Contact Lenses

Is this the first time you are buying contact lenses online? We understand this can be confusing, especially if you are a first time wearer of contact lenses. The first thing to do when you buy contact lenses online is to meet with an optician to determine the correct prescription for you. You should remember that your glasses prescription is different to a contact lens prescription as it sits directly on the eye. The next step is to identify your needs; do you want to throw your lenses out at the end of the day? Have the same pair for a month? Or do you want to be able to sleep with them as well? You can read more about the benefits of the different types of lenses below. Another point to consider is what brand you want to buy from? You can read more about the brands we provide further down. Remember to always consult your optician before switching to a new brand!

If you are looking for lenses online NZ you have come to the right place! SmartBuyGlasses is the best place for you to buy cheap contact lenses online in NZ.

Daily Contact Lenses

One-day lenses are, as the name suggests, lenses designed to be worn for a day. There are a number of benefits to choosing one-day lenses. Above all, they are the obvious choice for those who do not want to spend so much time and effort on the actual handling of your lenses. With one-day lenses, you avoid all forms of cleaning and care, you only throw away your lenses when you are done with them for the day. One-day lenses are therefore not made to sleep with or be used several times. It simply does not get easier and smoother to use lenses. There are also several hygienic benefits of one-day lenses, one important one is that by changing lenses daily you greatly reduce the risk of eye irritation. Most experts agree that the more often you change lenses the better. This is also why one-day lenses are often recommended for allergy sufferers. Your lenses will have reduced dirt on them, which reduces the risk of eye irritation. Another great benefit of daily contact lenses is that one-day lenses only cost when you choose to use them. It will be especially beneficial for those who use lenses infrequently or if you’re looking to alternate lenses with glasses.

Monthly Contact Lenses

Monthly lenses are the most common type of lenses. As the name reveals, the lenses are designed to be used for a month. It’s not hard to see why monthly lenses are such a popular category of contact lenses! The main reason is they are both affordable and easy to care for.

A big advantage of monthly lenses is that they are available for almost all vision defects. Here you will find multifocal lenses and toric lenses among others. SmartBuyGlasses range is so large that you can be assured to find monthly lenses for your specific needs. And if you are eager to change your eye color, you can check out our colored contact lenses.

You clean your monthly lenses by cleaning them in contact solution and then you take them out for the evening and store them in a lens case. When you then put them in the next morning, they are clean and ready to use. Monthly lenses last for 30 days, after which they must be discarded. You should not use them for longer than that as you may be at risk of getting an infection. 30 days applies from the day you open the package of a new pair of lenses. If you do not use lenses as often, but only from time to time, daily contact lenses may be a better option for you instead.

Colored Contact Lenses

Most colored contact lenses are designed to mimic the eye's natural appearance. It is very easy to find lenses that enhance the blue, brown or green eye color. These are the most common colored lenses purchased. But of course there are lenses that are a little crazier like white, black, red, or other scary colors. There are also patterned lenses, which for example represent cat eyes. These are not usually worn daily, but are available for special occasions. Many people use colored lenses for Halloween or masquerade, for example. It is possible to buy colored contact lenses with or without prescription. You can read more about colored contact lenses here or shop our colored contact lenses.

Contact Lenses for Astigmatism and Multifocal Contact Lenses

If you need to buy contacts for astigmatism, you will come across the term toric contact lenses. These contacts are made to refract light in different ways to help treat astigmatism. If you’re suffering from low levels of astigmatism, aspherical contacts will be the ones you need. There is, however, a difference between multifocal contact lenses and spherical contacts. Multifocal lenses have different prescriptions built in, to correct different vision problems from nearsightedness to farsightedness, and any other issue in-between. Spherical contacts are either meant for nearsightedness or farsightedness. To know which ones are right for you, check your prescription or ask your optometrist.

Contact Lenses for Dry Eyes

The best contact lenses for dry eyes are Silicone Hydrogel lenses and all wearers should give these a go at least once to see if they are for them! Good for those who tend to wear their lenses for more than twelve hours a day, particularly if they spend a lot of time in low humidity environments. Patients with high prescriptions, or younger people who haven’t yet got the hang of their contact lens’ wear and maintenance routine, will also benefit, as will anyone who regularly experiences dryness, redness, or any other discomfort towards the end of a day wearing traditional contact lenses. If you want to know more about these types of contact lenses, you can read our article about it in our Optical Center here.
