Be advised that big box retailers and on-line contact lens suppliers will no longer be able to offer substantial discount pricing on contacts. Manufacturers including Alcon, Bausch & Lomb, and Vistakon (Acuvue) have put into effect unilateral pricing policies to ensure patients will receive the most consistent prices on contact lenses regardless of where they purchase them. These contact lens companies are now dictating the minimum price per box that both doctors offices and online retailers can charge patients.

Eye Consultants of Atlanta has always been competitive with contact lens prices. With these new unilateral pricing policies going into effect, patients can be assured that we will continue to sell contacts for the lowest allowable price per the manufacturer. There is no need to shop around since we have adopted the policy of selling contacts for the minimum suggested retail price.

In addition, patients who currently wear Acuvue Oasys can no longer purchase (6) packs of this lens after July 1, 2014. The Oasys will now come in a (12) pack or a (24) pack. One (24) pack per eye is an annual supply and is a better value than two (12) packs per eye. Acuvue is doing this to streamline the contact lens purchasing experience for patients.

Come in and visit one of our contact lens centers or order your lenses on the ECA website quickly and easily.
