on one interaction with a real eye doctor that will also be albe to determine if you have other eye issues which may be important. So I recommend to use this if you are 100% certain your prescription is the same and that you don’t have other issues.
